Das Haus (ausgestellt)
The new film, Das Haus, brings the exhibition full circle. The work is part of a 16mm film series, Concrete and Samples, through which Aglaia Konrad continues to deepen her cinematic investigation of sculptural architecture.
The new film was shot in the home of Van Wassenhove, designed by architect Julian Lampens in Sint-Martens-Latem. The artist explores the possibilities of the film medium, going beyond a purely documentary record, generating a sensory, at times even sensual architectural experience. Das Haus transcends mere filming, thanks to an engaging editing of the delicate camera work.
Das Haus is to be premiered in Netwerk as a spatial installation as part of a solo presentation. The exhibition architecture is designed by the artist in close collaboration with architect Kris Kimpe. On Sunday, April 6th, the film will have a first screening at the Courtisane Festival in Ghent (cinema Sphinx).
The film was produced by Auguste Orts, in co -production with Courtesan, supported by Flanders Audiovisual Fund, Netwerk / Centre for Contemporary Art, Ghent University (Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, Department of Communications, Department of Facilities Office), LUCA Sint-Lukas Brussels, Foundation Juliaan Lampens, Fotohof Salzburg and Province of East Flanders.
