Programme Futures Without... Graduation Show 2019

‘Futures Without...’ is the exhibition presenting the graduation works of the students of the MA HKU Fine Art programme.
This transdisciplinary graduation show features video, spatial installations, sound and visual experiences, drawings, objects and photographs. It also hosts a vivid program of daily performances.


The opening will take place on Thursday 4 July from 18.00 to 21.00 in BAK, basis voor actuele kunst.

‘Futures Without...’ synthesizes and emphasizes the student’s search for common ground, beyond merely sharing time and space within the institutional framework of an art school education. All the works in the show imagine what the world could potentially look in the future, depending on how the past is remembered and how the present is acted upon.

Artists: Ana Flores, Nandini Hasija, Filippo Giuseppe Iannone, Ziyu Jiang, Tammie Kang, Tatiana Kolganova, Ioannis Kouzapas, Ana Linhares, Ganesh Nepal, Katja Prins, Manju Sharma, Dan Armand Stancu, Manuela Viezzer, Shuxi Wang and Gilly van Zanten.

EVENTS AT BAK 4—18 July 2019

Every day, throughout the course of the exhibition, the participants of Futures Without… welcome you to a varied program of performances, readings, games and concerts. Please find more information and a detailed events schedule below.

Tammie Kang, time to times, 2019, performance with video projection, 15 min.
This performance revolves around the notion of time and the artist’s memories of her grandfather. Starting off by reading sentences from David Eagleman’s Sum, Kang aims to create an immersive space where different perceptions of time can be imagined. The performance presents a different kind of intimacy through storytelling and through the exploration of time as presented in the video projection.

Tatiana Kolganova, Being a part of…, 2019, participatory performance, 20 min.
How do we humans feel, perceive and understand our position within the natural environment? Are we external observers or are we part of that which we try to understand? This performance explores our everyday surroundings from different perspectives, opening up the possibility of experiencing reality in different ways.

Ana Linhares, On Constellations: Reading through the Gaps, 2019, 20 min.
This performance revolves around a collection of objects owned by members of a diplomat family who worked and traveled within former Portuguese colonies at the beginning of the twentieth century. Ana Linhares deconstructs this material and relating family narratives in search of alternative readings, interpretations and understandings of power relations.

Ganesh Nepal, This Man Who Is Called Man, 2019, 20 min.
In this performance, the artist will produce raw bricks with an original brick mold used in housing projects in Nepal. Whilst his hands are forming the bricks, Nepal will speak about migrant workers in their own words, describing migrants’ hidden emotions and the relationships that were broken in order to find work and survive. To stay true to their stories, Ganesh Nepal will speak in his native language, Nepali.

Manju Sharma, Please keep me with you at all times, 2019, reading-performance, 30 min.
This performance is based on the artist’s written work Citizens of Elsewhere. Sharma will perform the first pages from Part IV in dialogue with her suitcase sound installation. Reading the text out loud allows the artist to engage with the audience through storytelling. The sound installation interrupts the reading, mirroring current tensions in the ethno-geographical political environment in the UK.

Manuela Viezzer, Promise Me, 2018, game and participatory performance, 30 min.
Promise Me is a sculptural object that is also a game. During the performance, the game will be played by the artist and the audience. The players are invited to make a promise to perform a certain behavior in the near future that involves their eating habits.

Gilly van Zanten, Render Movement, 2019, performance and sound piece, 20 min.
On the 4th of July, Gilly van Zanten will render and carry out the movement of his artworks: their place, their presence, their state of being and their transformation. Along with these acts, he will perform a sound piece, which will be assembled by clarinet and keys (a modular synthesizer and Hammond organ).
Additionally, Van Zanten welcomes everyone to join a musical intervention on Friday, 5th July and on Wednesday, 10th July between 15.30 hrs and 19.00 hrs and to improvise together with The Im-provisation Group Amsterdam.
