A digital recording of the spoken title was stretched to match the duration of the exhibition’s opening hours.

Steve Van den Bosch (1975, BE) lives and works in Brussels and Antwerp, Belgium. His work has been described as balancing between invisibility and undeniable materiality. The often reduced appearance of his work is concerned with the artwork’s periphery. Not confined to any specific medium his practice focuses on the conditions that define (a) work and the often distorted outcomes of linear reasoning.

His work has been widely shown internationally at, a.o. : The Front Room, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, USA; Shanghai Biennale, CN; Kunsthalle Bern, CH; FormContent, London, UK and Witte de With, Rotterdam, NL.
