30 JAAR CROXHAPOX GENT

Onder de noemer THIR(S)TY THIR(S)TY viert kunstencentrum croxhapox haar 30ste verjaardag. Croxhapox wil vanuit een terugblik toekomstperspectieven ontwikkelen: 5 kunstenaars met een croxhapox-verleden worden uitgenodigd als gastcurator een presentatieproject te ontwikkelen, met een eigen selectie van kunstenaars bij 5 partners die de rol van host vervullen. THIR(S)TY THIR(S)TY#1: Looking at the letter A, samengesteld door Lore Smolders, gaat door in het Oud Huis van Kunsthal Gent.

“Voor ‘Looking at the letter A’ nodigde ik zeven andere kunstenaars vanuit een verwantschap die ik voel met hun artistieke taal en denken. Deze ontmoetingen brachten me ertoe te kijken naar de oorsprong en beginselen van het schrift. ‘Looking at the letter A’ refereert naar de A als adelaar in de Egyptische hiëroglyfen, de nauwe spanning tussen letter en teken, pictografische talen, het moment dat een taal ontcijferd wordt. ‘Looking at the letter A’ kijkt naar Broodthaers’ eindeloze spel met het alfabet en de adelaar die als een ongenuanceerd symbool opduikt.

In deze praktijken lees ik het tekenen als cryptisch schrijven en vise versa; het schrijven als tekenen, het schrijven als politieke handeling, het teken als poëtisch commentaar, het opzeggen als mantrisch gebaar, het leren van een taal, herhalen, krassen als didactische performance, uitvegen als herschrijven, symbolen, soms universeel gekend, soms onverstaanbaar.

Binnen de context van het Oud Huis in Kunsthal Gent, waar een 15de eeuws muurschildering bewaard wordt, brengt deze tentoonstelling historische en hedendaagse lagen samen.”
