Programme at TENT
If you are into video art, you should visit solo exhibition ‘Only Weeds Emerge’, by Rotterdam based Australian artist Pilar Mata Dupont. In three monumental video-installations, Mata Dupont examines the latent presence of colonial legacies in contemporary culture and in the natural landscape. You can also explore group exhibition ‘Who do you think you are?’, initiated by singer-songwriter Sabrina Starke. Take a step back from the festival site and dream away in the clouds of French design duo Mickaël Martins Afonso and Caroline Escaffre-Faure, watch the showcase of young singer-songwriters in the installation of Jasper Niens, or come closer to your own identity and make yourself a part of artwork what made me by Dorota Grabkowska.
