Susanna Ingignoli – Play and Reflect

7th edition of To Be Antwerp – 2nd participation for Kalkman Gallery

“Play and reflect” is a project born thanks to conversations with people whom I had the opportunity to meet in my new beginning in Antwerp. Like me, they arrived in the city last year. Talking to people from different parts of the world made me reflect on how different the “obstacles” to arriving in a new city can be. Often, simply due to different nationalities, or how much in a world where everything seems “within reach”, we are still so tied to certain stereotypes.

In this digital age in which facial recognition claims to define human beings by collecting data, we realize that in reality we still know little about the people we share this planet with. The vinyl records I created also represent a collection, but that has nothing to do with our aesthetic traits. Each vinyl summarizes a small story of the participants who took part in my workshop, during which, in random pairs, they had to carry out 10 different activities (which gave the name to the 10 vinyl tracks) to get to know each other in alternative and engaging ways. The activities were the pretext to stimulate broader conversations, some more curious, others more personal, others more profound. The content of the vinyl records tells a lot about these people without the need to show their faces properly. Reflected images do not reveal to us a copy of reality, but they help us to observe it in a different way and to open ourselves to change perspective.

WHAT IF,…: Sep 17 – Oct 16 2022

a solo-exhibition by Lindert Steegen

Opening: Saturday September 17th 2022, 12 to 6 PM

Sint-Jorispoort 28, Antwerp (our Antwerp space)

Transforming places and spaces

Lindert Steegen is based in Ghent, Belgium. He has transformed quite a number of public places and spaces with his own style: a colorful and abstract play of designs, referring to the combination of his love for graffiti, graphic design and 3D animation. 

Wall Sculptures: the WHAT IF,… series

For his first solo exhibition in Antwerp, Lindert transferred his street art into wall sculptures: spray paint on sculpted Douglas Pitch Pine. The title of each sculpture refers to a WHAT IF,… sentiment.

You are invited to be the first to see the result of Lindert’s WHAT IF,… series, opening on Saturday 17.09.22 at the KALKMAN Gallery in Antwerp.

In this show, his latest artworks ‘Guns Don’t Kill’ and ‘Things People Say’ will be shown to the audience. Also, older work such as ICE-T on Lego (2012, ed. 10) will be part of the exhibition.
