Is what we see really what it seems? In BOGUS I, four large-scale inflatables appear and disappear, like a jack-in-the-box. They are the ghost of growth, industry, entertainment and destruction. The performative scenography for a disappearing humanity, and the traces that remain.
The sculptures in the series ENTITIES are performative machines, objects that move by virtue of their own independent energy source. They perform without any interaction or connection with people. These autonomous mobiles are powered by solar, wind or residual heat energy and follow the rhythm of the natural element that sets them in motion.
What's in an artwork? is the third in the series of HISK alumni exhibitions and highlights the versatility and diversity of the alumni. Curator Bert Ghysels titles the exhibition What's in an artwork? in analogy with the expression 'what's in a name'.
