ALIAS

During Alias various locations in the city of Aalst are inhabited by contemporary art. Alias touches upon the complexity of citizenship, it hints at power currents in the sedimentation of social organisation. What is to be understood as the annals of history, what is their impact on the present and future composition of the city? And how are social relationships formed as ideological constructs, within all of the above?


Artists: Bianca Baldi (°1985, ZA), Omar A. Chowdhury (°1984, AU, BD),Lucile Desamory (°1977, BE), Ieva Epnere (°1977, LV), Ghislaine Leung (°1980, SE), Virginia Lupu (°1990, RO), Wendy Morris (°1960, ZA), Daniela Ortiz (°1985, PE), Ria Pacquée (°1954, BE), Tai Shani (°1976, UK).

BUY A LIMITED EDITION ART WORK OF ANE VESTER & SUPPORT THE BOOK PROJECT THE CHANGE OF COLOUR IS LIKELY

 

THE CHANGE OF COLOUR IS LIKELY will be Ane Vester’s next project: an artist book, planned to be published by the end of 2019, accompanied by book launches and exhibitions in Belgium and Denmark – the artist’s home country.

 

The relation between colour, time, space and word is the key subject in the oeuvre of the in Belgium residing Danish artist Ane Vester (°1963). To her, every colour is an event, full of hidden stories and references.

 

Subsequently, the book will consist of a colour palette deriving from the artist’s archive of colour recollections – thus an autonomous artwork in book format – and illustrated texts.

 

The project will communicate Vester’s work to a broader public and offers a unique view on the insights and experience gathered throughout the years.

To support and finance this project, Ane Vester created a limited edition of thirty handmade collages in two colour variations. Each work forms a unique colour scenario, constructed with colours from her archive.
