BEN THORP BROWN:
THE ARCADIA CENTER #1

Kunsthal Gent presenteert een film en installatie uit Ben Thorp Brown's Arcadia Center in het Paviljoen, als proloog op een toevoeging aan de Endless Exhibition in het voorjaar van 2022.

The Arcadia Center is een organisatie die is ontstaan vanuit de missie om mensen te helpen om hun empathisch vermogen naar elkaar en de natuurlijke wereld te oefenen en verder te ontwikkelen. Bezoekers van The Arcadia Center worden uitgenodigd om zich onder te dompelen in deze parallelle wereld, een toevluchtsoord voor deze donkere tijden. In eerdere edities in Jeu de Paume, CAPC Bordeaux, en Museo Amparo werd het project geënsceneerd door middel van film, sculptuur, meubels, en geluidsinstallatie. Het is geïnspireerd op ideeën voor het bouwen van werelden, die variëren van modernistische architectuur, Romeinse mythologie tot sciencefiction-praktijken.

Het werk van Ben Thorp Brown (1983, US) onderzoekt de effecten van voortdurende economische, ecologische en technologische veranderingen. Hij werkt met video, sculptuur en installatie en zijn projecten worden vaak ontwikkeld in dialoog met specifieke architecturale sites en landschappen, die een decor worden voor een fictieve wereld.
