‘The Wave’ - Private Tag, Ostend, 18 Sept - 13 Nov 2016
29 Aug 2016
The Private Tag exhibition, the successor to Private Shelter (2014), is an initiative of arts centre Vrijstaat-O. based on the idea of ‘tagging’, or leaving behind tracks. Fifteen contemporary artists get to work at Raversyde and traverse the site with an impressive visual result. We combine this with trench art, decorative items made by soldiers in the trenches. The hand of the artist can be felt and seen in both past and present. The artists invite you to take a surprising route along paths, through tunnels, over bunkers and past other crossroads where they left behind their signature. Better tactile and manual art is back, although it was never really gone. This type of art will be interwoven with interventions and creations of performers and musicians sharing the same state of mind.
