Artist Talk by Anouk De Clercq

05.10.2021, 19:00 — 21:00 

Organised by Sint Lucas Antwerpen Research Group (SLARG) en Kunsthal Extra City

Artist Talk by Anouk De Clercq about the video OK (2021) that she made together with Helga Davis for the Radically Naive – Naively Radical exhibition at Kunsthal Extra City. Helga Davis and Anouk De Clercq collaborated on One (2020), a film as a 21st century protest song. On the request of Kunsthal Extra City, they discussed a follow-up piece, linked to the radical naivety of this exhibition’s title. After numerous intense discussions, the following statement by Davis proved decisive in what would follow: “I don’t have the luxury to be naive.” Out of friction regarding the themes of this exhibition arose OK, the first work co-signed by the artists. Central in this piece are text, voice, and intonation. OK scrutinizes the relations between Black and White, while searching for the essence of collaboration, radical empathy and caring about the other. De Clercq will show One (2020), We’ll find you when the sun goes black (2021) and OK (2021) and will elaborate on the thinking process behind her recent work.
