    How to Open an Art Gallery No.2////// video_____will be shown at "The House of Art and Beauty/ THOAB_____1.9.19

    The House of Art and Beauty brengt beeldende kunstenaars en choreografen samen voor een intense vijf uur durende happening. Daarmee wil het een lans breken voor meer ‘radical beauty’ en voor meer samenwerking. De energie van de kunstenaars wordt samengebracht in één grote beweging in de Duinstraat 124 te 2060 Antwerpen, het voormalige Imea-gebouw, nu huis en atelier van Katleen Vinck. Een genereus gebaar aan de kunst in haar meest directe, radicale, ruwe en pure vorm.



    The House of Art and Beauty is the one-off gathering of a large group of visual artists and choreographers. This is a strong commitment to more ‘radical beauty’ and collaboration within the arts. THOA&B wants to bring the energy, creativity and stamina of the artists together in one big movement in Duinstraat 124 in 2060 Antwerp, the former Imea building, now the home and studio of Katleen Vinck. It will be an intense 5-hour happening, a generous gesture to art in its most direct, radical, rough and pure form.

    "Der Zauberlehrling"________

    “Der Zauberlehrling”


    broomsticks, lackpaint, hair pieces, pvc, spraycan


    2019



    Der Zauberlehrling, naar het gelijknamige gedicht van Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe over een leerling in de magische kunsten, die de toverspreuk van zijn meester uitprobeert op een bezem en deze in een knecht verandert, is een werk bestaande uit 11 kleurrijke borstels hangende aan een pvc hula hoop. "De borstels verschijnen in mijn dromen en dan weet ik dat ik er weer een moet maken.” Elke borstel heeft zijn eigen kleurencombinatie, pruik en naam. Zo is er Cindy, Judy, Bridget, Laura, Louise, Isa, Sarah, Bobbie en Sylvie, namen van vriendinnen, verzonnen namen alsook de namen van kunstenaars die Dreisz dagelijks inspireren waaronder Cindy Sherman, Judy Chigago, Bridget Riley, Laura Owens en Sylvie Fleurie.
    Elke borstel bezit zijn eigen tekst bestaande uit een samenraapsel van filosofische geschriften, the handbook of Chinese Horoscopes, citaten van vrouwelijke kunstenaars en Dreisz paranormale channelings, waardoor de borstels levende personages worden in een Beckettiaans theater en lustig orakelen over een Gouden Tijdperk dat verborgen ligt achter de muur van leugens die de bouwstenen zijn van onze hefendaagse maatschappij. Een esoterische, alchemistische bijeenkomst.
    Net zoals “der Zauberlehrling” will Dreisz de borstels tot leven wekken. Niet tot knechten, maar heldinnen!


    “But a Broom Stick, perhaps you will say, is an Emblem of a Tree standing on its Head and pray what is Man, but a Topsey Turvey Creature, his Animal Faculties perpetually mounted on his Rational, His Head where his Heels should be, groveling on the Earth, and yet with all his Faults, he sets up to be a Universal Reformer and Corrector of Abuses, a Remover of Grievances, rakes into every Sluts Corner of Nature, bringing Hidden Corruptions to the Light, and raises a Mighty Dust where there was none before.”

    (from “Meditation upon a Broomstick" by Jonathan Swift, 1701)



    Waar Beuys borstels gebruikte om de maatschappij te veranderen, wil Dreisz in zijn voetsporen treden, maar op een speelse manier, de themas zijn echter zeer sociaal/politiek/ esoterisch en vooral emotioneel.
    We must formulate a new declaration of the rights of man. This is a individual revolution. I wish to liberate man from the invisible oppressors of the imagination, the mind, the senses, desire. I call for freedom from closed rationalism, deadening functionalism, reigning moral laws and stultifying common sense. I call not for better working conditions but for no work at all. I do not walk in pragmatic solidarity but in imaginative solitude.
    Haar individuele revolutie zet zich voort. “ Er is gewoon nog niemand die naar me luistert” (Annea Lyvv Dreisz)






