Residence Yukiko Shinozaki and Heine Avdal



“One idea we are interested in exploring in “assimilation” is the materiality of darkness. What is the stuff of darkness? How do we make darkness tangible? Which other realities, encounters, and connections become possible in the dark? During our residency at Netwerk Aalst, we divided up the stage space, juxtaposed different spaces, and explored the nature of the boundaries between them. Where do different spaces get entangled? Where and how do they open up? Where do the edges of a space disappear or start to fray? And how might they come together again?”

The residency of Yukiko Shinozaki and Heine Avdal is part of Netwerk Aalst’s search for integral forms of institutional support for artistic creations.
