Pay what you can

Kunsthal Gent presenteert:
Q&A met Elke van Kerckvoorde

Q&A met Elke van Kerckvoorde
vrijdag 25 oktober, 20:00

In oktober starten zowel Saddie Choua als Elke Van Kerckvoorde met een werkperiode in het ontwikkelingsprogramma van Kunsthal Gent. Op vrijdag 25 oktober gaat artistiek coördinator Danielle van Zuijlen in gesprek met Elke Van Kerckvoorde, over haar praktijk en plannen bij Kunsthal.

Elke Van Kerckvoorde (Gent 1992) studeerde aan Luca School of Arts te Gent (Master Beeldende Kunst 2014). Binnen het ontwikkelingsprogramma van Kunsthal Gent werkt ze aan een project op de grens van beeldende kunst, grafisch ontwerp en ambacht, in samenwerking met glas in lood-atelier Mestdagh en met verschillende kunstenaars en ontwerpers. Albert Mestdagh, oprichter van het glasatelier, leerde het vak in het Patershol, om de hoek van het voormalige klooster waar Kunsthal Gent gevestigd is. In 1947 startte hij zijn eigen atelier, dat verschillende generaties verder sinds kort gevestigd is in Merelbeke onder leiding van kleindochter Katrien Mestdagh. Van Kerckvoorde, aanvankelijk schilder, gebruikt in haar werk uiteenlopende grafische technieken. Ze duwt het grafische ambacht steeds verder weg van haar oorspronkelijke definitie en maakt zo de grens tussen beeldende kunst en ambacht diffuus.


SELECTIE ONTWIKKELINGSPROGRAMMA 2019-2020
Dit voorjaar lanceerde Kunsthal Gent een open call, voor zes kunstenaars, collectieven of samenwerkingsinitiatieven die in 2019-2020 een werkperiode met beurs krijgen aangeboden. Uit meer dan 250 inzendingen selecteerde een jury (de artistiek coördinatoren samen met vertegenwoordigers van structurele partners van Kunsthal Gent en kunstenaars die deze zomer deel uitmaken van het programma) zes kunstenaars en collectieven die in het komende jaar in Kunsthal Gent te gast zijn:

Saddie Choua (Brussel)
Elke Van Kerckvoorde (Gent)
Post Collective (Gent)
Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee (Amsterdam)
Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion (Parijs)
Younes Baba-Ali (Brussel)
