3 July, 2021 15:00 - 15:30

On Saturday 3 July at 15.00 hrs Zineb Seghrouchni will enter into conversation with Marleen Sleeuwits to further explore 'Isomatrix' and her other work. The conversation takes place outside on the ramp of the Kunsthal.

Am I looking at a photographic print, or is this part of the building? The installations of Marleen Sleeuwits (1980) blur the dividing lines between fiction and reality. Aided by bright neon lights, foil, photographic prints, and mirrors, she plays with perspective, reflection, and scale in architectural spaces. Examples of this are windows that continue beyond the ceiling, or the repetition of architectural details. It is her intention to temporarily alienate the visitors from their sense of time and location. Sleeuwits will be transforming the display window along the ramp into a spatial optical illusion for Kunsthal Light #24. She is inspired by the Kunsthal architecture that in her view contains elements of beauty and disorientation.

Participating in the Artist Talk is free.
