unravelings

Opening: July 25, 2-6 p.m.

And open daily from 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Closed on Mondays. from 24 July - 10 August 2020

Address: Verkortingstraat 11, 9040 Ghent, Belgium

This exhibit revolves around art, especially painting, looked at through the concept of deconstruction. We want to analyse the materials that are the building blocks on which painting exists and has existed for centuries but also the concept of painting itself. What is it and how does it give or create meaning? How complex is the meaning painting generates and can we even be sure of it?

Since Derrida used the notion of deconstruction in the 1970’s it has influenced and dominated art and literature. This exhibit will focus on what form deconstruction has taken today and what it means for contemporary artists and art.

Isolation | Communication

January 01, 2020

The main hall, Färgfabriken

Exhibition:
June 2 - 14, 2020 (no vernissage)
Opening hours 12 am - 4 pm 
NOTE: Closed on Monday, June 8 

In a densely populated world, the concept of isolation has suddenly become central. In Sweden we are encouraged to keep social distance, in other countries it is not allowed to gather in groups larger than two people. Without any habit of living in isolation, we must change our mind to keep ourselves within our own walls as much as possible and try to make life work anyway.

Isolation | Communication is an exhibition initiated by the curator group Muskot in collaboration with Färgfabriken, born out of the prevailing covid-19 epidemic. Tthe exhibitions gathered art through an Open Call. The work submited for assessment represent the participat's artistic / literary practice at this very moment, under the current extreme circumstances. Over 500 entries were submitted for evaluation, 110 of which are shown at Färgfabriken. In this manner isolation can be broken and communication be established.Alex Valijani

Ruins canceled because of the coronavirus

March 12, 2020

last year I won DE CURIEUZE COLLECTIE , Bruegle revisited. This gave me the opportunity to make a solo exhibition in the Drongenhof Chapel in Ghent.

Ruins starts from the site-specific context of the chapel, the earthen floor and the brutality of the walls reminded me of an archaeological site.

At the center of this exhibition I place the work "Callimachus" and will compile it as a site with debris of columns and bring it in combination with my work: A pile of homes.

the expo lasts until March 22.

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.

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.

"INSIDE / OUT" postponed because of the coronavirus

May 14, 2020

"INSIDE / OUT" is an art project that consists of a group of contemporary visual artists who get to work and exhibit in Borluut Castle and the Borluut Park in Sint-Denijs-Westrem.

 

"INSIDE / OUT" is a "reflection" by analogy with the work of the Van Eyck brothers. Each artist makes a direct or indirect link to the oeuvre of the Van Eyck brothers and the location through a work of art.

 

"INSIDE / OUT" is an experimental, multidisciplinary and artistic research project that originated within the walls of Borluut Castle. Elke Desutter, Free Pectoor and Brantt use a studio at that location. They complement each other and from their own discipline they form a strong front of artists, as well as curators of the project.

 

In view of the historical context, in particular the contacts of the Van Eyck brothers with the Borluut family, the location is an excellent opportunity to realize an art project dedicated to "Van Eyck". Elizabeth Borluut and Judocus Vijd are nml. the clients of "The Lamb of God", both are also depicted on this polyptych. In all likelihood, Simon Borluut (Elizabeth's brother) would also be the commissioner of the work "The Madonna at the fountain" (to be seen in the MSK Ghent, 01-02-20 / 30-04-20).

Kunst aanzet

November 23, 2019

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.
