Fred Eerdekens & Mohammed Kazem | May 2013

Alongside this trajectory of choreographed stillness Eerdekens codifies the ephemeral using intangible elements of light and shadow and renegotiates space in elegantly crafted sculptural works that comprise fluid linear forms to create playful phrases.

The intricate lines of metal sculpture are rendered legible when light is cast on them, to reveal a reflection or shadow with a playful phrase. Taken as a whole, these works are not simply about representation and signification; rather they are kinetic and charged with expression and experience that
supersedes any fixed meaning.

As such the exhibition demands an active mode of looking by the viewer, whose gaze is imperative to activate the object and elicit the inherent potential of the works. This interactive space
that permeates between the artwork and the viewer gestures to a captured volatility that reflects the rhythm of complex social interactions and systems of meaning that inspired the works.

Whether it be the complex geopolitics of land and identity, the social sphere of industrious medical workers, or the rhetoric of everyday speech the exhibition as a demands a gaze that is not simply a distant mastery of the object but a haptic mode of looking that understands and experiences the artworks to reconsider the world around us and our own relationship to that world.

By presenting the works of these artists in dialogue with each other we reconfigure the limits of what constitutes meaning; in this instance a form of knowing predicated on touching and feeling, seeing and knowing.

Fred Eerdekens is a Belgian artist who for the past two decades has been exploring our environment and atmosphere, manipulating light, material and language in playful and complex installations that render presumed stabilities senseless and ephemeral.

His works become metaphors for the entanglement between reality and our individual conceptions of it, whereby both become ambivalent and yet palpable. Eerdekens has had solo exhibitions internationally for the past two decades. His work features in public and corporate collections worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, Bonzano, Italy, The Norton Collection, USA, the MUHKA, Musuem of Contemporary Art, Belgium.

A joint exhibition of his and Emirati artist Mohammed Kazem's works will be held at the gallery in April 2013. Mohammed Kazem (b.1969, Dubai, UAE) is a pioneer of contemporary Emirati art who creates conceptual explorations of the environment through works on paper, film, photography and installation.

Kazem's works synthesise the continuously evolving and shifting debates about modernity and the status of citizens within and outside their nation-­‐states. As well as participating in the biennials in Uzbekistan, Singapore, Egypt, Cuba and Bangladesh

Kazem's work has been presented in several editions of the Sharjah Biennial, winning first prize for his installations in 1999 and 2003. He will return for the 2nd time to the Venice Biennale this year with a solo presentation at the UAE National Pavilion.

The artists will both be available for interviews as of 1 April.
