Scotomata

Visitors to Scotomata will discover Malevich’s continued influence. Now that image production has gone completely haywire due to digitisation, contemporary artists often decide to radically slow down the looking process. From blind spots to black squares: this exhibition brings together six visual artists who like to explore the boundaries of visibility. Maximum alertness for a minimum of stimuli. Thu 28 Jan - Sat 6 Feb, 11:00 - 18:00, Gallery JOEY RAMONE (Josephstraat 166), free admission. Opening: Thu 28 Jan, 18:00.

When, in 1915, Malevich presented a completely black square, this did not herald the end of art; on the contrary. He stated: "It is from nothing, into nothing, that the true movement of existence starts.” Visitors to Scotomata will discover this Russian suprematist’s continued influence. Now that image production has gone completely haywire due to digitisation, contemporary artists often decide to radically slow down the looking process. Maximum alertness for a minimum of stimuli.

The exhibition consists of the following works: Museum, Danmark (Marc De Blieck), Nanthanwan Temple - Master Duangkamol Jaikompan (Edith Dekyndt), Waiting for the Secret (Meggy Rustamova), Starscape, Djinn and Fake Reflection (Dominique Somers), The Light and the Paper (Sara Van Der Heide), Jardn Secrt (dans le desert) and United Colours (Various Artists).
