On thursdaynight 27 June as part of her exhibition What Enters artist Olga Balema will play an excerpt from the book À Rebours by J.K. Huysmans.
Written in 1884, it’s described as a “novel without a plot” and an ultimate example of “decadent literature”. It focuses on the intellectual and aesthetic contemplation of Des Esseintes, the last member of a once powerful and noble family.
Balema will give an introduction to the audiofragment and relate it to her work that is currently on show at 1646 until 13 July.
