Unraveling Slowness is a group exhibition questioning the power of images and their correlation to the pace of time. With a focus on ‘slowness’, it explores how societies’ increasing speed affects individuals, both physically and mentally. Set within an art school, and at a time where students are preparing their final presentations, Unraveling slowness wants to create a vacuum within the Bijloke site, a black void in which time and space are altered and disentangled. Plunged into darkness, the Zwarte Zaal becomes a human archive of images, events, experiences and stories, standing for the space of memory itself.
Unraveling Slowness is the result of a collaboration between nine artists currently in residence at HISK and seven curators from the Curatorial Studies program of KASK. The exhibition features only works produced over the last two years, including 'Disarming Reality', an installation by Anaïs Chabeur; a selection of sculptures by Francesca Ferreri; Eva Giolo’s most recent film, 'Elisabeth' (working title); Liesbeth Henderickx’s sculpture 'A constant dropping wears away a stone'; Chloé Op de Beeck’s video installation 'MOV 0032'; Leander Schönweger’s architectural unit 'Option 378'; Sarah Smolder’s ongoing series of paintings 'A lost mirror'; and a multiple screen installation of Ingel Vaikla’s film 'Roosenberg'.
