Opening Aglaia Konrad
Das Haus (ausgestellt)

The new film, Das Haus, brings the exhibition full circle. The work is part of a 16mm film series, Concrete and Samples, through which Aglaia Konrad continues to deepen her cinematic investigation of sculptural architecture.

The new film was shot in the home of Van Wassenhove, designed by architect Julian Lampens in Sint-Martens-Latem. The artist explores the possibilities of the film medium, going beyond a purely documentary record, generating a sensory, at times even sensual architectural experience. Das Haus transcends mere filming, thanks to an engaging editing of the delicate camera work.

Das Haus is to be premiered in Netwerk as a spatial installation as part of a solo presentation. The exhibition architecture is designed by the artist in close collaboration with architect Kris Kimpe. On Sunday, April 6th, the film will have a first screening at the Courtisane Festival in Ghent (cinema Sphinx).

The film was produced by Auguste Orts, in co -production with Courtesan, supported by Flanders Audiovisual Fund, Netwerk / Centre for Contemporary Art, Ghent University (Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, Department of Communications, Department of Facilities Office), LUCA Sint-Lukas Brussels, Foundation Juliaan Lampens, Fotohof Salzburg and Province of East Flanders.

Opening Marc De Blieck

With the photo exhibition Standards, Marc De Blieck shows a selection of images he has made over the years. Within the conventions of the genre, he presents himself as an executor of a collective directory, not as an “image author.” The locations that the pictures depict are of an institutional context: protected monuments and landscapes and objects in museums. The photographic positions do not reveal any new views or insights; the vantage points are not unique, nor critical. Diametrically opposed to the politics of digital imaging and, in an absurdly naive way, De Blieck symbolically positions a return to the old school photography.
