Intervention by Alec Mateo and Benjamin Schoonenberg

13 June 2021, 14:00-18:00
Free entrance, no reservation needed*

On Sunday 13 June, from 14:00 until 18:00, Alec Mateo and Benjamin Schoonenberg – students from the Sandberg Institute Critical Studies Department – will respond to Christine Moldrickx’ solo exhibition at the space by means of a site specific intervention.

The tightness of it. The spring is wound up, used up, becomes useless, becomes uselessly used. Like the exertion that brought us here. To images, repeated, pressed through the grid that surrounds them. They iterate, become together – become to be seen, watched (over) – silently. Yet something remains absent, quietly absent in abstraction, the body is pictured yet not felt, left out while present – an affective peculiarity.

Heat induces contractions and expansions depending on the material. Heat, as a confrontation with exhaustion emerges as a lack – a body part perpetually in pain. A bad debt we don’t intend to repay. The affective bodies, a physical sense of (lost) attention – the tightness of it. Wound up, used up. At once, exerted and exhausted.
