Curated by Class of the 2022 Curatorial Studies postgraduate programme at KASK & Conservatorium in Ghent
ENTRANCE, a solo exhibition by Kristina Sedlerova Villanen, opens Bodies of Work, which will unfold in a series of exhibitions and events at Kunsthal Extra City from May 26 till August 28, 2022.
Kristina Sedlerova Villanen refers to the architectural heritage of Kunsthal Extra City's chapel by creating a site specific installation. The neo-archeological grounds will be infused with remnants of earthly materials, leftovers, and traces of human consumption. Sedlerova Villanen’s bodily impulsive gestures become incorporated in the space, where loops of time make the past overlap with the future. The artist questions the position of humans in situations of suspension by intuitive means and searches for a common language of communication.
The curators of the exhibition: Natalia Barczyńska and Amanda Hakoköngäs.
The exhibition is supported by Frame Contemporary Art Finland and Sale di Sicilia.
OPENING: Thursday 26 May from 17:00 till 23:00
(coincides with the opening of Antwerp Art Weekend)
