20.12.2018–29.12.2018 TEN SLOTTE 3: Margarita Maximova Het Bos

Margarita Maximova

De Imagerie, Het Bos and Escautville collaborate for a third year in a row to end the year in style. Ten Slotte 3 is a six-day audiovisual program that goes past the traditional boundaries of the rectangular screen. We go past the classic one-way relationship between audience and screen, to discover a wide range of moving images.

During Ten Slotte Margarita Maximova presents new work in the exhibition space of Het Bos. Free of entrance. Opening dates: 20-23 december and 27-29 december.

Margarita Maximova (º1990, Moscow, Russia) is a belgian-russian artist who got her masters degree in Fine Arts at Sint-Lucas Ghent. Her recent work revolves around ‘digital art’, based on the unending stream of images, opinions, answers and questions that we are exposed to online on a daily basis. Search engines have become an extension of our mind, for every question that pops up, an answer is within our reach, be it of a practical, psychological or emotional nature. A certain online use of language has become something habitual and recognisable. Margarita Maximova’s work responds and plays with this, until it gets turned around into something strange.


The opening will start at 19:00. At 20:30 a film by Clémence Hébert will be screened. After this Hiele Martens (Roman Hiele + Lieven Martens red.) give a performance.
