ARTEFACT: UP IN THE AIR
EVENT HORIZON
Vincent & Lawrence Malstaf
Opening: Tuesday 9 February 2016
9 - 21 February 2016
STUK, Leuven (B)
Artefact is an exhibition and arts festival on contemporary visual culture, current events and societal challenges. With Up in the Air, we gaze upwards, to the sky. What does our sky consist of? Which phenomena play within? What does that space mean to us and how have we appropriated it? What will it mean for instance, for more and more drones to occupy the sky, and how do we as a society want to live with them? A hot topic, and subject to many heated discussions now that the European guidelines for civil use of drones are on their way. The exhibition aims to shed light on the poetic, political and economic use of our air space, presenting new perspectives on fields such as telecommunication, transport and ecology.

In an informal, salon-like setting, four artists/artist duos will talk you through their practice and their work in the exhibition, answering any (potentially critical) questions you might have.

BURNING ICE #9 - KAAITHEATER
TIPPING POINT
16 - 20 February 2016
Kaaistudio's, Brussels (B)
During BURNING ICE #9 Lawrence Malstaf presents an adapted version of Tipping Point. A large water-filled disc carefully balances on top of a steel support, tilting up and down. An air bubble slowly travels around, disrupting the disc’s balance. Malstaf shows how small changes can generate enormous consequences. The findings of the Norwegian Polar Institute were his starting point. They investigated the impact of human activity on the arctic ecosystem. Air and water are the main elements in this vast yet delicate thermodynamic process.

EAST
scenography for a dance-solo by Arco Renz
15 - 16 March 2016
Les Brigittines, Brussels (B)
What an amazing, obsessive show!

Drawing from fifteen years of creative experience between Europe and Asia, Arco Renz throws his body to create seemingly alien movements, yet part of our artistic and cultural background. 
EAST exposes and simultaneously shakes up the stereotyped portrayals of the differences between East and West. We are in another world, our body and soul engaged in a thrilling dialogue with the surrounding lights, the staging and the music played live.
The performance evolves inside a spheric installation by Lawrence Malstaf.

Festival VIA 2016: Perceptions
Nevel
Opening: Thursday 10 March 2016 - 19:00
10 - 20 March 2016
Le Manège, Maubeuge (F)
Nevel, a matrix of nine pivoting walls forms a labyrinth whose architecture continuously changes. A sequence of different compositions creates choreography of spaces flowing into one another. It is an auto choreographic space to wander and get lost in, like in a mutating city, to linger and surrender to the disorientation.

Folding
Opening: Saturday 19 March 2016
19 March - 8 May 2016
Kunsthall Grenland, Porsgrunn, (NO)
Lawrence Malstaf's proposal FOLDING stems from a research project on traditional origami techniques and contemporary 3D modeling software and explores the borderline between representation and abstraction. The aim is to accumulate a series of full scale kinetic sculptures based on 3D scans of the exhibition visitors. The sculptures expand and shrink according to motion patterns of the public in the space. Thus the visitors are reanimating the abstracted models of earlier visitors and create a responsive choir of breathing avatars. A metaphor for the blurring boundaries between animate nature and inanimate simulation and modeling technology.

Melting
scenography for a performance by Amund Sjølie Sveen
Première: 22 - 23 April 2016
BIT Teatergarasjen, Bergen (NO)
MELTING is an investigation of various questions related to the scientific, economic and psychological reasons for, and consequences of, our presumed current climate crisis.
If we accept that global warming exists and is manmade, what implications does it have for how we organize our lives and society? What happens when ice melts? What happens when economies melt? What happens when society, welfare, social relations, public art funding and human future melt? And afterwards, when everything is melted, then what?
