Solo exhibition with collaborative works by Marjolijn Dijkman & Toril Johannessen including the sculptural installation Liquid Properties, the film Reclaiming Vision and the photo series Aberrations, all produced in 2018.
The exhibition title Being(s) with draws our attention from human-centered thinking to how everything is connected through various intertwining, co-dependent materials, beings and technologies. However, these relations are not purely harmonious. The challenge of being with others is the core of the exhibition. Its twenty selected artists provide an extensive study of how non-human factors and powers shape our lives.
Contour Biennale 9: Coltan as Cotton is a single, drawn-out continuum lasting more than a year, focussing on ecology, inequality, de-growth, solidarity and racism as major themes through films, installations and performances. On-Trade-Off: LUNÄ Talk on the 18th of May will focus on the environmental, social and economic implications of the extraction and processing of Lithium, a vital raw material needed for the global production of Green Energy.
The TENDENCIES exhibition focuses on works that question scientific and technological innovations as much as they incorporate them. For this fourth edition, it looks at our relationship with possible futures, be they dystopian or utopian.
Sound and visual installations by six artists, Marjolijn Dijkman, Jerry Galle, Mikkel Rørbo, Kris Verdonck, Pierre Jean Giloux, and SEAD Collective, are brought together to provoke an overview effect, like that experienced by certain astronauts when they observe Earth from space and realise how fragile life is.
