Peter Kubelka Presents: Bread, Butter and Other Metaphors
"Objects of art may be edible, like a buttered slice of bread or they may be inedible, like ordinary sculpture." Avant-garde monument Peter Kubelka has collected thousands of ethnographic objects which he uses in his lectures on issues such as “what is cinema” and “cooking as an art form” to illustrate the evolution of craft, thought and communication.
He sees his ongoing collecting as an expanded film practice that explores the evolution of humanity. Kubelka will personally present a selection of objects from his museum, objects not imprisoned behind glass but open for tactile investigation. Particular combinations of objects – material metaphors – provoke further insights. While enjoying Kubelka's butterbrot, every visitor is enabled to read nonverbal narratives. The perception of film is turned into an active experience involving all the senses. A video by Luise Kubelka/Cibulka shows Peter Kubelka at the Vrielynck collection, encountering a Lumière camera/projector.Thu 26 Jan to Sat 4 Feb, 11:00-20:30, Het Atelier, free admission, performance by Peter Kubelka on Mon 30 Jan, 17:00.
