OpenHUB: rural vs. urban opening group exhibition
In the context of their residency period in Netwerk local artist Claire Stragier works along with three in German based sound artists: JD Zazie (Valeria Merlini), Annette Krebs and Stephanie Krah. During this opening event, we see the group action, after several days’ intense collaboration. The remnants of their residency can be viewed in the group exhibition ##OpenHUB: rural vs. urban:Activity:1158##.
Ameel Brecht concert
The music of Brussels’ Ameel Brecht often takes you to vast latitudes, rural vs. urban. He’s the frontman of Razen, the ground-breaking improvisation group with Kim Delcour. When playing solo, he uses classical and avant-garde techniques on a steel resonator and resonator mandolin, two instruments he has chosen because of their metallic timbre and natural reverberation. The concert is the result of a 14-day residency in Netwerk.
“I play in alternate tunings, which are derivatives of harp tunings from South America and seek out instrumental pieces that lay a Moebius-loop around the music of Girolamo Kapsberger, Turlough O’Carolan, Frantz Casseus and Lou Harrison.”
openHUB Europe is a European cooperation-project in the field of interdisciplinary contemporary art. Netwerk’s partners are OSTRALE – Exhibition for Contemporary Arts from Germany, The Word of Hope Association from Poland and Associazione Equinozio from Italy. Within this two-year project five art events will be realised
