As it occupied an exceptional space in the traditional gallery, it has become a reference piece for the different spatial strategies developed by artists since Minimalism, and for the manifold other &lsquo;corner pieces&rsquo; artists have produced ever since.</p> <p>Insisting on contemporary art but also looking at modernist precedents, the project will outline the conceptual and visual reasons for which certain works inhabit the corners of exhibition spaces, addressing the viewer in particular ways and deflecting attention from the &lsquo;centre of the stage&rsquo;. The exhibition will consist in a mix of existing, adapted and specially produced works, installed in a particular, sculptural scenography designed by artist Philip Metten.</p> Wed, 17 Jun 2015 09:24:37 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list Farah Atassi - Extra City - September 11th 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p>The floating syntheses of space and time in Belgian painter Farah Atassi&rsquo;s works describe autonomous worlds that are uniquely intriguing. Building enveloping environments through intricate scale distortions of what appear to modernist forms, or motifs derived from folkloric patterning, many of Atassi&rsquo;s paintings construct a disconcerting sense of &lsquo;display&rsquo; for figures that are barely differentiated volumetrically from their surroundings. Her paintings can be apprehended through a calculated reformulation of camouflage, a form of concealing the old and in the new and vice-versa.</p> <p>Nods to L&eacute;ger, Malevich, Mondrian or Charles &amp; Ray Eames coexist in an exploration of decorative motifs and architectural interiors: in an expanded understanding of d&eacute;cor, of the ornamental taking over a structural role in organizing a picture. False symmetries, misleading mirror effects, decentred vanishing points are all used not as instruments of deception or &lsquo;trompe l&rsquo;oeil&rsquo;, but as devices to bring the visitor closer and trigger a sustained look at the ways in which they cohere, spatially and conceptually: at a mysterious theatre of objects of stages, models for objects, sculptures, for architecture or commerce, for flatness and perspective.</p> Wed, 17 Jun 2015 09:27:08 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list Karolien Chromiak, Jane Coppin, Elise Eeraerts, Daan Gielis, Lore Van Roelen - Extra City - September 11th 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p>&lsquo;STRT Kit &ndash; the exhibition&rsquo; is the final result of the first STRT Kit edition, an initiative by&nbsp;<a href="http://www.studiostart.be/" rel="nofollow">Studio Start</a>&nbsp;in collaboration with&nbsp;<a href="http://www.airantwerpen.be/" rel="nofollow">AIR Antwerpen</a>&nbsp;and Extra City Kunsthal Antwerpen.&nbsp;</p> <p>Five emerging visual artists, selected by an international jury out of an open call, took part in this international development program. For the duration of one year they used a collective work and presentation space, met international curators, artists and organizers and participated in a project week in Beirut. This exhibition presents new work by all artists, dealing with the encounters and experiences that happened throughout the year. Curators Luis Silva and Jo&atilde;o Mour&atilde;o (Kunsthalle Lissabon, Portugal) curate this group show at Extra City.</p> Wed, 17 Jun 2015 09:28:50 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list
