Primary structures presents:
Primary talks - Aline Bouvy

13.00 #2 24/11 Aline Bouvy

PRIMARY TALKS is a lecture series initiated by the architecture masterstudio PRIMARY STRUCTURE.

Within the context of the studio we invite speakers form different disciplines who’s work is relevant within the theme. The focus of the lecture series is on the working method, the way the work comes to being.

This year's case study is about the future of the E17 viaduct in Ghent. This giant structure is a relict of the 70’s and severly damaged by heavy traffic. It is currently being restored for the last time. Recently 8 alternative scenario’s have been put forward for debate. Although the infrastructural interventions in the different scenarios have been calculated, the impact on the city and its urban tissue has not to yet been investigated. We will focus on the architectural and ecological potential of each of the scenario’s.

Aline Bouvy (°74), Artist

She uses a broad range of disciplines to explore practices of refusal in relation to conformity, adaptability, regulation and compromise. She runs counter to the sets of societal prerogatives that unknowingly shape one’s desires and that dictate what is morally and aesthetically acceptable. Through the implementation of poetic strategies and a rigorous aesthetic with engaged humor, she questions the hierarchies of established powers and patriarchal systems. Her practice strives to confront what is considered outside the norm, through narratives often rooted in the very context of the places where she presents her work, simultaneously questioning the role of the artist and their engagement through cultural productions.


PRIMARY TALKS will host three lectures.

13.00 #1 17/11 Christoph Fink

13.00 #2 24/11 Aline Bouvy

16.00 #3 13/01 T.O.P. Office

We close with a public event on 13/01 with the opening of an exhibition and a debate with Luc Deleu (Top Office) and Peter Vandenabeele (City Architect Ghent). The debate will be moderated by Carl Bourgeois (KU Leuven).

PRIMARY STRUCTURE is an initiative of GAFPA with the support of KU Leuven Faculteit architectuur campus Sint Lucas Gent.

The studio is led by Floris De Bruyn & Olivier Goethals.
