This guest post is by Sophie, a CIR in Kanazawa.
For those who have some spare time the coming week, from December 16th till the 24th there will be a Belgian-Japanese exposition in Kapo (near Kenrokuen)!
It’s a collaboration experiment between art students from Ghent and Kanazawa, which are sister cities.
LABEL is a monthly event organized by students of the ‘Multimedia Design’
program (K.A.S.K. Ghent). Two students curate the event and develop an interesting presentation context for visual and live art of their fellow students and professional artists. LABEL.07 is the initiative of Dries Douibi and Annelien Vermeir in cooperation with the Japanese curator Masahiro Saito.
‘TANTAMOUNT / LABEL.07 GHENT – KANAZAWA’ is an exhibition concept in which
the curators investigate the boundaries and the challenge of the exhibition
The show takes place simultaneously on two radically different locations,
KAPO (Kanazawa Art Port) – Kanazawa (Japan) and timelab – Ghent (Belgium).
The Japanese artwork, sent by airmail from japan, will be on view in timelab
(Ghent), together with a representation of the original Belgian work which will be
physically present in KAPO (Japan). At the same time the Belgian work will be on view in KAPO (Japan)
in relation with the virtual representation of the original Japanese works. The project’s intention lies in creating one exhibition/event that reflects
on a virtual level.
The exhibition will be open for public from 16 Dec. 2010 until 24 Dec. 2010
from 11AM – 5PM.
Closed on Monday, 20 Dec. 2010, and Tuesday, 21 Dec. 2010.
timelab – BRUSSELSEPOORTSTRAAT 97 – 9000 GHENT (Belgium) and
KAPO – 1-11 KOSHO-MACHI, KANAZAWA CITY, ISHIKAWA PREFECTURE (Japan)
In addition to that there will be live events on every exhibition day that will connect the sites in Belgium and Japan.
