(UN)COMMON GROUNDS - 14.05 - 29.05
#StijnWybouw’s practice includes music and visual elements stretched through experimental situations and modalities.
His performance and installation “Tot de kaars uit is” (“Until the candle goes out”) is an endurance test as well as an almost spiritual pursuit conducted through singing and playing.
You can watch the performance during the opening of “(un)common grounds” at iMAL on May 14th.

Céline Vahsen got creative with us for a residency in the framework of our IPO (iMAL Projects Office) the last few weeks.
With a contemporary approach, she explored techniques that are rooted in ancestral textile creation. The research she started at iMAL involves the development of textile techniques, manual weaving and dyeing, enhanced by industrial input.

Tomorrow marks the opening of TECHNO ROMANCE: Data, Dating, Desire in the framework of Electron Festival in Genève. Might sound a little familiar, as this is a new iteration of the exhibition curated by Valentina Peri that we presented last year at iMAL. Head on down if you are in Genève!
