Archive – (They Say This Is The) Place, Antwerp, 2001

From 15 September to 2 December 2001, during equally disturbing times as we are experiencing right now, I organized the group exhibition (They Say This Is The) Place – A positioning in two locations in Antwerp: the Koningin Fabiolazaal (Queen Fabiola Hall) and the nearby, newly renovated Sint Jansplein (Saint Johns Square). The first part of the title referred to a work by Peter Hulsmans, while the subtitle (‘plaatsbepaling’ in Dutch) and the concept played with all kinds of connotations of ‘place’ which in Dutch can also refer to a square (plaats, plein). Other artists besides Hulsmans were Cel Crabeels, Anne Daems, Manon De Boer, Jan Kempenaers, Marie-France & Patricia Martin, Els Opsomer, Lucy + Jorge Orta, and Ilona Ruegg,.

Please note that this post is currently under construction. A detailed description of the artist’s contributions and a translation of the catalogue text will be added soon.
