Exhibition

BOB KIL:
BOB, BOB

In 2013, artist Bob Kil used the production budget for her solo exhibition at Objectif Exhibitions in Antwerp to fix the surface of the institution’s concrete floor, thereby creating ‘You owe me big time’ - a permanent artwork that outlasted both her exhibition and the institution itself.

At 2 p.m. on 25 May 2019, Kil will perform ‘bob bob’ in the courtyard garden of Kunsthal Gent, via an array of dispersed audio speakers.

Curator: Chris Fitzpatrick

Bob Kil recounts the form of a sleep journey in her performances. With pitfalls and peaks, her voice rises and falls at an unexpected pace. Bob Kil made her first public appearance at DRAF x O2 Forum 11th Evening of Performances, London, 2 October 2018. Bob Kil lives and works in Berlin.

Chris Fitzpatrick (b. 1978, US) was the director of Kunstverein München, in Munich, from 2015 to 2019. He was the director of Objectif Exhibitions, in Antwerp, from 2012 to 2015.
