+ Live performance > chocolate masking technique by Walt Van Beek
•• 1/07 19:00 – 21:00
Exhibition/work in progress June 14 > July 14
From deconstruction to re-construction, rebuilding of a known/outdoor object in an indoor space.
The object is shown in a new environment and it gains new meaning.
The original form is disguised, it may take an unrecognisable function and by doing so gives the viewer the possibility to remake the object according to her/his imagination.
The action consists of bringing a new layer to the object; hiding it by protecting the object is the conservation.
WVB wil show his layering methods through different phases.
During the performance the viewer will be able to see the object’s transformation.
Gläso arises from an intimate relation and a personal attraction; and is the love for a banned and lost object. It is an attempt to crystallize time by reversing the process, from stable to fluid in different circumstances which would then in principle evoke endless transparencies. Gläso is the existence of a project and a work in progress. Walt Van Beek, reverses the traditional working methods of an archaeologist by subverting his methods.
Mask versus performance, amusement, protection and concealment.
