STEFAAN DHEEDENE

35 SYNONYMS FOR 'HAMMERED INTO', A FAMILY PACK OF YOKES, ONE PUDDLE, ONE DRINK, AND A FIRM PROMISE OF FUTURE SCHEMES

The show at Annie Gentils Gallery is the conclusion and relocation of a previous show that was loaned out to its visitors for a year. The previous show in Yuri G. Gallery in Antwerp displayed a total of 29 hammers in varying combinations of lengths, weights, heads and handles, and arranged in 9 wooden frames. Additionally, a total of 9 yokes in three variations, were displayed together on a stand.

 

The hammers and the yokes were loaned out to those who visited the show, resulting in an exhibition of empty frames and gaps. They served as a promise to meet at a future date, when the hammers would be returned.

 

During the opening weekend of actual exhibition, the loan ended and each hammer or yoke was returned to its original frame or stand.

 

The current exhibition includes, One Puddle, a "Single Shot, Single Tone", an installation in the form of a bar with one shot of whisky waiting for a visitor, and a conch to blow one single tone on, and a Firm Promise of Future Schemes.

 

A publication is available as a report of the loan.
