Charlotte Stuby:
Keepsake

CHARLOTTE STUBY (CH)
Keepsake
Kunsthal Gent, 22/11/19 - ∞

Opening 22 november 2019
Muziekperformance 20.00 uur

Keepsake is een textielinstallatie van Charlotte Stuby, gemaakt voor Kunsthal Gent.

Charlotte Stuby's onderzoek naar textiel in stedelijke landschappen getuigt van een fascinatie voor de functionaliteit van textiel. Haar werk is een reactie op observaties en herinneringen, maar speelt ook met bestaande ideeën die verband houden met klassieke tapijten, zoals lay-out, schaal, kwetsbaarheid en vorm. Haar werk bevraagt het gangbare gebruik van symbolen en oriëntatiepunten, waarbij deze toe-eigeningen het onderwerp worden van nieuwe verhalen. Met "appliqué"-technieken en borduurwerk in primaire kleuren laat ze (niet-)verwijzingen en (niet-)figuratieve vormen overlappen en vormt deze elementen tot een verhalende compositie.

Met deze installatie wordt textiel een centraal element in de historische architectuur van Kunsthal Gent. Het wandkleed herdefinieert de ruimte door haar chronologie te herschikken. Het werk van Charlotte Stuby sluit aan bij de Endless Exhibition van Kunsthal Gent, waarin werken geen definitieve plaats hebben maar in de toekomst kunnen worden verplaatst of aangepast. Haar installatie is gemaakt om zowel binnen als buiten te kunnen worden geïnstalleerd, als een banier voor een steeds veranderende toekomst van Kunsthal Gent.

Charlotte Stuby (1989, CH) woont en werkt in Brussel. Na een bachelor in de beeldende kunst aan ECAL in Lausanne (CH) in 2013, vervolgde Stuby haar studies in België en behaalde ze in 2017 haar masterdiploma Textielontwerp aan de LUCA School of Arts in Gent.

Ze nam deel aan verschillende tentoonstellingen in Zwitserland (Pazioli, La Placette, Indiana) en in België: in Gent (019, Museum of Moving Practice), Brussel (Sagacity), Leuven (LUCA Biënnale). Haar boek Creature in Reality verscheen in 2018 bij Grafische Cel, LUCA School of Arts, Gent.
