Named after the young German artist currently in residency at WIELS Monika Stricker, who is staying at the CAB
during this time, the coming exhibition hosted at the CAB, with the commissioning help of WIELS, will reflect on the issue of the artistic creation process within a situation of residency.
How do the collective and individual aspects interact within the common space of an artistic residency? What are the challenges linked to the presence of a group when creating a work of art supposed to embody an intimate and singular form of expression for the artist? How to accept the others and their research as inevitable resources for your own work? The 11 residents of WIELS will try to answer those questions through the MONIKA STRICKER exhibition, opening in September at the CAB.
During the exhibition, the artist Monika Stricker therefore becomes an object, or rather a subject, a substitute to the individual creation of her various co-residents. The MONIKA STRICKER exhibition becomes a place where the experience of residency turns into a confrontation with others. Where the presence of others is a necessity and the initiator of artistic creation.
