‘Modular Models’ examines potential modes of exhibition making, thereby referencing the imaginative, sculptural and socio-cultural meanings of architectural models.
Space and image have long been the defining parameters of Shlyk’s and Van den Berghe’s collaborative practice. ‘Modular Models’ introduces a new chapter in their research into the embodied experience of these two elements. With their modular building sets, they have not only devised a practical tool to envision transformative spatial installations, but also a triggering method to study and play with photographic architecture.
Conceived as a work-in-progress residency at The Mothership in Antwerp, the exhibition invited visitors to activate and engage with the materials, opening up different perspectives and possibilities. In-situ interventions related their ongoing work to the modular mechanics of the peculiar gallery space.
In collaboration with Alexey Shlyk and York Bing Oh (Atelier Oh).
