Bedeutungsgeflecht 2021


https://bedeutungsgeflecht.cargo.site


Bedeutungsgeflecht is a curatorial project conceived in the framework of Cultures of the Curatorial programme at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. The project consists of multiple books in a modular open-source format that can be merged together as interleaved books.


The project aims at questioning narrative book structures, the position of author, reader and subject, and seeks to experiment with the medium of a book as a curatorial and inspirational device. It cuts loose from authorial or unambiguous curatorial intentions and underlines the importance of gaps in between the material and the attempts to stitch them together.

Nomansland, 2019


Nova Artspace Weimar

Artist: Anne Heilmann, Masami Saito and Kathy Schubert

Curators: Sarah Eder & Jeroen Cavents

Photographs: Samuel Solazzo


Nomansland is an interdisciplinary exhibition that deals with themes of transition, communication and physicality in the form of sculptures, installations and drawings.

What is the connection between internal physical and psychological processes and how can these be materialized? How can we document an experience so that it leads to a re-experienceable result? Nomansland questions the grey zone between mental and physical space as a nomadic existence; the intermediate space that can be conquered by our minds.

Potential Space, 2019

Bauhaus-Universität Weimar

Curated by Jeroen Cavents


Given that space is a manifestation of everything and emptiness is nothing, everything is the antonym of nothing. Space is defined by a continuous area of expanse which is free, available or unoccupied. Therefore, nothing or emptiness is an unavailable and inaccessible area defined by borders.

A border is a space separating two areas, a space in between seen and unseen, knowing and not knowing. It functions as a stimulant for interpretation or completion. The border in itself is therefore also a space, moreover, a potential space for psychological reconsideration of its own limits.

Multiplied, 2017


De Apotheek, Antwerp

Curator: Susan Kuijpers

With the support of VZW Catharsis & De Apotheek


Multiplied provided a platform for young artists to exhibit and distribute multiples of various shapes and sizes in a limitless way. The focus of this project was the concept of a multiple as a democratic medium to spread the ideas and images of the artist rather than being an economic resource.
The artists for this exhibition were selected through an open call, the main criteria for this selection were a DIY attitude and the motivation to distribute their artwork to a wide audience. De Apotheek was a pop-up artist-run art space and a non-profit organisation in a vacant pharmacy for young artists and initiators. The exhibition resulted in an active, transgressive, lo-fi group show augmented with lectures, artist talks and performances throughout the course of one week as part of Antwerp Art Weekend 2017.

Artrave, 2015 & 2016


Kavka & Het Bos, Antwerp

Curator: VZW Catharsis


An event organised by vzw Catharis which combined visual art, music, performances and poetry. Apart from listening to live music and spoken word, the event space was wrapped in paper on which the visitors could paint, draw and write alongside established and beginning visual artists. The result of the event was afterwards exhibited as a collective artwork. The event brought people in an easily accessible way in contact with art
and each other questioning the borders between artist and public, and arts ephemeral status.

Potenco, 2017


Oude Beurs, Antwerp

Artists: Jivan van der Ende, Jasmin van der Rauwelaert & Jeroen Cavents

Curator: VZW Catharsis


For the project Potenco, Catharsis VZW carried out a neighbourhood survey about certain place-specific related topics. Based on the responses of this survey, we collaborated with a philosopher to compose philosophical questions about themes such as gender, safety, adulthood, immigration and privacy. We incorporated these questions in a  playful game that we played with children at certain playgrounds in this neighbourhood. The interaction with the children as well as their responses to these questions were recorded on video. We selected three visual artists who made artwork based on this input. The artworks were integrated together with the video material into an exposition. Concludingly we invited school groups around the same age as the interviewed children and gave them a guided tour of the exhibition stimulating them to reflect on the artworks.
