The Mothership is delighted to announce the opening of the exhibition by Alexey Shlyk and Ben Van den Berghe in collaboration with York Bing Oh (Atelier Oh). ‘Modular Models’ examines potential modes of exhibition making, thereby referencing the imaginative, sculptural and socio-cultural meanings of architectural models. Space and image have long been the defining parameters of Shlyk’s and Van den Berghe’s collaborative practice. ‘Modular Models’ introduces a new chapter in their research into the embodied experience of these two elements. With their modular building sets, they have not only devised a practical tool to envision transformative spatial installations, but also a triggering method to study and play with photographic architecture. Conceived as a work-in-progress residency, the exhibition invites visitors - over the course of an opening and closing weekend (4-5 Sept)- to activate and engage with the materials, opening up different perspectives and possibilities. In-situ interventions relate their ongoing work to the modular mechanics of the peculiar gallery space.
