The spread of a crack is halted by a hole

Artist in Residence | Hristina Ivanoska  | The spread of a crack is halted by a hole organised by Suns and Stars as part of European project Collective Domain of Cultural Memory (CDCM) |  Amsterdam, Netherlands 1 – 15 March, 2020

A model for an exhibition in process

In his book Seeing Dark Things, Roy Sorensen asserts that we see in the dark, we see about as much as we do in plain daylight. The spaces of research entered by Sarah van Lamsweerde, Luiza Margan and Hristina Ivanoska are dark spaces and therefore sanctuaries for objects hiding for light. These vulnerable objects can easily arouse protective feelings, however, their fear of light does not preclude robust potentialities.

The spread of a crack is halted by a hole is part of the artistic processes developed in the social, cultural and physical space of the Oude Kerk by Hristina Ivanoska and Luiza Margan, and of the IWO boekendepot by Sarah van Lamsweerde.

The spread of a crack is halted by a hole is organised by Suns and Stars in the context of the European project Collective Domain of Cultural Memory (CDCM). This project which previously took place in Skopje and Split is organised as a threefold in cooperation with Press to Exit Project Space and Slobodne Veze.

The CDCM project in the Netherlands examines artistic affiliations with collected and protected objects, to explore and reinforce unorthodox approaches and associations with cultural heritage collections. Suns and Stars has developed a programme containing a number of events: an artist in residence research project made accessible with a process exhibition, and a symposium working towards a publication.
