FLIP by Kas­per An­drea­sen at KASK in Gent

FLIP — About Image Con­struc­tion
is the se­quel to the ex­hi­bi­ti­on Co­py Con­struct held at CC Me­che­len in 2017. Hosted this time at the KASK in Ghent, the ex­hi­bi­ti­on fo­cu­ses on dis­play­ing a
tem­pora­ry ar­chi­ve of about 300 artist’s books next to about a do­zen fil­mic works. ‘FLIP’, the exhibition’s tit­le, as­so­cia­tively re­fers to the per­for­ma­ti­ve ges­tu­re of pe­rusing through a book but al­so to no­ti­ons of image se­quen­ces, re­ver­sal (prin­ting), the flip­book, as well as to the use of text and image in both books and vi­deo works. In short, the ex­hi­bi­ti­on is an at­tempt to show the­se me­dia to­ge­ther, em­pha­si­zing the use of nar­ra­ti­ve stra­te­gies and image con­struc­tion as ex­ten­si­ons of each other.
The ex­hi­bi­ti­on will be ac­com­pa­nied by an ex­ten­si­ve ex­hi­bi­ti­on gui­de, de­si­gned by 6m56s, con­tai­ning a com­ple­te bi­blio­gra­phy of the dis­play­ed books and films.
