Synergia

September 18, 2020

Synergy (cooperation) is the extra yield that arises when parts are combined compared to the sum of those parts. In this way both artists approach their friendship and the visual dialogue they develop here. Both have already developed a layered and substantive visual oeuvre and exhibit both in Flanders and abroad. Joke Raes is known for her eye for detail and often uses nature as inspiration, Jonas Vansteenkiste is previously known for his monumental installations and reflections on the house and architecture. In this expo they show a selection and a foretaste from the wider oeuvre. We are now bringing these apparent opposites together. But are they opposites or do they have more tangent points than it first appears?

PLATFORM #8: Joke Raes

NODIGT UIT

Che Go Eun, Nick Ervinck, Maartje Folkeringa, Inger Heeschen, Brecht Heytens, Stéphanie Leblon, Rebekka Löffler, William Ludwig Lutgens, Thibo Moreels, Sara Plantefève-Castryck, Mathias Prenen, Luth Lea Roose, Boy & Eric Stappaerts, Jonas Vansteenkiste, Robin Vermeersch en Tinne Zenner            

Joke Raes (°1983, Brugge) woont in Gent en combineert haar eigen praktijk aan een lesopdracht voor Academie Brugge. Haar tekeningen, sculpturen en installaties ontstaan schijnbaar moeiteloos maar wie naderbij komt duizelt het van de detaillering: elk werk is met grote aandacht gemaakt, verraadt obsessie met het oppervlak en alles wat daarachter ligt. Haar organische beeldtaal is die van het amazonewoud, van de woekerende, wriemelende natuur waarin de mens één soort is te midden van alle andere. Met haar eclectische, tactiele materiaalgebruik probeert ze de grens tussen cultuur en natuur te op te heffen: de mens vervaagt in de natuur en de natuur verdwijnt door toedoen van de mens.

research Project Pedegre

January 01, 2020

My project Pedigree was selected for: Creative Living Labs Triple Play (C2L3Play) Elaboration of a cross-border network of living labs. Strengthen the research and innovation of the cross-border area in strategic sectors and those with strong complementarity.

 

pedigree (houses as containers of memory's) starts from an investigation into the house and its history. In recent years I have been

conducting an in-depth investigation into it house as a physical and psychological place. I also have a great fascination for archive and

historical research into architectural elements that tell more about us. This project starts from the open source data: a digital surface model

in grid format including objects, buildings. My project wants to develop a family tree of houses in this region in order to visualize this data,

so that we also have a different relationship with this data. The pedigree itself could work digitally and in terms of drawings but the ideal

end result would be a physical installation of the family tree with 3d printed houses and components.

Exhibition of

Jonas Vansteenkiste en Veerle Michiels 

Een site als Raversyde ATLANTIKWALL blijft ons permanent en kritisch herinneren aan oorlog en conflict. Jonas Vansteenkiste en Veerle Michiels gaan op zoek naar de historische context en proberen te activeren in het heden. In Raversyde gebruiken ze bunkers en kunst om een hedendaags verhaal te brengen aan de bezoeker. Kom je verwonderen.

Salon des Artistes

July 03, 2020

Salon des Artistes is a meeting place where art lovers and artists meet, meet and where our visual art is the binding agent. A platform to promote our artists. The aim is for artists to show new work to art lovers and to discuss the quality and / or subject of the new work in an equal way. In support of the artist, the displayed works are also offered for sale during the Salons des Artistes. The artists are selected by curators, which should guarantee a diversity of styles. The artists can represent a gallery. And artists who are still looking for a gallery get a platform here to make themselves known to gallery owners, collectors and museums. The curators for the Salon des Artistes - Summer 2020 in Ronse are: Willem Elias, Els Wuyts, Isolde De Buck, Johan Debruyne, Daniella Géo, Tijs Lammar and art platform Gevaertsdreef01.

KNAP Architecten from Ronse takes care of the scenography with Anke Vandemeulebroeke, Marieke Fortuin and Charlotte Van Damme. Every year there are five editions of Salon des Artistes, each in a special location. For Salon des Artistes - Summer 2020, we exceptionally have 2 unique locations. The old post office at Grote Markt 22 in Ronse and the old urban swimming pool at Engelsenlaan (over Aldi) in Ronse. There is a distance of less than a kilometer between both locations. The old post office (which is offered for sale by BPost Real Estate) has been completely dismantled from its counters. While the old urban swimming pool (construction of which was started exactly 50 years ago in 1970), which has only been closed for a year, will function in its original state. With the exception of the swimming bowl that is now empty. The 2 locations ensure that there is enough space to keep a distance between the visitors. The ground floor of the post building with unloading and loading zone has almost 800 m2. The pool is almost 2,000 m2 in size. Salon des Artistes - Summer 2020 will run from Sunday July 5 to Sunday August 30. The opening hours for both locations are every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 6pm. Entrance fee to visit both locations is € 10, children -18 years free. Subscribers to Kunstmagazine each receive 2 free entrance cards that are valid for both locations.

Artivirals 03/07/20 - 12/07/20

Under the title "Artivirals" an exhibition project is set up with visual art that is closely involved in the corona and quarantine issue. The theme is evoked from various angles, exposed and interpreted visually. This project is a realization with cooperation and in support of the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK).

