Borrowed Landscape-Brussels unfolds at a Carrefour supermarket in Brussels (Anderlecht) and is presented there on September 5 and 6 2013. The performance aims to highlight the unique reality that is the supermarket, to expose some of the rules and codes according to which it operates, and to put into question our personal shopping habits as well as the larger forces that shape our everyday behavior and experiences.
