‘Shapes, Shifts & Sheeps’
Amongst three “legs” of loosely divided categorical presentation, students at MFA AKV St Joost present an ever-shifting exhibition of works, mini-symposia, performances, and film. A raised stage will serve as a representation of a gallery space itself, merging wall, pedestal, table, and floor into one.
The stage serves as a platform of presentation, a place for collaboration, and discourse – a comfortable environment for socializing…a home, your home – and a revolving door open to outside contributors and collaborations. Within overlapping three-day increments or “legs,” which constitute larger conceptual frames – the white cube, theory, and performance – there is a daily changing display of works and proposals by the nine participants. Each transition of a “leg” is not necessarily divisive, but in dialogue with the one previous and the next to come, where the framework is not rigid, but flexing, breathing, in motion.
