TICK TACK (May, 2019) is a new destination for contemporary art in Antwerp. TT realizes, presents and promotes international exhibitions and video art screenings, complemented with publications and an extensive digital archive.
Housed in the brutalist complex ‘De Zonnewijzer’ (The Sundial), a 1955 key work by architect Léon Stynen, TICK TACK occupies a historic duplex at a vivid city intersection, facing the tram stop and landscape park 'De Harmonie'. The 6-meter-high window functions as an interface between artists and audience, and between private and public space.
The TICK TACK program is dual. By day, TT presents exhibitions, at sunset, the window transforms into a projection screen under the name CINEMA TICK TACK. CTT is a new and exclusive platform for moving image works. Reaching numerous of passersby and commuters on a daily basis, CTT serves as a channel, stimulating a connection in its urban setting.
As a result, both day and night, TT constantly challenges the physical and mental boundaries between inside and out.
