A Grey Space Weekend – Saturday

Sat 14 May

On the Saturday of the A Grey Space Weekend festival you can experience an extensive music program with live acts and DJs curated by Kantarion Sound, a solo exhibition by Karel van Laere.

A Grey Space Weekend

A Grey Space Weekend is an adventurous festival consisting of an extensive music program with live acts and DJs, an exhibition, performances, a performative symposium and film screenings.

Driven by the belief that major tendencies in the world find common ground in the relationships between people, this edition of A Grey Space Weekend will focus on the concept of radical relationism. In the program we aim to stimulate encounters between the public, makers and thinkers with backgrounds in different disciplines.

Below you can find the different programs weaving together A Grey Space Weekend.

Program Saturday

On Saturday you can experience the exhibition Reach by Karel van Laere and the Hyper Resonant Garden installation by Yota Morimoto and Jonathan Looman. We also welcome back the live interactive broadcasting performance by OUTLINE platform.

During the day a performative symposium takes place in the context of the Reach project, with performances and talks by Guus Bokkering, Simon Bus, Ellen ter Gast, Karel van Laere, Anke Smits, Raphael Vanoli and others.

In the evening Kantarion Sound will take over The Grey Space with live and DJ-sets on the ground floor and in the basement by C00, Dima, Geier aus Stahl, Gymnasty, Loma Doom, Low G Court and Sophie Du Palais.

Kantarion Sound

Kantarion Sound is a project by Ivan Čuić whose practice is based on a self-built modular sound system that he continuously develops. Čuić sees the system (including acoustic panels and smaller sound devices) as a tool for settings such as exhibitions, clubs, film festivals, audiovisual performances, sonic experiments and listening sessions. The Grey Space invited Kantarion SOund to takeover The Grey Space for the Saturday of the festival.
