The Ongoing Conversation #1.2

Cecilia Bengtsson: Disconnected Matter
an exhibition with Cecilia Bengtsson / Sharelly Emanuelson / Hannah Dawn Henderson / Annabel Kanaar / Quenton Miller / Sara Pape
A series of six one-day events in collaboration with the Master Artistic Research

The work in this solo exhibition is dealing with Metaxy – that which connects and separates at the same time. Be it the human body or the walls of the gallery this separation is what makes communication both possible and/or futile. The work seeks to highlight and explore this non-space by means of sculptures in the form of live actions performed during the evening. The work intends to evoke an awareness of the body as a still mysterious object and the voice as a possible bridge.

The exhibition includes an ongoing installation performance from 19h till 20h.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a guest lecture by composer Samuel Vriezen starting at 20.00.

The Ongoing Conversation offers a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions, conceived as a dialogue rather than a series of isolated events. During three weeks the exhibition spaces will become a stage for orchestrated ambiguity, paradox, spectatorship and theatricality. From Melville to Wikipedia, from post-colonial questions to universal issues as love and death; all of this will be explored and performed in six mini solo-exhibition events.
Featuring a range of international artists, each exhibition is complemented with an invited guest who will lecture, perform or participate.

This project is the outcome of a collaboration between 1646 and the Master Artistic Research, The Hague.

The Master Artistic Research is a postgraduate study for artists, based at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague.
