TICK TACK is excited to announce AUTOPOIESIS, the inaugural Belgian solo exhibition of the renowned Amsterdam artist collective Metahaven. 

Autopoiesis, a concept introduced in 1972 by the Chilean evolutionary biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela, describes the notion of “self-creation.” The exhibition encompasses films and tactile textile works, highlighting a constant interconnectedness between cognition and feeling.
By combining digital aesthetics with weaving and embroidery, narrative and craftspersonship, the textile works—some of which were made especially for the exhibition—challenge boundaries between the virtual and the tangible, between modes of experience, whilst the film works provide their cinematic timebase.

Founded in the late 2000s by Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden, Metahaven are known for their interdisciplinary approach to art, filmmaking, design, and research. Through their pioneering, yet subtle future-forward practice, they explore uncharted and undeclared visual culture, being one of this domain’s most compelling voices.
Metahaven has established a remarkable presence with solo exhibitions at ICA, London; MoMA PS1, New York, Izolyatsia, Kyiv, State of Concept Athens, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, among others.
