The exhibition Flattened Intensities – Intensified Flatness shows a dialogue between the work of contemporary artists, Hannah De Corte, Muesli Collective (Louis Darcel, Hannah De Corte, João Freitas) and Griet Moors, and the research of Stefanie De Winter. The starting point is the much-discussed tension between flatness and illusion within painting. On the one hand, the artists question the pursuit of flatness through the emphasis on physical form and, on the other hand, the interference of this literalness through the organization of color, form and specific materiality, resulting in an illusory projection of space. The possibilities of spatiality within and outside the two-dimensional painting surface will be explored from various perspectives. For the symposium, Prof. Carolyn Kane (Toronto Metropolitan University) and Prof. Sven Dupré (University of Utrecht and Amsterdam) will join the above artists in discussing these themes and how they can be explored using new interdisciplinary methods.
