Ad de Jong presents new work under the heading ‘Receiving Radiant Spaces’ at Annette de Keyser Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium
29 April 2010, 18:00 – 21:00
(Quoted from Ad de Jong’s website)
Ad de Jong shares with this gallery a belief in the possibility of a radical change in the art-world. It is on this basis, rather than as some sort of gimmick, that it was decided to give away part of the exhibition to its visitors. The reasoning is that, if the act of receiving mirrors that of giving, the receiver is brought as close to Ad’s art as it is possible to get, and one of the essential elements of this art is tearing down boundaries. This enables responsibility and involvement to grow and production becomes generosity and possession participation.