 

with work by Jean Bilquin, Ulrike Bolenz, Jean De Groote, Etienne Desmet, Lode Laperre, Stéphanie Leblon, Renato Nicolodi, Guy Slabbinck, Hans Vandekerckhove, Paul Van Gysegem, Jonas Vansteenkiste, Danielle van Zadelhoff, Colin Waeghe, Peter Weidenbaum

Ménage à Deux, Curator Lut Maris

March 13, 2020

Ménage à deux combines collection pieces from Het Stadsmus with contemporary artworks. The result? A surprising dialogue.

Berlinde De Bruyckere, Koen Vanmechelen, Fred Eerdekens, Renato Nicolodi, Nick Ervinck, David Huycke, Stephanie Leblon, Rudi Knoops, Joke Raes, Mireille Robbe, Stefan Peters, Warner Berckmans, Stefan Annerel, Patrick Ceyssens, Peter Deleu, Lore Langendries, Jonas Vansteenkiste, 

Ick Reuvis, Kristof Vranken, Johan De Wit

 

In the exhibition you take a look behind the scenes. You explore ancient objects from the depot of Het Stadsmus. Pieces that have never before been seen in the museum have been carefully transferred to the museum and placed next to contemporary works of art by curator Lut Maris.

 

Although there is sometimes a time difference of a few centuries between the old objects and recent artworks, you soon notice connections and contrasts. Sometimes based on content, but also through the use of shape, color or technology. This not only changes your view of the objects, but also of the artworks. Is it a coincidence that the same visual language keeps popping up? It's up to you to think or debate further about this.

 

Ménage à deux, an exhibition by Het Stadsmus, in collaboration with Lut Maris of Art Gallery De Mijlpaal, from 14 March to 24 May 2020

Heat/Energy

For humans, the mammal that does not have fur, three factors are necessary for survival: energy, water and heat. Without nutrition our body stops functioning, without water it dries out, without heat we freeze to death. We are a vulnerable animal species. Yet we have come to master the planet in good and evil. One explanation is that this happened because of our useful thumbs, another that our brain capacity dropped. It is undeniable that our ability to communicate, collaborate and create effective societies (as do the ants and other social beings) is unmistakable. Many claim that our strong tendency to create non-material values: religious communities, literatures and artistic traditions is a factor that has been crucial in the history of the family.

Energy, water and heat. The three things were at the center of Kummelholmen's operations until 1997, when the building was taken out of use as an oil-fired hot-water center, supplier of hot water and energy to the surrounding Springberg. Since the architecturally powerful and K-marked concrete box was re-commissioned in 2013, it has become a center for less tangible but equally noticeable processes: of the thermal plant has become an art hall, where no exhibited work can avoid entering into dialogue with the environment and there the room itself becomes an obvious part of the activities of the artists and curators and of the visitor's experience.

It is as a call to the chosen artists to rethink and reformulate both the character and history of the premises as to take the gigantic grip on reflecting on the role of culture in contemporary times as we chose the central concepts of heat and energy as the theme of the exhibition. . Here there are opportunities to relate to both technology history and architectural history, to raise issues of sustainability, resources and ecology, to discuss both aesthetic and social and philosophical problems in artistic form. Heat / energy: art in interaction with the environment, present in dialogue with modernism, intangible artistic values in contrast to a hardening and increasingly utility- and money-controlled social climate.

What is Kunst aanzet?

Do you also dream of a work of art at home? Or a unique design object with a story attached to it? With Kunst Aan Zet you can make that dream come true. Bringing art to your home is easier and cheaper than you think. A work of art does not have to be more expensive than a weekend in Barcelona. The Interest-free Art Loan gives you a boost. You can now pay for a work of art or unique design object by a Flemish or Brussels artist in installments. You can borrow and repay 500 to 7,000 euros interest-free up to 2 years

botaniek made possible by the intermediary of Arteconomy (project)

March 26, 2019

From a joint practice, Veerle Michiels & Jonas Vansteenkiste look for context-bound challenges. We start from the opportunities and limitations of a place and engage in a dialogue or search for activation. We are investigating a form that brings an immersive experience for visitors and users. Our intervention always aims at an active dialogue between spectator / user and creation. Veerle and Jonas enter into a dialogue with HANGAR K and make the proposal Botaniek.

 

Our proposal starts from the "relational aesthetics" of Nicolas Bourriaud in which cultural and social structures in which we live are examined by artists. The artwork 'materializes a relationship to the world'. In the relationships that are evoked in such settings, the participant is detached from usual cultural codes of conduct. Botaniek introduces atypical co-workers, as constructed identities in the form of herbal clusters with a virtual identity such as Valerie Aan and Bie Slook. Just like all other users, these new botanical employees demand their place in the co-workspace. " and regularly contact their colleagues.

In this way a "micro-utopia" is created, which enables employees to find other forms of interaction, commonality and even ways of working. These targeted activities are not intended to overthrow the prevailing logic, but rather to merge or contrast with it

 

botaniek: An introduction of creative starters with career opportunities. Co-workers who make the experience tangible and bring us into relation with the world.
