Art Nouveau Noise: seeing extremities in aestheticism combined through different interpretations of classically inspired art with a continuous dark experimental edge, a touch of eighties glam, and above all music. | Photo
COALESCAREMONIUM: meaning ‘Coalescent Ceremony’, is a grandioso
Gothic happening that combines unseen international acts with local
talent from the various sub-genres of Gothic culture into
a grand day of celebration; with high attention to detail and
focus on music, performance, dance, art and fashion.
Each year, Coalescaremonium exhibits different acts, stands and expositions under a central theme. For its 4th edition this theme is "Art Nouveau Noise"; inspired by an art movement Brussels is most famous for.
Art Nouveau, initially seen as a noisy countermovement to the mass production form the Belle Epoque period, is akin to the Goth scene in its sense of individualism and love for unique and intricate design. Bundled with a dark touch you will see these influences returning through music, artwork and decoration all throughout the day, presented to you by underground artists Nocturne, Discipulus, La Dutchessa and TElombre.
