REAL / UNREAL
With themes such as identity, queerness, fantasy, and vulnerability, REAL/UNREAL is a multidisciplinary group show that balances between reality and imagination. What happens when the viewer's perspective gets challenged by a new narrative? One that deviates from the norm and raises more questions than answers? The exhibition takes you on a trip through video, photography, performance, sculpture, and painting while playing with materials, ideas, and subjects that are often overlooked, unspoken, or hidden. Works by Ndayé Kouagou, Ugo Woatzi, Anthony Ngoya and Gilles Mayk Navangi, curated by Magali Elali.
Ndayé Kouagou performed 'I'll only swallow my own fluid' during opening night, in which he discussed our contemporary connection with the world and the people around us. The exhibition ended with an artist talk by Ugo Woatzi about his awarded 'Chameleon' series.
REAL/UNREAL was part of Antwerp Art Weekend and ran from 25 May - 11 June 2022 at fuggerstraat26. District Antwerp supported the show.
