Thomas Min & Egon van Herreweghe:
Time to get in shape

On Thursday 28 March, Thomas Min & Egon Van Herreweghe organize a live stream film screening about Muscle Beach, of which they have recreated the fence in the Kunsthal Ghent.

The images are streamed from Venice Beach (Los Angeles, CA) and edited live. By zooming in on Muscle Beach they teleport the art lovers and curious viewers to the West Coast of the US to shed light on the contrast between the two locations. Because while we finish the day, Venice Beach is still shining in the sun.

Three years ago Thomas Min & Egon Van Herreweghe already had the fence of Muscle Beach in sight. At that time they could not have predicted that they would recreate the installation in full scale 2019. The work can be seen in full at Kunsthal Ghent until the end of May. Afterwards, the artists will regularly cut out a piece and move it to private and public locations. But before the time comes, Min and Van Herreweghe want to zoom in on their "love at first sight".

The live stream film screening will take place on Thursday 28 March from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. and is freely accessible at all times. Address: Kunsthal Ghent, Lange Steenstraat 14, 9000 Ghent, www.kunsthal.gent
