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.
