Casting a Shadow Wherever We Stand vol .2
Reeks | diverse tijden | De Vlugt
Following the first Casting a Shadow Wherever We Stand that took place last year, the second instalment of the exhibition continues to engage in the concept of the body both as physical and social means. While acknowledging the experience of the body as something individual, the exhibition pays attention to the significance of the physical body and its agency in relation to the kind of role it plays in one’s social experience and identity.
This exhibition presents works by four Amsterdam-based artists: Hee-Seung Choi, Josje Peters, Artémise Ploegaerts and Maia Elisabeth Sørensen. Their different approaches to the subject is manifested in various forms including video, painting, installation and performance. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of public programs such as dance film lab and film screening.
The exhibition is supported by AFK.
