A Two Dogs Company / Kris Verdonck
Brussels (B)

EXTRACTIONS 23 is an exhibition that brings together different artists who work along the themes of extraction and landscapes. The selection of installations, new and mixed media, photographs, paintings, drawings, sculptures, performances and music, sketches an image of humankind that seems to have no other choice than to exploit its environment. Extraction does not only mean destruction, or at least not right away. It can also mean cultivation, making land available for growing crops. Nowadays, extraction has degenerated into consumption, a devastating process that is wreaking havoc at micro and macro levels, from our intimate thoughts to the layers of the Earth. EXTRACTIONS 23 is the third edition of this annual exhibition organised by Kris Verdonck / A Two Dogs Company and takes place in the company’s atelier.

What Dogs Hear - Sound installation & performance

16.06.2023 - 18.06.2023

MG+ Moderna Galerija / Museum of Modern Art

What Dogs Hear consists of a vocal mimesis of imperceptible signals, sound waves and radio waves beyond human hearing range. Aernoudt Jacobs will perform this work with Slovenian vocalists in the form of an installation and several performances in Ljubljana for a wide audience of babies, children and adults. The tangibility of bodily sounds will get a focus during the performances. The performers' vocalizations will be heard through stethoscopes and amplified through a foil speaker that can be manipulated by the audience.

In the framework of B-AIR
Performed by Tisa Neža Herlec, Žiga Jenko, Tea Vidmar, Ina Puntar and Aernoudt Jacobs
Co-produced by KUD Mreža/Nataša Serec, RTVSLO, B-AIR, r25b4

When a sixth person tries to join, five must define what makes them a group.

A Raven tells the story of five friends who live together. It would be a peaceful life if a sixth one did not continually try to join them. The five don’t know the sixth, but they don’t really know each other either. And what is acceptable to the five is not acceptable to the sixth. How can they explain this to the sixth? Long explanations would lead them to include him in their group. Then the Five reject him, until a Seventh presents himself to the group...

SHRINK 01995

03.06.2023 - 03.06.2023

Nuit Blanche Paris
Palais Galliera - Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris 10, avenue Pierre-1er-de-Serbie , Paris 16e

SHRINK 01995 - Two large, transparent plastic sheets and a device that gradually sucks the air out from between them leave the body (in this case the artist himself) vacuum-packed and vertically suspended. The transparent tube inserted between the two surfaces allows the person inside the installation to regulate the flow of air. As a result of the increasing pressure between the plastic sheets, the surface of the packed body gradually freezes into multiple micro-folds. For the duration of the performance the person inside moves slowly and changes positions, which vary from an almost embryonic position to one resembling a crucified body.

At Nuit Blanche Paris there will be 3 Shrinks and the bodies of 3 performers.

Tipping Point


Bleue - 3ième édition
Théâtre des Bernardines, Marseille (F)

Bleue is a celebration of the sea as a melting pot of biodiversity and part of a whole, our planet, in the era of climate change.

The installation Tipping Point is a sensitive and poetic tribute to those dying glaciers. It stages the (re)birth of an artificial glacier protected by a dome; a drip is feeding the glacier that will grow during the exhibition. The device invites the viewer to attend the birth of this artificial glacier. It is inspired by the “ice stupas” invented by the engineer Sonam Wangchuk and used to fight against water shortages during the summer in Ladakh.

Between a laboratory experiment, an attempt to repair the climate or an ironic collector’s item, the installation confronts us with time and scales; 10.000 years ago, the stabilisation of our cryosphere coincided with the first human traces we found in Mesopotamia, while the fist glaciers are disappearing in 70 years under the pressure of the human activity.

The Ríos Trilogy by Laura Colmenares Guerra is an extensive project consisting of three chapters exploring the Amazon Basin from local and global perspectives. It offers a perspective on the region that aims to understand how people within traditional Western thinking relate to Amazonia. Through different approaches, the Trilogy attempts to understand the meanings and definitions attributed to this territory. It also sheds light on the history of colonisation and how it has impacted Amazonia, providing insights into the current socio-environmental threats facing the region.

The Ríos Trilogy is composed of three chapters:

Interactive, experimental research tool that allows mapping information related to the Amazons Rainforest on social media.

21 ceramic 3D printed speculative cartographies emerging from the digital hybridisation process of Amazonia-related data and the actual topography of the Amazon basin.

CHAPTER N.3.: R€¥€R$€
Virtual Reality (VR 30') piece that underlines the existing tensions where human, cultural and environmental aspects rub with power, economics and multinational interests in a context of climate stress.

Wednesday to Sunday 
14:00 - 19:00

Please note that R€¥€R$€ is 30 min. VR piece.

Astronauts who were able to observe planet earth from outer space for the first time, all experienced a strong emotional reaction later called the overview effect. A euphoric feeling of oneness with the planet and all living beings as a collective biotope where 'my molecules are yours and vice versa and individuality seems an illusion.

The work of Lawrence Malstaf is situated on the borderline between the visual and the theatrical. He develops installation and performance art with a strong focus on movement, coincidence, order and chaos, and immersive sensorial rooms for individual visitors. He also creates larger mobile environments dealing with space and orientation, often using the visitor as a co-actor. His projects involve physics and technology as a point of departure or inspiration and as a means for activating installations.
