Homage to an Absent Pony

To mark the end of the exhibition B-SIDES & RARITIES, we would like to invite you to a lecture contribution by Toon Leën:

Homage to an Absent Pony

Looking at examples that range from religious iconography to images of war, this lecture performance investigates how we empathize with or through images. Is it the reality represented in the image, or the image itself that shapes the viewer’s empathic responses?

Duration: ca. 60 minutes
When: Saturday 29.04 - 16:00
Language: English

Toon Leën (1981) studied painting at Sint Lucas Antwerp. His work moves between painting, video, and lecture performance. Currently, he is a PhD candidate in artistic research at Hasselt University and PXL-MAD, School of Arts.
