"Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms."
- Alfred Hitchcock

In Dialogue - Meryem Bayram / Marc Nagtzaam
15/07 - 21/08: Fred&Ferry Gallery, Antwerp (BE)
Opening 15/07: 17h - 21h

For the summer months, Meryem Bayram and Marc Nagtzaam have been invited to enter into dialogue with each other. In the work of Meryem Bayram the unfolding relation between human behavior and a constructed spatial environment is the central driving force. With wood, cardboard and elastics, she creates installations that trace and reshape the outlines of physical space and in a same gesture, are challenging living bodies to inhabit and transform that space. Marc Nagtzaam has been producing a body of work that is based on one main subject: the idea of pattern, the repetition. He draws lines, grids, circles, words or sentences as in an endless search for collecting pieces of information. 

11 Seconds - Charlotte Bouckaert
29/07 - 30/07: Theater Aan Zee, Ostend (BE)

Eleven seconds: that is the average time we spend on a work of art. In 11 seconds, Charlotte Bouckaert and her audience watch one photograph for a long time: an exterior view of the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Charlotte Bouckaert is fascinated by photography. In her performances, she handles the camera in such a way that it is not the solidified photograph that gets our attention, but the action that precedes it. Or, as in 11 seconds, a photograph gets a new life in surprising stories. Read more...

PURE - Christian Bakalov
18/03 - 30/09: Stormopkomst, Turnhout (BE)

PURE is an immersive performative installation that investigates the influence of imagination and narratives on our perception of reality and their impact on the relations that compose « Me » and the « others things ». Swaying between visual arts and performance, PURE generate interactions between bodies and objects and creates situations in which the audience, the performers and the installations has equal function into a common art object.

Tertius, Quartus and Sextus  - Meryem Bayram
Kunsthal Extra City
© Still Image of Periphery by HART and Kunsthal Extra City

Bayram plays with the correlations between sonic tones and geometry, mathematical relationships and light. The artist has placed a series of wooden circles in a hidden corridor that in the past was reserved for the monks of the former monastery. With the placement of these abstract objects, the artist visualises the dimensions of the corridor and challenges our perspective of space and the passing of time. In the daylight we experience the purity of the wooden circles, enhanced by a subtle light installation. At dusk, the light installation activates the geometric forms to the rhythm of the tertius, quartus and sextus: sonic tones that were used by ancient stonemasons as part of a means of measurement. Learn more...

Emre Hüner’s solo exhibition [ELEKTROİZOLASYON]: Unknown Parameter Extro-Record brings together new works created around a semi-fictional script. Hüner releases the script from its function and repositions it as a mediating device among different media, such as film, novel, and architecture, proposing an open method of production, a process of scriptwriting rather than reaching a conclusive outcome. Read more...
