homesession invites: Juan Duque 's project presentation, 06/03 - 7pm

Juan Duque and homesession will have the pleasure to present the intervention the artists's been working on during his residency: EVASION.

Juan Duque

Displaying objects and elements linked to a landscape iconic visual representation as well as to maps ideological representations, Juan Duque's intervention at homesession deals with the conception of landscape as an interface between place, individual memory and chance.

The intervention in different spaces and places conveys for me a re-activation of the memory.
As a recurrent mark, every time I start a project, textures and images appear from the surfaces I'm working on. These recurrent marks remind me of landscapes that I have already experienced. Is it a topographical fixation or perhaps a predestination?
What we think will last forever, might stop some day... and new lines, reflections and layers will emerge, blurring the path. With my work at 'homesession art residency', I want to challenge the determined by implementing simple actions on simple materials.
Juan Duque

We're very pleased to invite you to join the presentation of EVASION on March 6th at 7pm.

When: March 6th at 7pm

Sabrina Harri and Juan Duque in FLAT_land, Delft (Holland) 27/12

Chance and Necessity. Let's say that chance has played a major role in that case, as there were no previous contacts between both artists. Let's also say that Europe is a microscopic playground.

Sabrina Harris (Finland) and Juan Duque (Colombia/Belgium), are the homesession next residents. They both form part of the final presentation which is going to be held at FLAT_land Project Space, in Delft (Holland).

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME Juan Duque Collaborative project with artist Jimena Kato Murakami.

FLAT_land was launched by Foundation id11, an art organization which offered three residences and project spaces in Delft for artists. The experiment led this year has allowed artists to take possession all year long of two apartment buildings and houses, which are gradually abandonned and are going to be eventually demolished for a newly build flat.


Artists are invited to realise projects on site or in relation with the neighbourhood. There's been a presentation of the projects every month. Final FLAT_land presentation will be held Sunday December 27th at 2pm with contributions of artist-in-residence, at Poptahof Delft. Finissage, surprising sounds and performances!

Where: Poptahof Noord, 1 - Delft
When: 27/12 2pm till late

Juan Duque in "De Collectie NUCLEO" exhibition, 4/12 to 27/12

Juan Duque presents works in a collective exhibition curated by Philippe Van Cauteren, the SMAK Director (Contemporary Art Museum, Gent) and Sjoerd Paridaen. Gathering the works of 42 artists, the NUCLEO exhibition has a central link which is simply the A4 paper.

Juan Duque's work focuses on "areas of intensity, disruption and uncertainty" that appear in his creations and process, "linked to behaviours such as interconnectivity, mutability, and interference." Playing with burnt paper, ink and A4 papers cut into two parts, Juan Duque works thus on the alteration he can introduces to the proper material he has been asked to use.

When: 4/12 to 27/12 (finissage at 4pm)
Where: Sint-Petersnieuwstraat, 21, Gent
