Students Luca School of Arts C-Mine @ Z33

Photography students from Lucas School of Arts, Campus C-Mine are busy to get their work done against the finissage of manufactuur 3.0. @ Z33.

They were pushed out of their comfort zone to experiment with the boundaries of contemporary photography.

We live in a world where the digital image is omnipresent. Most images are only observed via a bright screen and have almost no physical or tactile qualities any more. That’s why it is interesting to look at what we have lost in our digital photographic process. This project is a search for the materiality and limits of the medium. It is an invitation to search through and experiment with analogue or new techniques for a new contemporary visual language that is both visual and physical presence.

Participating Students: Jonas Vrancken, Pauline Poelmans, Lennert Deprettere, Deborah Digneffe

Mud and Clay

Deze week gingen we samen met Veerle Tytgat op zoek naar modder en slib die ze zal gebruiken om stoffen te kleuren.

Veerle Tytgat gebruikt de natuur als medium om textiel te verven. Naast haar zoektocht naar grondstoffen op basis van planten, graaft ze dieper de bodem in. Welk kleurenpallet zit verborgen in onze aarde?

De verscheidenheid in bloemen, vruchten en andere planten zijn meer zichtbaar dan de variaties in onze grond. Ze experimenteert in haar onderzoek met lokale met plantenextracten, verschillende soorten modder, slib en klei. Verven met natuurlijke materialen is complexer en onverwachter dan met synthetische verfstoffen. Systematisch onthullen kleuren zich, niet wetende welke de resultaten zullen zijn.

Manufactuur 3.0, Hasselt, 30.09.2016 to 08.01.2017

With MANUFACTUUR 3.0 Z33 searches for new production models in a fast changing world. Digital revolutions, ecological awareness and shifts in the fields of work and labour encourage us to rethink the traditional industrial production model. MANUFACTUUR 3.0 brings designers and artists together to work around alternative production scenarios. The exhibition functions as a production platform, continuously in progress.

Z33 induces diverse international projects on living and working in a (small) urban context. A network of designers and artists has been creating new methods for production and cooperation. With MANUFACTUUR 3.0 these new insights now come to Hasselt and Genk. The dynamic exhibition format shows the changing role of the designer and artist as active producers in a city.
