Naar aanleiding van de tentoonstelling CENTER (PLURAL) van Vedran Kopljar bij Convent (t/m 13 december 2020) presenteert Convent in Kunsthal Gent de screening van Meeting Untitled, de eerste film van Kopljar.

Onder het mom van het Plank Communication Center peilt Kopljar naar wat het kan betekenen om zich langdurig te verhouden tot de karakteristieke ‘plankwerken’ van de Amerikaanse kunstenaar John McCracken. Aan de basis hiervan ligt Kopljar’s fascinatie voor de verschillende wijzen waarop er betekenis gegenereerd kan worden tussen kunstobject en kijker.

In mei 2019 kwam Kopljar voor de eerste keer fysiek in aanraking met een plank van McCracken. In het depot van S.M.A.K., het Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Gent, ontmoette hij de monochroom rode plank Center, uit 1989, uit de collectie van het museum. Later dat jaar trok Kopljar naar New York om daar de activiteiten van zijn artistiek onderzoekscentrum verder te zetten als artist in resident bij Residency Unlimited. Via de David Zwirner Gallery kreeg hij er toegang tot het archief van McCracken en ontmoette hij tevens twee van diens planken in de viewing room van de galerie. De film Meeting Untitled documenteert deze bijzondere gebeurtenis in New York, die gezien kan worden als een trage, intieme performance, waarin de kunstenaar, veelal in stilte, gewoonweg tijd doorbrengt met de werken van McCracken.

Vedran Kopljar, geboren in Slavonski Brod, Kroatië, woont en werkt in Antwerpen, waar hij in 2015 afstudeerde als master in de schilderkunst aan de Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten.

De tentoonstelling in Convent loopt nog tot en met 13 december en is iedere zondag te bezoeken tussen 14:00 -18:00u en op afspraak.
