Belgian Works, 2004-6
approx. 75 minutes
Naval Cassidy traveled to Belgium in 2004 and 2005 to perform works created for and about Europeans. Differences and similarities are entertained in these snail's eye views of USA and European society. The DVD concludes with a re-visit and re-hash of Naval's little European adventure, seen from the peculiar perspective of his collection of props found in the second hand stores of Lier, Genk, and Antwerp. Signed and numbered by the artist.
