ENTRANCE, a solo exhibition by Kristina Sedlerova Villanen, opens Bodies of Work, which will unfold in a series of exhibitions and events at Kunsthal Extra City from 26 May till 12 June 2022.
Kristina Sedlerova Villanen refers to the architectural heritage of Kunsthal Extra City's chapel by creating a site specific installation. The neo-archeological grounds will be infused with remnants of earthly materials, leftovers, and traces of human consumption. Sedlerova Villanen’s bodily impulsive gestures become incorporated in the space, where loops of time make the past overlap with the future. The artist questions the position of humans in situations of suspension by intuitive means and searches for a common language of communication.
Exploring the forms of collective curatorial practice, a group of 12 students of Curatorial Studies at KASK are founding Bodies of Work – an institutional body with a lifespan of three months, facilitating a program of exhibitions and events, while residing at the chapel of Kunsthal Extra City in the summer of 2022.
OPENING: Thursday 26 May from 17:00 till 23:00
(coincides with the opening of Antwerp Art Weekend)