    Nobody Acts. Nothing Happens. It’s a Blonde Dream. It’s epic diligence. But undesirable things are really beautiful. Think again!
    Knowing is not enoughh. It never was and it Never will.
    Knowledge is not yet buried imagination.
    Have you been in the Kitchen Lately? It has changed somehow. It’s time for a party! MK ULTRA is a real thing. The CIA is calling me but I’m invisible. Hello! Hello! I’m living in this spaceship! I can see you!
    I like to look at Everything and Feel everything. I became a Star. Sold Out. So I How many paintings are there in a day? I must be a natural Empire Builder. Says who? I’m moving a mountain. Do Not Disturb.
    Latexxx! Rubberrr! Plasterrrr! Sweep . Spiral. The hollow inner space. Oh Superwoman! Money matters most!
    You have to think twice about everything I say. No matter whether I mean it seriously or jokingly. But I mean it! I call for a Paradise inside your brain. A moderately happy year. No serious disputes at home. Think your life into existence.
    With no respect for technology I ride towards the sun outside my computer. You! Oh You! No splinterlollipop for me.
    feel like a vacuumcleaner . But I’m not.
    Holy! Holy ! Holy! The angels are real but your machines are too loud.
    Beyond the Flower
    Freedom is a state of mind inside my dream.
    Freedom is like a rollercoaster riding through my vains.

  • "VRIJHEID VANDAAG"_____ Kunstenfestival Aardenburg___28.6.19-18.8.19

    "VRIJHEID VANDAAG"_____ Kunstenfestival Aardenburg___28.6.19-18.8.19

    Naar aanleiding van de viering van de bevrijding na de Tweede Wereldoorlog, werd deze editie van het tweejaarlijkse Kunstenfestival Aardenburg in het teken geplaatst van de vrijheid.
    Voor Baruch Spinoza, een ingeweken Portugese Jood die spreekrecht had in het vrije Nederland, bestond vrijheid in het aanvaarden van de noodzakelijkheid. Vrij is, wie zich niet stukloopt op de onveranderlijkheid van de wereld of, zoals Nietzsche het iets pathetischer uitdrukte, zijn noodlot durft te omarmen. In die zin kunnen we vrijheid zien als een verlossing van onwerkelijke verlangens of buitensporige driften.
    De grootste gevangenis van de mens, echter, lijkt niet te bestaan in de begrensdheid van zijn of haar mogelijkheden en die van de wereld, maar in een steeds weer opgeslorpt worden door een gewoontedenken dat ons belet te zien dat sommige zaken wél kunnen veranderen.
    Humor en poëzie tonen barsten in dit gewoontedenken. De lach en de ontroering werken bevrijdend. Ze tonen onze gedachten opnieuw in hun ware gedaante: als conventies die ooit werkzaam zijn geweest, maar ons vandaag misschien beletten van op een nederige, dansante, beweeglijke, alerte, speelse, onderzoekende, door het niet-weten gedreven manier om te gaan met de almaar in beweging zijnde werkelijkheid.
    Kunstwerken nemen onze blinddoek weg. Ze plaatsen ons in een ontbloot heden, waar oude gedachten minder greep hebben op ons gemoed en op onze handelingen.
    Op een vergelijkbare manier komen oorspronkelijke kunstenaars tot nieuwe kunstwerken door conventies te negeren of te overstijgen, door via een oefenende omgang met de dingen meer mogelijkheden te ontdekken, door zo eerlijk mogelijk naar zichzelf te kijken, door hun schaamtegevoelens te overwinnen en zich kwetsbaar op te stellen.
    Door te doen wat ze doen, eisen kunstenaars het recht op te zijn wie ze zijn, zoals ze zijn, waar ze zijn, vandaag. Zo maken ze plaats voor zichzelf, voor hun manier van handelen en zijn, maar ook voor ons. En door hun onderlinge verschillen maken ze ook plaats voor verscheidenheid, voor het gesprek, voor echt denken en vrij handelen.
    Kunst is een actualisering van de vrijheid: een aftasten van de grenzen van het bereikbare en een reikhalzend uitkijken naar het onbereikbare. Het aftasten van de grens tussen het mogelijke en het werkelijke. Een werkelijk in de wereld staan, met open vizier.

