Over deze activiteit

35 SYNONYMS FOR 'HAMMERED INTO' AND A FAMILY PACK OF YOKES, ONE PUDDLE, ONE DRINK, AND A FIRM PROMISE OF FUTURE SCHEMES" is the first solo exhibition by Stefaan Dheedene (°1975 Kortrijk (BE) who lives and works in Ghent (BE). Stefaan Dheedene's sculptural 'situations' arise from an artistic process in which the artist uses, imitates, recombines or transforms everyday objects into new forms and connections. His specific interest in 'the aesthetic and political relationship between forms' is mainly expressed in installations and sculptures. During the opening of Antwerp Art weekend (13 May) of this new show, the loan will end and each hammer or yoke will be returned to its original frame or stand. The upcoming show is the conclusion and relocation of a previous show that was loaned out to its visitors for a year. The previous show in Yuri G. Gallery in Antwerp displayed a total of 35 hammers in varying combinations of lengths, weights, heads and handles, and arranged in 9 wooden frames. Additionally, a total of 9 yokes in three variations, were displayed together on a stand. The hammers and the yokes were loaned out to those who visited the show, resulting in an exhibition of empty frames and gaps. They served as a promise to meet at a future date, when the hammers would be returned. The current show will include additional hammers, one puddle, one drink and a firm promise of future schemes. A publication will be available as a report of the performance. The opening of the exhibition "35 SYNONYMS FOR 'HAMMERED INTO' AND A FAMILY PACK OF YOKES, ONE PUDDLE, ONE DRINK, AND A FIRM PROMISE OF FUTURE SCHEMES" during Antwerp Art Weekend will be also a performance since the previous owners of the hammers and yokes will return them to the original status quo at the gallery. This event will give a particular dynamic at the opening weekend. Please mail or give a call to tell us you are attending the opening. With the support of the Flemish Government.
