I contain multitudes
I contain multitudes is a group exhibition which
presents work of Alexis Blake (US/NL), Jane
Coppin (BE), gerlach en koop (NL) and Raphael
Malfliet/ Todd Neufeld/ Carlo Costa (BE/US).
Although the idea of a ‘true’ meaning in an
artwork is most often questioned in contemporary exhibition-making, it is a premise that
is difficult to renounce. What if every claim
of universality of significance and of messaging through artworks is truly excluded? The
more we look, the more we start wandering in
a state of doubt and indeterminacy. Nevertheless, this state of confusion can evoke productivity and imagination whereby a multiplicity
of interpretations can unfold. In contrast, the
potential of this multiplicity is often nullified by
resorting to a ‘comfort blanket’ of expertise
or authority. I contain multitudes regards this
complexity and builds up an attitude in the
ambivalence between knowing and not-knowing, showing and not-showing, in an attempt
to comprise the endless potential of different
interpretations. The exhibition takes place
at Yurt: Nomadic Project Space (Kortrijksepoortstraat 21, Ghent) and Het Paviljoen (Louis
Pasteurlaan 2, Ghent) from the 24th until the
26th of June 2016.
Raphael Malfliet/ Todd Neufeld/ Carlo Costa
This experimental music trio creates soundscapes in which free improvisation and
composed music are combined. Using a
mixture of graphic scores and classical
notation-systems, their music emerges from
a variety of interpretations.
Alexis Blake (US/NL)
Alexis Blake has a multidisciplinary practice
that combines visual art and performance
through various methods of translation such
as: choreography, sculpture, video, text and/or
script. In doing so she explores the language
of movement, exposes systems of representation and aims to reformulate the relationship
between the object and the subject.
gerlach en koop (NL)
The works of gerlach en koop consist of small
gestures that are situated in the area of tension between presence and absence. Their
work is characterised by repetition and copy,
reuse and appropriation, placement and displacement, deceive, trial and error.
Jane Coppin (BE)
The work of Jane Coppin consists of sound
installations, performance and video, in which
she focuses on movement by repeating
repetitive gestures and actions like counting,
walking and drawing. Her work has a minimal
character and mostly exists of herself as the
performer and some speakers.
