OFF Programme: Artist & curator-run spaces

Artist Club Coffre Fort

Opening on Fri 26 April from 7 pm till 10 pm

Marko Tadic
Artists Club Coffre Fort is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Marko Tadic in Brussels and a vault. Marko Tadic turns imagined spaces into objects by creating a fragmentary space in which its potential is merely implied. This approach is continuously present in Tadic’s works regardless of the medium he uses. The untold truths, implied endings and masked histories create new realities. By using artefacts of real places, he erases their identities by charting new ones, thus creating imaginary places and indicating unrealised potentials.
Curated by Artists Club Coffre Fort

Artist Residency Huet-Repolt

Place Oddity
This exhibition of the French artist Damien Dion is the result of a two-months residency at Artist Residency Huet-Repolt.

And because he did not want to play alone, he also invited other artists, transforming an initial solo display in a group show.

Ateliers Mommen

Opening on Tuesday 23 April from 6 pm to 10 pm 

Tell me more about you
Cité des artistes for a little over a century in Brussels, les "Ateliers Mommen" was founded by his patron Félix Mommen in 1894, trader and manufacturer of artistic materials. The purpose of Tell me more about you is to reveal alternative ways of thinking and communicating in echo of current society's crisis, and to, together with the public, restore and rebuild meaning where it has gone astray in market semiotics and take the initiative on reality... inside and outside of the most resistant artist's residency in Belgium.
Artists: Pauline Brun (création sonore Diane Blondeau et dramaturgie Valérie Castan), Paco Coopa, Lise Duclaux, Jérôme Porsperger, Anna Raimondo, Tatiana Wolska and all participants.
Curated by Maëlle Delaplanche and Tatiana Wolska

A Temporary Monument for Brussels

Philippe Van Snick: Brussel Pastel Bruxelles
A Temporary Monument for Brussels is a sequence of site-specific public art commissions reflecting on the historic concept of a monument. It takes the form of five large-scale banners on Place Sainctelette which are re-imagined by a different Brussels-based artist every quarter. Previous commissions include Aline Bouvy, Valérie Mannaerts and Sarah Margnetti.
A Temporary Monument for Brussels is a project by artlead.net, developed with the support of Brussels-Capital Region.

VALERIE SNOBECK
Valerie Snobeck’s exhibition reflects our culture's concerns and obsessions with environmental policy. She focuses on the framework that has built organisations such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., distilling the metaphysical anxieties of environmental responsibility into human scale artworks. Snobeck dissolves boundaries of distance between the body and the architecture built to shelter and isolate bodies from their surroundings. Shifts in the accessibility and permeability of these structures create a potential for lucid contemplation and a visionary breakthrough.

C5

Opening on Tue 23 April from 6 pm till 9 pm

Jean-Baptiste Bernadet & Eva Claus
C5 intends to grant its audience experiences which tear them away from the everyday, all the while placing their feet firmly on the ground. Perceive what is sacred, yet remain anchored. That is the only way for the sacred to remain what it is in essence: never wholly uncovered. This is a slither of light creeping in through a door left ajar.
Curated by Patrick Carpentier

COHERENT

Ghost Town
Ghost Town is a collaborative exhibition by Corey Bartle-Sanderson, Oliver Durcan and Steven Gee, the founders of UK curatorial collective, IKO (It’s Kind of Hard to Explain). The title references a song titled Ghost Town, originally produced by The Specials in 1981, then covered by Kode 9 & The Space Ape in 2009. The song narrates an apocalyptic urban culture where the youth have been ‘left on the shelf ’ and ‘all the clubs have been closed down’. 
This exhibition presents a parallel reality of today in Brussels, where COHERENT has closed and the building it occupies has been abandoned. Interventions and objects inside and outside the space take the form of artworks that camouflage into the environment, scenario and conditions set by the three artists. As a younger generation emerging into the industry, the project explores the functionality and the boundaries of permanent, physical spaces as a medium to present art. 
Artists: Corey Bartle-Sanderson, Oliver Durcan and Steven Gee

light matters
During her “light matters” research at Cunst-link, Pepa Ivanova plays with the intangible physicality of our realm. The interventions in and out of the exhibition space narrate personal experience through the flux of light reflections, refractions, and language.Time as a fluid substance measured by growth and presence is enhanced by objects and light in continued transition.

ALCHIMIA NOVA
The work of AnneMarie Maes makes the invisible visible. Her research has always been on the borderline between nature, art and science. She creates with a range of biological, digital and traditional media, including bacteria and other organisms. The choice of materials is a primary aspect of her artworks. The physical and aesthetic features of the materials she works with determine the forms of the individual sculptures, objects or textiles. Her artworks are appealing to touch and smell, but as well they attract the spectator in an aesthetic and visual way.

V2VINGT

I am not a ghost
For his exhibition in V2Vingt, Pieter Geenen continues his exploration of the photographic medium with a selection of images made around the closed Armenia-Turkey border. He presents fragments which, through their abstraction, challenge our relation with images and memory. Through his own association with time and duration, the artist further explores the physical space of the landscape, in connection with the notion of public space.
