December 14 - Januari 20: Sofie Van de Velde
‘Pendant Pair’ is a duo exhibition by Tom Callemin (°1991, Ostend) and Anouk De Clercq (°1971, Ghent). In 2017 the two artists collaborated on the video ‘It’ and in 2018 they made the two-channel video ‘Pendant Pair’. In addition to these collaborative works, the exhibition shows photowork by Tom Callemin and the 16mm film ‘Atlas’ by Anouk De Clercq.
A clear similarity in the oeuvre of both artists is the play between darkness and light, and an attention for “slowness”, inviting the spectator to perceive time. Here, at the Antwerp Art pavillion, Callemin and De Clercq research and explore the boundaries of the medium of photography and film in the perspective of our zeitgeist.
Anouk De Clercq is a founding member of Auguste Orts and is represented by Gallery Sofie Van de Velde. Tom Callemin is represented by tegenboschvanvreden Amsterdam and Galerie Zink Waldkirchen.

September 7 - 30: Studio Start invited Stef Van Looveren
Stef Van Looveren's practice translates itself into video installation, performance and sculpture. He uses the installations as an attempt to reflect and dismantle the performativity of our human behaviour, primarily within the notion of gender. Playfully mimicking our social conducts along with visual culture, his work moves towards a surreal gesture.
At the Antwerp Art Pavilion he will present his new work 'DPA bags', A collection of functionless bags.
September 2: Studio Start and NICC
The Pavilion will be used as a central point of information for Open Studio's, accompanied by an exhibition with artists Michiel Albers, Kitty Kamp, Stef Van Looveren, Lore Van Roelen and Patries Wichers.
