Zebrazaal, Z33, Zuivelmarkt 33, 3500 Hasselt (BE)
Opening times: 8 PM
Over the past decade, Jasper Rigole has established an artistic practice that departs from what he has called ‘other people’s memories’. These found ‘memory documents’, which Rigole collects and archives, form the basis for his movies and audio-visual installations, the interactive IICADOM website and performances. Family movies, postcards, lost puzzle pieces, orphaned family photographs and letters are recycled in a quirky way, categorised and linked together. Coincidence, association and serendipity play a major part in the development of Rigole’s work.
This A-Z lecture frames ’81 things I thought I’d forgotten’ in Rigole’s exhibition at Z33, where for the first time, the archive is presented to the public on a larger scale in all its facets, in combination with new and existing works. This solo presentation, along with a publication, is one of the results of Rigole’s completion of the doctorate of Arts at the School Of Arts, Gent (KASK), in which he examines his own practice in a broader context, from themes such as memory, remembrance, collecting, archiving and media archaeology.
A-Z lectures take place on Tuesday at Zebrazaal at Z33 (Zuivelmarkt 33, Hasselt).
Entrance: 5 euro (1 drink included). Students pay 3 euro when they show their student card.
