“For the first edition of Cc Strombeek's Wunderkammer festival, we invited young artist Yi Zhang. She got to work with in situ material and placed a shower in the fountain of the cultural center. She refers to the idea of privacy and intimacy. Also to having a place to live, a house. Often in the city we see people using fountains when they don't have a house to wash themselves in. Yi makes us aware of the vulnerable in society and the use of public space in an intimate way.”--Cc Strombeek
