The group exhibition “Anachronikos” circles around the idea of an entropic moment and a seemingly empty space of time – of reduced significance and energy, faintly driven by inertia, mechanical repetition, and validity of routine. It is a feeling of saturation when things have to break in order to start reshaping. It is both a moment of excess when meaning is lost, and a moment of turning when it is made again. It is a state that resists fixity and confuses being behind and ahead of time.
By bringing together the work of five artists – Chiara Camoni, Filip Cenek, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, KIWA, and Mercedes Mühleisen – an attempt is made at peeking through the hole within the fabric of vacuity. In these works, the methods of repetition, automatism and appropriation are exercised to a point when our comprehension is suspended. In this pause, we linger.
On the opening night artist Koenraad Dedobbeleer will give the lecture-performance Language Is Not Anywhere Near the Origin of Consciousness which will reread some of the canons within the historiography of art.