    Hans Theys

    How to Open an Art Gallery____ a performance by Annea Lyvv Dreisz___ AARS (AntwerpArtistRunSchool) master class

    "How to Open an Art Gallery" is a project that started after I visited 'Troebel Neyntje' a Very Confusing Gallery with a Very Very Brilliant Owner. He made an artist book with Black and White photographs of Antwerpian Artists named "KUNSTENAARS IN ZWART WIT". One of the pictures I made of Guy Rombouts and Bedrich Eisenhoet was in it, so I got a copy and was overly joyed! While strolling along in this Confusing Galleryspace, I stumbled upon the ultimate and hilarious course "How to Open an Art Gallery" made by Sevenans himself, who recently founded AARS or Antwerp Artist Run School. This course was based on the (incredibly ugly) AP academic courses where he portrays himself opening the door of an Antwerp Art Gallery while meticulously explaining the actions involved with the opening of an Art Gallery. I told Sevenans how I went head by foot seeing that course on video and bought it immediately. It felt like an investment in a Fantastic and Controversial Hilarious Future! With this Course in my hand I felt more powerful than any leader on planet earth and I FELT now I could Change the World! I drove home with my AARS course, my heart Beatin like a Beatnik and my brain a Million Times in Overdrive. When I got home I immediately called Sevenans and told him I wanted to use the course and open a Gallery every month! He found that a very good idea and told me we should start as soon as possible. I got subscribed as the only student at AARS, got a real student card and a few weeks later we succesfully opened a first Art Gallery around the corner named (re)D. Gallery. Now, half a year later, we just finished opening a 5 th Art Gallery! And life is good...

    ”Opening an Art Gallery is the most fascinating thing to do! I feel like an explorer, representing our species, bringing back some new ideas in to this world. I feel like saving the Soul of mankind by opening Art Galleries. I see culture as an effort to literally realize our collective dreams.”

    On a performance____Interview Fluff Magazine____Live @ FORBIDDEN CITY ///// THE RARARA (BE) _____ 20.10.18



    Last August I travelled to California and Arizona for the first time in my life and decided to record some music while traveling. Kindof like a diary of sounds and beats. It started with the song "I Missed my Flight No.1" and sadly enough it is based on true facts. (laughs) When I eventually arrived in Arizona I went to see a psychic and he told me I would be fine as long as I felt FREE and kept myself in a Constant State of Celebration in Harmony with the Universe!I thought he would tell me to get a job and start working!!! (laughs) So when I got back I wanted to perform like crazy and was very happy I could play at Forbidden City, most exciting place in town! Around this time, me and Mousy were doing an exhibition at aip (Artist is Present) and while painting I thought about the concert all the time.. To keep my spirits up I watched Andy Kaufmann cus he is so Brilliant!! I decided to let him do the introduction so he is telling the joke about the Cannonball which is totally absurd and directly points to the absurdity of war and the madness of the human mind that is ruling our society these days.... I'm very bad at telling jokes but I wanted people to laugh so Andy had to do it. Thank you Andy! (laughs)

    “ for this exhibition we are largely inspired by ‘het Cruijffiaans’. Cruijff, being one of our heros when we were young.
    Not that we were interested in football at all, but his use of language fascinated us.”
    Cruijffiaans is the name given to the way of speaking, or a collection of sayings, made famous by a Dutch association football player and coach Johan Cruijff (1947–2016), particularly “one-liners that hover somewhere between the brilliant and the banal”.

Onder de losgeslagen leiding van underground-parel Raveyards (de band rond François de Meyer en Stefan Bracke) verzamelen zich een schare artiesten die u deinend, dansend en dreunend door een conventieloos avondje loodsen. Het concept werd door Raveyards zelf in het leven geroepen om samen met bevriende kunstenaars een reeks
    korte maar unieke performances te geven: 15 acts krijgen ieder 15 minuten lang de tijd om het publiek te verbazen met hun creatief kunnen. Dit terwijl de presentator het publiek gidst langs vergeten uithoeken van deSingel. Verwacht u aan een unieke nomadische music-, dance-, performance-, party- en poetry-ervaring!

