‘Dublin Doubles’ is the third exhibition where Peter Morrens & Rik De Boe introduce the Belgian Artist Initiative VOORKAMER in which a gamut of International artists is presented with whom VOORKAMER worked during the last 17 years. The criteria the curators applied is simple; those artworks and artists are selected that broadly work with ideas of the double and the binary. Theirs will be a [visual] proposition to the question if they, as artistic leaders, will be perceived as curators rather than as artists. In a deliberate and emphatically disorientating way they use the context of the gallery space to determine how the project is presented. In Broadcast Gallery they will be presenting a cabinet of portable works by about 40 artists.
BROADCAST is a public gallery situated in the Fine Art department of the Dublin Institute of Technology.
The gallery supports the production, interpretation and dissemination of a broad range of activities within contemporary art practice, and creates a situation in which criticality can be integrated into the pedagogical development of fine art education. Programmed workshops and lectures run in correspondence with the concerns of the artist chosen to present work in the gallery, with a particular focus upon conceptual articulation of that work and the broader question of how artists occupy the space of research.
VOORKAMER is a Belgian artists run space in Lier just outside Antwerp. It is situated in a large 17th-century historical site in the center of this old provincial town. For the last seventeen years VOORKAMER has been run by Rik De Boe and Peter Morrens, two artists who sometimes collaborate on curatorial projects and occasionally work together as an artist duo. They are not fond of labels, categories, hierarchy and hype but value diversity and an antithetical position.
