The Color In Shadow – Eric Thielemans
Talk / with Vooruit

Wed 14.02 → 20:00-23:00

What is present in the neutral space, a perfectly empty and quiet place, before you, as an artist, can create, achieve or exhibit work there? And what exactly are the characteristics of that vacant and quiet place? Those are the central questions that percussionist Eric Thielemans, the brand new music resident of (Kunstencentrum) Vooruit, tries to unravel through his innovative research project called ‘The Color in Shadow. A research for the subtle qualities of resonances in the spaces between things’. The ultimate goal: designing a manual in order to research empty rooms.

As part of his residency, Vooruit and Gouvernement plan four evenings during which Thielemans will engage in conversation with other artists and researchers about spaces and noise, accompanied by a live performance. Each evening will be registered through recordings, notes and drawings.

Guests for the first edition are sound artist and composer Esther Venrooy, visual artist Hannelore van Dijck and Niels Van Heertum as musical guest.

This evening is part of the research project ‘The Color in Shadow’ at the Royal Conservatoire and the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Antwerp.
