5EVER Summer @ Komplot, Sep 3 – Oct 15

5 September 2016

Brussels-based curatorial collective Komplot presents 5EVER Summer, a series of five different events at five different locations spanning Belgium, France, and Greece throughout September and October.

Concerned with nomadic creative practice, the collective begins their programme at their home location in Belgium, presenting new work from Paris-based duo Fenêtreproject (Dustin Cauchi and Francesca Mangion). The exhibition is entitled Dreamworks and is curated by Paris-based gallery La Plage. It opens September 3 and runs through October 15.

On September 8 two two-person exhibitions will open in Brussels, GEOLOGOS and SickGEOLOGOS is “not an exhibition that takes place at Komplot, nor will it be a group show at“. Artist duo Blunt x Skensved (Grégoire Blunt and Emmy Skensved) produce web-based projects and digital animation. Berlin-based artists Antoine Renard and Clémence de La Tour du Pin produce sculptures and installations for the second exhibition, Sick. They present a dense sculptural environment that investigates “the relationships between technological emancipation, entertainment and decay within the context of late capitalism”.

Komplot will participate in the Artists Books & Independent Publishers Fair at BRASS in Belgium on September 9. The event is curated by Jap and Komplot and includes a “DJ Set of Fat Chance” in the evening.

Alex Morrison presents Furniture Collectibles at Paris’ La Plage on September 15 running through October 15. Morrison’s art “engages a pre-modern architecture and design history – moments from Art Deco, utopian architecture, and interior design all inform his work”. He presents installations and objects and is interested in “the constant recycling of aesthetic codes”.

Group show Extend & Pretend opens on September 24 at Enterprise Projects in Athens, Greece. It features work from Laurie Charles, Patrice Gaillard & Claude, Filip Gilissen, Guillaume Ginet, Seyran Kirmizitoprak, Cleo Totti, Benny Van Den Meulengracht-Vranckx, and Elise Van Mourik. The exhibition title references the “patronising, glib slogan applied by English speakers to Greece’s financial policy of accepting heavy loans from other EU countries”. The exhibition intends to “forge links from real things in real space – a conversation of objects in a room and a conversation between space and artists in Brussels and Athens”.
