EXHIBITION booking required
How can you make each other, the exhibition space and the viewer part of the work? At If we propose you are invited the search for this rapprochement is central. An open attitude in which the invitation to become part of each other’s research and/or creative process is present and self-evident. The exhibition space and the spectators are changeable elements to which the group relates.
The emphasis is placed on questioning an architecture or structure of a physical or non-physical space, in which one looks at how each individual and within the whole can exist. Philosophizing about these spaces repeatedly raises the question of usability in the exhibitions and show moments of our group. An open source mentality is used as a frame of thought to ask questions about responsibility, visibility and the role of both the spectator and the maker in the creation and presentation of the work.
As a group we invite the spectator within this exhibition. The focus is on the possible expectations a spectator has and we look for ways to play with these expectations. By means of a theater, a live stream, an outlet and a fixed exhibition, the spectator should have an active attitude to participate in everyone’s research.
The routing of If we propose you are invited determines how the spectator moves through the space. The exhibition is divided into different spaces in which works are brought together. These spaces and atmospheres are represented in a suggestive way by means of props, characters and demarcations such as walls, curtains, carpets and ceilings. Not all spaces are demarcated, some boundaries only exist invisibly. The attendant, played by actors, behave differently in every room. In this way, the attendant can be an informative accompanist or not, and in this way take up a prominent position.
If you want to visit this exhibition, you are required to book a time slot prior to your visit to limit the number of visitors. Within your chosen time slot you can visit all four exhibitions in Belcrum area.
