*Feb 26th* Fraud, Absence, Impossibility by Aukje Koks & Ištvan Išt Huzjan

Posted on February 15, 2011


To conclude her residency at Wiels, Aukje Koks presents a project made in collaboration with the artist Ištvan Išt Huzjan, entitled ‘Fraud, absence, impossibility’,

In the context of their research, the two artists have been interested in understanding systems of intimate human relationships through basic structural concepts. Therefore they have been following general guidelines common to all various forms of structuralism :

1. A structure determines the position of each element of a whole.
2. Every system has a structure.
3. Structural laws deal with co-existence rather than change.
4. Structures are the “real things” that lie beneath the surface or the appearance of meaning.

Aukje and Ištvan Išt dissect constructs such as individuality and self-recognition within familiar social systems like a nation, a circle of friends, a family, an art world…

The two artists hope that a self-invented collaborative process will allow them to reconstruct the ego of The Two – The Two being a fully-grown creature communicating its existence while taking over the Project Room at Wiels.
