As soon as you enter the space of House of Vans you experience both: excitement and perplexity; A spacious skatepark is surrounded by vintage Vans sneakers, a sight which won't let anyone expect an art exhibition to be held such a space. People of different ages, interests and styles have converged together within the concrete dungeon to appreciate the expansive work of art. 




Lucas Blasberg, photographer and participant of the LCF MA17 exhibition, has shared his ideas and thoughts with Laboutik:

L: What is your project about?

LB: Well, it's about anxiety, really. The three stages of anxiety: fear, stress and panic. It shows how you feel and what you see, or I see, during those stages.

L: Why do you want to speak about anxiety? 

LB: It’s very personal. I’m not sure how to explain it. It's just a very personal project.

L: What does it express?

LB: So this is basically what I see during those stages, but it also made to make the audience feel and experience it. Probably not now, because there is a lot going on around us. I also work with infrasound-the soundtrack you can’t hear, but it makes you feel anxious. Infrasound is a very high-pitched sound that people can’t here.

L: Is it on now?

LB: It’s on now, but due to the noise around, you probably don’t realize it and you can’t hear it anyway. Yet, the sound makes you tense. It’s subconscious. Everything is subconscious. That’s why I don’t have a sign “step closer”, so people would experience it on their own. So these are just x-rays of my body, showing that I’m perfectly healthy on the physical side. However, if you take your time and step closer, you’ll see that there is much more than meets the eye.
