From 2016 Tatjana Pieters will share its space at Nieuwevaart in Ghent with Soft Focus Institute, a Centre for Artistic Wellbeing of Uninitiated and Devoted Beholders (CAWUDB) that seeks to invigorate the relation between contemporary art and community. SFI will be an ambulant, pneumatic and flexible meeting place for open non-ego experiments and ideas, focusing on the interaction between doers, thinkers, participants and beholders. The centre takes shape in the moment and as such responds to the changing structures in society. SFI researches expectations and patterns in the art world and strives for an autonomy across existing concepts like profit and non-profit. Next to the opening exhibition at Nieuwevaart, SFI will set up projects during Antwerp Art Weekend, Arco Madrid (with Fernando Gutiérrez Huanchaco) and Independent Brussels.
JUMANJI is an exhibition that evokes energy among people and tries to lead them to a general reflection on consciousness. Through the installation the beholder explores his or her own spirituality. The exhibition will be completed by a program of performances, film
presentations, public talks and a simple open kitchen.