    Observatorium art space is the platform for contemporary art of the new Meatpack site in Antwerp Dam. In a white industrial box of some 500m², exhibitions with changing thematic approaches will be presented. The topics are determined by a large group show at the center of the hall. This show will gather some 30 Belgian and international artists and is curated in collaboration with private and public collections, with galleries and with artists. Different zones are created around the central exhibition where artists present solo exhibitions. There is a display for art editions. A miniature cinema offers a changing program of video works, it's called Cinema North.
    The thematic group shows provide an important basis for the whole Observatorium program. The first show here is called 'Club Conscious' and celebrates the centenary of the naive look within the artistic practice. Not that we can determine an exact year or the exact day for this birthday, but it was at the beginning of the last century, by Dadaism and later through Cobra and Pop Art a change of mentality was established. Previously art was mainly a serious, archaist and adult problem. In the 20th century a childish or adolescent gaze started to dominate, and even club culture became an influence. Until May 'Club Conscious' looks at how this determines the image or theme for many artists today.
    In the periphery of this exhibition, young professional artists show solo exhibitions of recent work. Almost weekly there will be a vernissage in the corridors and halls of Observatorium.

Sit, lay down, eat, drink, listen, read or go hide beneath the floorboards and spy on others. Leave your coats and cloaks at the door, undress as you please, then step into the ABC chambers. ABC Lounge Klub will be yours to hang out in until the bells of Christmas toll.

    This show was curated by C U R A T O R, an artist himself. Here you can read his vision on the exhibition/experience.

    'The best shows are artist runned so i build a show run by artists.
    In fact I wanted to research that topic and see what it would be like to do the opposite and come up with a selection of researched artists and let them decide what work they would prefer to show w/o them knowing what works are already selected. The works are than given a certain freedom in the exhibition not only by chance but as a metaphore for life, to show a certain way of acceptence unknowingly by the artists as an archive for the future. Coincidence is a very important topic in this show bc I wanted to research how relevant it is to collect art from its time meaning that qualitative artworks would still exist today on the contrary of what mainstream thinkers today claim out of unawareness and the underestimation of the vastness of what art can mean and its panache it can carry build to reach all poeple. In our community i noticed you've got a v apparent way of percieving art out of a certain pretence almost of division between artist and 'the normal'. It certainly is my approach as C U R A T O R to percieve exhibitions out of a pretentiousless situation but at the same time v reflective towards our time.
    In that aspect the goal to see the beautifull vastness of space is hypothisised in this exhibition.
    Imagine a conversation taking place in space. It can be anything, it can be anywhere yet we are certain our generation has not partaken in such, physically. Our mental state is yet another issue where the boundaries are not yet set and current scientific statements are beeing debunked one after another. Debunking things is a good thing in science but only with hard proven factual material. Science is subjective but deffinitions arent and debunking deffinitions means evolution and evolving is a good thing. Human behaviour is different. You cant define human beahaviour you can only experience it and talk out of experience. Share thoughts and to exclude any vision is a malfunction of the denying factor within the discussion if its a yes or no situation posed by said factor. Does the person come out of its cocoon and accepts a different oppinion yet states a vision from the self? Then the discussion is on going and even wrong or right can play a factor in accepting eachothers view yet there is no wrong nor right when coming down to discussion. Yet there is oc, and everybody will be wrong or right even during a whole period in time and even that should be respected as such bc there will be nothing more educative than such periods. This exhibition is such conversation.
    Every aspect in a open conversation is here and therefore the exhibition should be taken in as a whole conversation as visual creating ppl talking to eachother, oppinionated yet reaching each visitor individualy or in group. It is al equal. And thats the goal of evolution. Not just simply accepting eachother as they are but going into conversation, talking to eachother, communicating in a sense that is experience ridden and therefore valuable. We all think alike yet we experience diffirences. Respect that from eachother.
    But this exhibition is far from a preach. life is open, think about it. Take a look at the exhibition. Commentt I will answer u when I can.'

    The organisation of the 5th dimensional community is the natural result of the integration of these energies through the individuals that are staying here.'

