No Material Difference
What makes a difference; materiality, concept, perspective? Material is the substance that comprises the whole, a gestalt matter of that which is tangible. Or is it? The material that leads to a play or a comedy routine isn’t tangible. So then, is material a tool? A yard of fabric? Is material a quality? Whether substantial or a mode of philosophical reasoning in our work; there is no material difference.
As we embark on our graduation, we invite you to a showcase of our progress and research in it’s final culmination. At AKV|St.Joost, master’s students are challenged to respond to and shape a new reality within the contemporary landscape. With a focus on new models of self-organization, alternative networks and artist-initiated activities; participants explore their own position, while focusing on an integrated approach to independent research and studio practice.
Throughout the course of our exhibition at Club Solo, we will be scheduling events and performances.
