44 | KINGS OF AFGHANISTAN - Pieter-Jan de Pue

During preparing and making his film The land of the Enlightened, PJ continued to take photographs. His photos are portraits of people and landscapes, as are his diary entries. A recurring theme in his huge admiration for the country, its spectacular landscape, and the resourceful children for whom survival became the art of living (DVDB)

There is always a playful tension in the work of Sanne de Wolf. The Belgian artist has a strong opinion about social issues and incorporates her personal opinion into her artistic work.

 

Intervention by Mekhitar Garabedian - fig. a, a comme alphabet

OPENING DRINK 20.09.2019 | 4-9 pm

This series of works is based on exercises made while learning the Armenian alphabet. The repeated letters form patterns which, while recognisable as signs, remain incomprehensible to non-Armenians. This documentation of a learning-moment relates to the loss of the mother tongue experienced through migration in general, and specifically by the Armenians living in the diaspora. Exile reduces the old language to a corpse. At the same time Garabedian is exploring the relation between signifiers and signified, comprehension and incomprehension.
