Ghislaine Leung – VIOLETS 3
an exhibition within the scope of the project ALIAS. realised in collaboration with Alicja Melzacka VIOLETS 3 is the third episode of Ghislaine Leung’s long-term project, developed for Netwerk Aalst. While VIOLETS 1 and 2 were directed inwards, at Netwerk Aalst, and prompted self-reflection on, and dissection of its institutional body, this episode turns outwards, towards the city of Aalst. Utilising and inverting the organisational infrastructure of Netwerk Aalst’s concurrent Alias project, the score for VIOLETS 3 opens a recirculation of goods and relations. Whilst Alias brings artworks out of the gallery and into civic life, VIOLETS 3 completes this cycle by bringing civic objects from these institutional partners back into the gallery.
