‘Something is not quite right’ curated by Ana Sous
July 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - July 31, 2022 @ 6:00 pm
9 – 31 July 2022
OPENING: 8 July 2022, 6 PM.
We are happy to announce the final exhibition of ‘Art through the Window’, project initiated by The Artist and the Others.
‘Something is not quite right’, curated by guest curator Ana Sous, will be running from the 9th to the 31st of July 2022.
Drawing connections between global situations, politics, and personal experiences, how can we question our reality, and be open to different ways of perceiving the world?
The exhibition circles around the sensation that what we perceive as true ‘is never quite right’. There are infinite ways of understanding reality. According to curator Ana Sous, we may or may not be aware of this, but each truth is as valid as our own experience.
The exhibition features the work of Amber Lalieu, Flora Lemmens, Marie-Claire Krell & Joep Caenen – who will especially create a ‘hut’, a setting built in-situ with which visitors will be able to interact directly.
In their artistic practice, the artists explore different ways in which we can perceive the world, reflecting this perspective in their work. The aim is to invite visitors to wonder, question and consider different understandings, recognising the limits of perception.
In Europe, many teenagers and young adults have grown up with the feeling that they have always been threatened by something. However, this threat has always been difficult to grasp. Climate change, the limits of economic growth, unemployment and oversea wars are undeniable factors, but these aspects have always been seen as somewhat detached from our daily lives.
“(…) sudden acts of terror have burst into our consciousness with the global pandemic, the emerging far-right movement, and the war in Ukraine. The lingering terror laying in front of us hit us hard. The illusionary sense of peace collapsed, and the sense of unease felt by many over the past years manifested itself through concrete and inescapable events.
Greta Thunberg said “I want you to panic” three years ago. Maybe let’s try to look and question first.” – Curator Ana Sous.
