Activation sessions in presence of the artists: Saturday 7 & 14 March, between 14:00-16:45

Fake Calligraphy is a sculpture that can be activated as a working place to create batik patterns inspired on writing. Since 2016 Fake Calligraphy has been developed by Ada Van Hoorebeke and Maartje Fliervoet with participants and Manoeuvre art center for craft, co-creation and diversity in the Rabot in Ghent. Previous activations of the sculpture took place at Wiels in Brussels and CC De Ververij in Ronse. For Fake Calligraphy #4 at Kunsthal Gent, the sculpture is adapted to the context of the Kunsthal and its past as a monastery. A number of working tables in co-creation with Kato Six are integrated in this setup. In addition to a working environment in full activity, previous cycles of Fake Calligraphy can also be seen at the Kunsthal.

The collaborative sculpture Private Fountains – Public Baths (Six/Van Hoorebeke, in dialogue with guests) suggests a meandering of matter and ideas. Somewhere along the garden hose, between dye-bath and stamped sign, personal authorship dissolves into an exchange on routines of household industry. Creating a synecdoche par excellence: the whole gets confused for its separate parts. (Manifold Books)

Framing a Wheel Well

Fender is the American English term for the part of an automobile, motorcycle or other vehicle body that frames a wheel well (the fender underside). Its primary purpose is to prevent sand, mud, rocks, liquids, and other road spray from being thrown into the air by the rotating tire.

Daisy Chain

If I went to a "car salon," I would expect to see a fleet of pink vehicles with flowers painted all over them and with nice little bows tied to their ...
This installation has a front and a back. The front side shows time like a theater or a ticking clock. The inside mechanics run on pomegranate peals. We drink they grow because desert takes over. They dry to make dye. 
Thank you participants for joining How to Make a Daisy Chain - Batik Session and make the work tick as a clock run on sweat, chains and flowers.
