The theme of Project Daejeon 2016 is COSMOS. The quest for the origins of life in the universe has inspired many artists. Project Daejeon 2016 has an ambition to break with the stereotypical view of the world and humanity and wishes to give a deeper insight into art and science through various collaborations.

Event Horizon: Dust particles are suspended in a light beam which is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors can enter wearing a protective gas mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro universe. Remote sounds of human masses and activity fill the otherwise empty room.

MU - 'Weather or Not' group exhibition

01.07.2016 - 25.09.2016

Torenallee 40-06 (Strijp-S), Eindhoven (NL)

Sun, wind and rain enter the exhibition space in unexpected, poetic ways. Measurements and weather in uences are translated into images, movement and sound. The weather becomes something more personal, more tangible. As our amazement grows, so does the feeling of human insigni dance versus the complexity and unpredictability of the climate system: we set things in motion but we clearly can’t oversee the consequences. Meanwhile, come rain or shine, MU continues to keep a weather eye on any relevant developments!

Premiere 'State & Ecstasy'


Harstad (NO)

'State & Ecstasy' is a performance with dance, installation, music, poetry: five artists dig into collectivity, both politically and existentially. The result is a subjective and beautiful examination of individualisation and freedom, and a fervent desire - both in art and politics - to achieve a collective ecstasy.

With Amund Sjølie Sveen, Lawrence Malstaf, Jon Tombre, Liv Hanne Haugen and Tale Næss.

The upheaval after the Great War in an interactive performance. Sound rises from the earth: rustling, murmuring… echoes of battle, but also voices and snatches of music. As visitors move through this installation, the sounds retreat. Wherever humans go, the music hushes to a murmur. This interactive sound installation, created by Anneleen de CausmaeckerAnnelies Van Parys and Peter Verhelst, is brought to life by the live performance of Els Mondelaers.

Lawrence Malstaf his proposal FOLDING stems from a research project on traditional origami techniques and contemporary 3D modeling software and explores the borderline between representation and abstraction. The aim is to accumulate a series of full scale kinetic sculptures based on 3D scans of the exhibition visitors. The sculptures expand and shrink according to motion patterns of the public in the space. Thus the visitors are reanimating the abstracted models of earlier visitors and create a responsive choir of breathing avatars. A metaphor for the blurring boundaries between animate nature and inanimate simulation and modeling technology.

David Bowen at The Mattress Factory

20.05.2016 - 12.02.2017

The Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art
Factory Installed @ 1414 Monterey Street, Pittsburgh (US)

The twigs in the SPACEJUNK installation by David Bowen point in unison in the direction of the oldest piece of human made space debris currently above the horizon. The debris being tracked are spent rocket bodies, parts from broken satellites and wayward tools launched in missions as far back as 1959. When the piece of debris being tracked drops below the installation’s horizon the twigs go to a rested downward pointing position an await the next debris to appear. The composition of the installation is continually changing as it tracks the oldest discarded objects orbiting the earth that enter its point of view.
