Periphery / Extra City
May 7, 2021 – May 8, 2022
Extra City Kunsthal
Antwerp, Brussels

For Periphery, Kunsthal Extra City commissioned six artistic projects for its new location in the former Dominican Monastery. Artists Meryem Bayram, Maëlle Dufour, Mekhitar Garabedian, Geert Goiris, Imge Özbilge and artist duo CMMC will enter into dialogue with the symbolically charged architectural space and each install a semi-permanent work in the periphery of the church and chapel. They will hide themselves away in aisles, forgotten back rooms and hidden interstitial spaces where their work can blossom in complete seclusion.

The selected artists have diverse practices, from performance to photography, installation art to animation. In collaboration with them, Kunsthal Extra City will take its first step in questioning, activating and investigating its new location.
