the black box has become a black canvas for Merlyn's words

some words to explain or not

read + look

word/sound rhetoric meaning basic shaped words

ABSTRACTION the material application is METHODICAL

not lyrical CONTENT looking is reading TRANSITION

critique/irony INDUSTRIAL products used in

house-painting decoration and publicity reflect

the real world they are easy at hand FORMAL

reading is looking CODE the PLASTIC quality of

the glossy surfaces carries rhetoric it shines is fragile

and polluting  MORAL positive/negative

ANTWERP ART BOX 02 with architect HANS MAES

 [ till 19|02|2021 ]

"The installation transforms the store window into a big viewing box.
It offers a glimpse of a space, playing with feelings like curiousness and expectation.

 

The work wants to investigate how the form of a space can offer a feeling of homeliness: how it triggers longing for knowing what goes on behind the scenes ..."

ANTWERP ART BOX

a temporary art space project
using empty store windows throughout Antwerp


currently at hopland 47, 2000 antwerpen
but  i would love to 'export' it to other empty 'boxes'

bringing art and some light into the city with limited means

my art sometimes, but i also invite artists, photographers, architects, ...
anybody with a good idea for presenting their art or making an art intervention


walk, ride or drive by
the lights are on till about 24.00
and there's good coffee on the corner 

big thanks to sprookjes.eu for letting me use this space
check out #nosuchthingasstraightline to see the rest of the store
