The Royal Academy of Fine Arts invited 'Forbidden City' and 'De Efemeren' for a project during Antwerp Art Weekend. Both artists' collectives include students, alumni and teachers.
Corona decided differently, they are happy to show and share their projects behind their windows and in online presentations.
(L'Affiche Souple) by research collective De Efemeren at De Kroeg, Wolstraat 46, Antwerpen
De Efemeren question the individual status of the artist. Does the artist's identity remain legible after the transformation and deconstruction of his original works of art? This collective fits into the research project ‘The Flexible Ephemerality of Sculpture’ by Nicolas Baeyens, a research recently completed at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp.
In quarantine time, a part of the Efemeren, Karolien Hamers, Denie Put, Gaspard Joarlette, Filip Collin, Jeroen Bocken, Iljen Put and Amber Andrews will make a collective collage that consists out of more than 2000 prints on the windows of ‘De Kroeg’, from 14 till 17 May.
