Members of HARD-CORE include a handful of artists that have graced the digital pages of aqnb before but prefer, for the sake of the collective, to remain unnamed. “We try to treat HARD-CORE as an individual character that rather controls us,” writes one artist in an email.
The exhibition in Middelburg comes as part of a two-year series of exhibitions called LET GOOOOO, curated by Just Quist and hosted by the Ruimte Caesuur a project space, taking the form of a constructive critique on what was perceived as the failure of the series in its mission. Described as an “imaginative exhibition constructed out of hypothetical scenarios” and “through your own, and external, imaginary restrains”, Close Your Eyes comes with a sound piece designed as a journey through various exhibiting scenarios and accompanied with the (royalty-free) songs of Kevin MacLeod.
