The world line of an object is the path that it traces in 4-dimensional spacetime through a series of spacetime events corresponding to the history of said object.
HISK’s artists in residency come from a plethora of cultural environments through which they have formed distinctive trajectories, practices and methodologies. While each artist draws particular world lines and curves in spacetime before and throughout their residency, gravity infers mutual influences of worldlines that can be reciprocally modified by the shared events they experience. During the course of their journey at HISK, many occasions prove the opportunity to explore simultaneity and difference. Therefore, the exhibition is not structured by a theme that would try to incorporate heterogeneous works but it proposes a metaphor borrowed from astrophysics allowing to underline the way in which some significant sensitive fields of at-traction (that are the ecological, ontological, psychological, social, identity and political crises) can be able to influence the trajectories of the works without absorbing them.
Held during Art Brussels and marking the second meeting point of the 11 worldlines for an exhibition, this event showcases performances, installations, sculptures, pictures and a series of editions commissioned by HISK.
