Exhibition# 2 of 2 – Onomatopee Eindhoven
August 25 – October 30
Featuring artists Philippine Hoegen and Alex Farrar.
The exposition Being as becoming: liberating-art and/or liberating art is a collaboration between public gallery and publisher Onomatopee (Eindhoven) and artist-run space Bus Projects (Melbourne). The project integrates notions of ‘the contemporary’ and aims to assert the added qualities of artistic production in our life. Does art liberate and/or should it be liberated?
Being As Becoming asserts the qualities of artistic production in our lives. Onomatopee calls for an attribution of the momentum: a becoming through present knowledge and future possibilities within given circumstances which gives rise to an immediate and new being. This project challenges the situating of ‘contemporary-ness’ in the productive moment of creative and critical engagement.As all autonomous knowledge and experience gathered by Onomatopee over years expresses, the artistic profession can offer guidance through the natural dynamics inherent to our lives. By forefronting the responsibilities implicit in the creative and critical engagement autonomous and independent minds take on as professionals, we believe that we can offer a widening spirit to a culture that all too easily turns closed and static.To share in the experience of this dynamic quality, visitors can engage in an on-going and on-site correspondence with critics/lecturers. Caradt professor Sebastian Olma (writing from NL) and Johanna Drucker (writing from the US), have conversations at selected hours with the artists working on-site, get involved in production and conception and more. Featuring artists Philippine Hoegen
and Alex Farrar are available for conversations every Friday at 6 PM.