    This performance started with 3 video's I made in a swimming pool in the South of France. I call them Infinity Pool I,II,III named after the exact name the architects gave these specific kind of very sofisticated swimming pools that have a straight edge of water so you littelarly connect water and landscape. What fascinated me was the lightplay that occured when you jump in the water. There is a certain structure, form and movement that appears which is kindof hypnotizing. WATER MOVES IN LIGHT and through light and human interaction. Its the communication of WATER,LIGHT and PERSON. I could keep on watching it while it took me in a sort of trance. So then I filmed it and changed the speed so it becomes even more hypnotizing and in a way alienating. I kept the original sound of the water which transformed as well through the changing of the speed and this sounded perfect to me.
    So that was the ultimate start of this performance. This pool of infinite possibilities(thats what it represents to me). I knew I wanted to connect it with human voice. As I have been exploring the possibilities of the human voice throughout my life I wanted to let go of everything I knew(which I'm also busy with my whole life as we get information constantly so constantly you have to check, is it real, or is it not? Is it true or is it false?. At home Guy gave me Tibetan singing bowls and I started to listen to them and they started to speak to me and made me clear my voice is an infinity pool of endless possibilities. So I started to experiment with this. I would sit inside the infinity pool and listen what would come up. I would record layer after layer of different sounds and this would become a sortof a soundscape. So this was the setting. I knew this would be the setting. I would project the 3 videos straight on the wallso it forms kindof an aquarium where peomple sit in.
    So then I started to think about how people should experience this Infinity Pool. This is a very important part of the 'oelalila experiment' namely the questioning of HOW the viewer will experience the performance. So I started to think on what it is exactly that I want to do (which I'm also questioning my whole life already)? From the first of january 2017 I started to meditate and channel in my studio and would bring in this vibration of the 5th dimension which means the idea of paradise ( I do not mean utopia as utopia implies a visionary world that is NOT reality. This vision of paradise I'm talking about is VERY real) where everything is possible but only from a certain state of consciousness.In a way I see myself as someone who comes from the future and with this image of the future that is quite fascinating I came back over here to let you know that paradise is very real. So there are certain things NOT possible. These are universal laws and I am in total servance of these laws cus they appear to be very wise so I will not go in discussion with someone who is not as wise as the universe itself as they would understand how wise these laws are and would not want to discuss them but serve them and this would be inspiring to create even a higher way of being.oh, and I love paradoxes.
    So actually I see my atelier as a personification of the creation of paradise. Of course it's an experiment so nothing is already decided or fixed. It unfolds day by day.(!!!) Every day I talk with the gods and they give me information on how to proceed.
    So, then I realized I wanted to create a persona in the video installation. I found a peace of very colourfull glittery space fabric and put it over me so atually I was wearing a very glittering Burka which felt perfectly right to me as I feel like the liberation of this dark force that oppresses women all over the world. When I stand in front of the video projection there appear to be two shadow figures that are the personification of my shadow and while I personificate the female voice, it's the transformation of the female transformation of human perspective of the 21st century throough art.
    So how will the viewer experience the performance?
    I decided it would be one on one. Before the viewer comes in, they will wait in a waiting room where they are asked to think about a question that they want to see answered, they are also asked to forget everything they know so far. THen they come in and will be welcomed in the 5th dimension.
    There was a rule I gave myself to make it very positive, very positive. As we are bombarded by very negative information that is not even necessarily true, I want to bring some opposite power, the idea of the possibility of liberation and freedom.
    So the viewer gets a compliment 'you are so waw!' and that is to let the viewer remember in a sense who they really are. It's from an overall perspective on life where pure love is the ultimate basis of life. (which is quite shockingly different from the current situation.)I always liked art that was shocking and provocing. But I'lm now questioning myself so much on how much more shocks can the people experience? I think the whole world is in a state of shock so I every day for the last two years I tried to become more and more enlightened so I could bring that vibration into my art. So then the viewer gest a sound. This sound is created on the moment the viewer is there. It's a sort of metaphysical answer on the question they asked. And it is never the same. I see it as an act of transformation where the viewer gets disoriented in the images, the space and the sound, sometimes I speak but it is a language the viewer cannot understand. It is important everything is in a way non understandable. there are no 2 performances alike. After the performance the viewer goes outside and gets a paper which says 'you are now pure gold' which implies that the viewer has become gold referring to the alchemists who can turn objects into gold. So a very important aspect of this performance is transformation.
