LLS paleis, Antwerp.
A 019-Ghent project !
Design of a fixed door, 2 locks & 2 keys :)

What happens if you leave the front door ajar — half closed, or half open?

From 10 September 2023 onwards, Ghent-based art collective 019 shifts the edges and dimensions of LLS Paleis’s art space. As a response to John Körmeling’s intervention, 019 constructs a new entrance. Part of the exhibition space temporarily turns into a front yard. As such, what is in- and outside, public and private, art space and sidewalk, is critically questioned by a simple gesture. 019 Will curate a program in the in-between, with artists adding subtle interventions to test the possibilities and limits of such a vaguely defined, semi-public space—a space obeying to different rules, welcoming other visitors, and generating both solicited and unsolicited artistic additions. With contributions by amongst others: Stijn ter Braak, Lizzy Ellbrück, Ilke Gers, Mathew Kneebone, Tony Matelli, Jan Minne, Mark Redele, Stéphanie Saadé, Joëlle Tuerlinckx and Lois Weinberger.

Thanks at Stella Lohaus & Dora Brams, John Körmeling + Tomas Lootens, Bieke Criel and the great 019 building team! + Werner Musenbrock!
