"Inauguration” - Saskia Holmkvist
performance

During the opening of “Nepotists, opportunists, freaks, friends and strangers, intersecting in the grey zone.” a new performance by Saskia Holmkvist will take place.

Cross meeting “now and me” - Pepa Ivanova
Performance and installation
text and interpolate folklore music

In “now and me”, Pepa Ivanova and Maria Lukova take the visitor on a 5-10 minute musical narrative in which an interactive light installation titled « sudden light boxes » is connected to the exhibition project “Nepotists, opportunists, freaks, friends and strangers, intersecting in the grey zone.” The language is Bulgarian.

Attempt for a 'Ritual of present' with personality forming elements, invoking the experience of сблъсък с нещо забавно и неочаквано ('collision with  something fun and unexpected'). 

We will tell a story about a reflected past into artistic present just by sounds  --  i приказки. И така... listen carefully, be present!


“SORRY CURATOR” - Annette Hollywood
video, 4min., colour, sound, 2008

 “SORRY CURATOR” is a hiphop battle between the artist and a curator, both parts played by Annette Hollywood: “Sorry curator, I never meant to hurt you, I never meant to make you cry, but tonight I’m cleaning out my concept.”

The video piece is shown on a portable DVD player during the opening of “Nepotists, opportunists, freaks, friends and strangers, intersecting in the grey zone.”

“Birdwatching Unfolded 2” - - Benjamin Vandewalle & Erki De Vries
Performance installation

Visual artist Erki De Vries and choreographer Benjamin Vandewalle share a fascination for everything that has to do with perception. The question as to how we perceive space around us and around our body, became the departure point for their installation performance Birdwatching, which premiered during Amperdans  on October 23, 2009. With the series Birdwatching Unfolded, De Vries en Vandewalle attempt to further develop the principles of their investigation that underpin their performance. With each instance, certain elements are isolated and placed in a new situation and context.

Large moving volumes will in Birdwatching Unfolded nr. 2  explore the gallery space and the spatial feeling created in this Z33.

 

“if you cross the line (R+V=J)” - Delphine Deguislage
spots, filters and tape, variabel dimensions, 2010

In this installation, the visitor is confronted with a barrier, which seemingly prevents him/her from crossing. However, if one wishes to continue the visit of the exhibition, one cannot but step into this space. The choice to step into the light places the visitor in the middle of a constellation that will challenge his/her understanding of a certain colour mixing. 

 

“don’t / BE HUMAN. A Recounting Exhibition” - radical_hope
5 title cards, 1 telephone, social act, 2010

Recounting Exhibitions are works that count on the artist and performer as much as on the visitor :
Only through getting in social contact the image will be/come more than what you see on the wall.
The visitor is invited to contact radical_hope via telephone to hear the story about the works that are only presented in the gallery space through their labels.

The first set-up of Recounting Exhibitions premieres in Z33 during the opening of “Nepotists, opportunists, freaks, friends and strangers, intersecting in the grey zone.” And stays until May 2, 2010.

With Heike Langsdorf, Gino Vandenborne and Florent Delval

 

“I WAS HERE”- Wannes Goetschalckx
Performance installation

Wannes Goetschalckx created for “Nepotists, opportunists, freaks, friends and strangers, intersecting in the grey zone” the new work “I WAS HERE”. An ambiguous message, as the writer wishes to stay anonymous while at the same time fixing his/her temporary presence.  

The title of the work is the departure point, both in terms of content and form. The known phrase that one comes across worldwide can be considered as one of the most original forms of graffiti. What it still has in common with the contemporary versions hereof, is that the only identifying part of what is left, is the handwriting itself. The words/signs are of secondary importance. This might be where the link could be situated with contemporary art. The question is not ‘what”, but rather ‘how’ and ‘why’. Although the message starts with “I”, the writer remains anonymous. It gives the reader an ambiguous feeling. On the one hand, the information is irrelevant; on the other hand it offers a new perspective on its context. These changing perspectives and the ambiguity of (not) wanting to be seen, are the research domains of Wannes Goetschalckx.
