Care for a walk with an artwork?

Pay what you can

Gentse Feesten in Kunsthal Gent:
Performance Apparatus 22 'The Elastic Test'

The Elastic Test - a performance by Apparatus 22 (RO/BE)

Care for a walk with an artwork? Join The Elastic Test!

The Elastic Test is a walking-performance in which you carry the artwork Infinite Contradictions through the city. Together with two other participants, you negotiate in silence the course and movements of the leather flag from one street to the next...

Infinite Contradictions is about believing in multiplicity, in divergent perspectives that can cohabitate. It is about the other being in the same time and in the same place with us - in fact the other is an extension of us not an opposite -. The flag is very much about trying to grasp and sort paradoxes of contemporary society by being together.

Apparatus 22 (RO/BE) is a transdisciplinary art collective in residence in The Development Programme at Kunsthal Gent. During the Gentse Feesten they will perform for four days, five times a day, on 25, 26, 27 and 28 July, at 11:00 a.m., 1:00, 3:00, 5:00 and 7:00 p.m.
