the living installation, entre quatro paredes, plays with intimacy, boundaries and borders by transporting itself through the public sphere by means of four interdisciplinary performers.

walls are no passive objects: as catalysts of change, walls actively reshape and restrict movement. acting as barriers, they can divide communities and isolate individuals, while also visibly and literally connecting strangers in intimate settings and serendipitous encounters.

simultaneously inclusive and excluding, occurring at a site and a “non-site,” entre quatro paredes transforms public spaces into immediate, private spaces within the context of four walls.

[using the complexity of global events as an occasion to gain more insight]

the impenetrable complexity of current global events often eludes an objective assessment. the attempt to gain a rational, factual insight into the interrelationships of world politics often leaves us in a state of exhaustion, confronting us with more and more questions the closer we examine them until we are often left with a complete loss of an overview as a result.

global events and global conflicts are carried out locally with their origins also often based in local events. on this basis, we seek to firstly explore the understanding of global contexts from a local perspective. we have invited five politically focused artists from different parts of the world to open conversation with us by using their work as a starting point. each artist has a local, source-based concentration in their work from which global contexts will be developed and examined. in five consecutive, individual presentations, we will get closer to each respective culture’s formative background and current conflicts with the help of each subject’s work as well as using excerpts from the respective body of work as a whole. conversations and public talks with the artists are the second step toward deepening and discovering the origins of local conflicts on global contexts.

addressing these approaches, kathryn gohmert (* 1983 / texas / usa) opens dialogue about both the perspectives and origins of american people regarding their relationship toward violence and weapons and the resulting position of the USA in world events with the mixed media installation, STATE[S] of PANIC, specifically created for this concept. david ashley kerr (* 1986 / victoria / aus) examines the effects of colonialism on modern australia using photography and video works. yang ming (* 1962 / fujian / chn) gives us insight into the current situation in china through a developed conversation. sandra monterroso (* 1974 / gtm) let us participate in her research about the influences of colonialism in the progressive decline of indigenous, south american cultures and till ansgar baumhauer (* 1972 / de) explains excerpts from historical contexts in the conflict between the west and the middle east in his work COLLATERAL DAMAGE (30+).


15.11 – 18.11:  yang ming [* 1962 / fujian / china]

the artist, yang ming, is a guest in weimar from the 15th until the 18th of nov, and will hold an interview with konstantin bayer, giving us an insight into the current situation in china on 17th of nov.

21.11 – 26.11  kathryn gohmert [* 1983 / texas / usa]

the artist, kathryn gohmert, will be presenting a mixed media installation, STATE[S] OF PANIC, opening on the 21st of nov at 7pm, as well involving us in an interactive game (11/23/2015, 7 pm), and a public discussion (11.25.2015, 7 pm).

27.11 – 03.12  till ansgar baumhauer [* 1972 / de] 

till ansgar baumhauer shows video, spacial and object works, which deal with historical and current topics about the correlation between the west and the middle east. giving us a chance to delve deeper into his topic, we will be holding a public artist talk on the 1st of dec.

04.12 – 11.12  david ashley kerr [* 1986 / victoria / aus]

david ashley kerr explored in his phd thesis the colonial influences on australian culture and will be escorting us into a public artist talk (date to be announced) to report on the current situation in australia.

12.12 – 19.12  sandra monterroso [* 1974 / gtm]

sandra monterroso, in addition to presenting a sound work [which can also be seen at this year’s venice biennale in the south american pavilion], makes an endangered indigenous language available to us through her video work.

IN KIND EXCHANGE + THE STROKE OF A PEN | ifa gallery | Brussels


sergey balovin brings his mad talent and energy to brussels this afternoon for an experimental happening presented as part of THE STROKE OF A PEN group exhibition during it’s last week at ifa gallery.

sergey has spent the last few years traveling around the world engrossed in his project, IN KIND EXCHANGE.


in a commitment to sustain all his daily needs while strictly avoiding monetary transactions, he has been able to survive exclusively through goods exchanged with people that are excited to trade tangible, useful things to him for beautiful, customized portraits he makes on site.

the unexpected skill present in sergey’s pen and ink illustrations reflect his classical training as a painter in russia before setting out on the wilder path he navigates now, as an artist with no use for a monetary system.

if you are able to see this happening while it’s ongoing today at ifa gallery, then you are in for a real treat. enjoy.



THE STROKE OF A PEN | ifa gallery [more details]


“ifa gallery showcases a group of artists commissioned for the exhibition, THE STROKE OF A PEN, each artist interpreting the title as he or she sees best, whether figuratively or with more violent overtones.

christophe demaître melts photography techniques and ink with sensuality. zane mellupe explores the importance of line in the landscape with her marble sculpture. christopher paul gill’s collages underline the necessity of freedom of expression, as does susanne junker with her feminist-themed photographs.

kathryn gohmert’s drawings are the expression of the underestimated carnage that took place in baga, nigeria, on the same date of the charlie hebdo attacks. wu junyong and dai guangyu concentrate on the issue of ink in contemporary chinese culture. alexandre ouairy proposes in “blank project” a series of 100 silk-screen prints on art paper, all numbered and signed. the contract signed during their acquisition defines the artist’s moral right toward his artwork.”
