Here Instead of Around
24.06.2022–26.06.2022

Hosted by Sint Lucas Antwerpen

dear carpet, take me with you
as time is a flat circle, and I am here instead of around, talking to my cat
riding on the mycelial net, which is my body, inside my mind
no borders, just transitory objects, national baggage, floating through virtual spaces
as I lead the masked parade from the centre to the periphery
through our successes and the failings, we thank you for your approach and consideration

We are an international group of ten artist-researchers who have gathered into a cohort in Sint Lucas Antwerpen’s 2021 Advanced Masters of Research in Art and Design program. Our diverse practices span visual art, performance and design, and are anchored in our social-political contexts. We have spent the past year exchanging ideas and developing critical, collaborative and complex conversations and methodologies.

We will be taking over the refectory space at MORPHO from 24 to 26 June 2022. We will use this communal space as a temporary open studio, in which we will share our research processes and experiments. Visitors are invited to workshops, performances, a book release and guided tours through our questions, challenges and thoughts.

We have been awarded a collective residency at Frans Masereel Centrum in the fall of 2022. In order to financially support the residency, we have curated a small shop that will be open for the weekend. Bring cash!

The weekend event will conclude with a finissage on Sunday afternoon, celebrated with cheers, drinks and high spirits.
