Coppejans Gallery invites the Antwerp artist collective FAAR to think about the ideal gallery.
In response, FAAR suggests Larey G.’s Living Room ; A five-week sanctuary where the nouns artist, curator or gallery owner merge.
The starting point is the individuality that arises from everyone's practice; what we from there think, make, say, learn from each other and allow to happen. In the opening weekend, FAAR will turn Coppejans Gallery and Falconplein into a living room; a sculptural scenography as a planned living space. Over the next few weeks, FAAR welcomes thinkers and creators of what could be to shape their practice in Larey G.’s Living Room .
In Larey G's. Living Room, invites and casual guests can think in a free and tactile way about what a gallery could be. For example, it can be a sculpture in word and matter that will take a different shape depending on the participants and their reaction to what is given. FAAR provides the space with various supporting structures, which are offered to the guests as a basis and offer a concrete starting point, but an unprecedented outcome.
Before starting his gallery, Stijn Coppejans had 100 conversations to prepare himself. In these conversations, the function and form of a gallery was regularly questioned. The collaboration with FAAR can be seen as the start of a new research cycle after just under three years of gallery experience on the Falconplein.
