About KIOSK

Since 2006, KIOSK organizes a diverse exhibition program by both emerging and established artists. Each year KIOSK hosts four exhibitions focusing on contemporary visual arts, either solo or duo shows, with a strong emphasis on the creative process and the artist’s individual track.

After KIOSK started in a small glass pavilion, it is permanently housed in a former anatomical theatre on the Bijloke site in Ghent since 2010. It is located in what used to be the Clinical and Polyclinic Institute as realized in 1905 by Louis Cloquet, a prominent Belgian exponent of neo-Gothic architecture. The exhibition rooms originally served as an anatomical theatre. Behind the neo-Gothic brick facades, ingenious glass and metal constructions are hidden. The particular architectural nature of the exhibition space challenges artists to work with this environment in their presentation and to realize new projects.

KIOSK is an initiative of non-profit organization Kunstensite vzw and University College Ghent’s School of Arts.
KIOSK is generously supported by the Flemish Authorities and receives additional funding from the City of Ghent and the Province of East Flanders.

Sorceress blue/orange

Two-colour woodcut on paper

Signed and numbered on verso
Edition of 15 + 5 AP

The work refers to recurrent themes in Ulla von Brandenburg’s practice, such as the occult, magic, theatre and the trompe-l’oeil. Featured here is the sphere or crystal ball which in the world of sleight-of-hand and magic, is used to conjure an atmosphere of enigma and illusion. Von Brandenburg’s figure draped in striking colour blocks seems to be an abstracted contemporary and female variation on the illusionist with his floating ball as he was depicted in prints from as early as the 17th century.
 
Ulla von Brandenburg (1974, Karlsruhe, Germany) currently lives and works in Paris. In the spring of 2013 she presented her show 'Gleich Gleich Gleich' at KIOSK. Other recent solo exhibitions were staged at such venues as The Power Plant (Toronto), ACCA (Melbourne), Haus Konstruktiv (Zürich), Mamco, (Geneva) and Secession (Vienna). Her works have been included in shows at the Centre Pompidou (Paris), WIELS (Brussels), Witte de With (Rotterdam) and in the Sydney, Lyon and Venice biennales.

Fields on a Line

The edition consists of four color photographs, delivered in an acid free cardboard box.

Signed and numbered
Edition of 20 + 3 AP

Katja Mater exhibited at KIOSK in late 2014-early 2015, under the title of Fields on a Line. The work was conceived in a step-by-step capturing of the painting of the exhibition room walls and floors in four different colours, and the subsequent re-painting in white. The result was a 16 mm film installation, with the repainted white exhibition space serving as residue. This eponymous edition reveals the process behind Fields on a Line in a new, photographic way: the four photo prints portray the four exhibition rooms in their temporary coloured state.
