Over The Edges
Contributions by Jan Hoet, Giacinto Pietrantonio.
The wonderfully imaginative starting point for Over the Edges is the corners of city buildings. Corners are a city’s structural accents, reference points in the orientation of the city; a place to meet, and a place to literally bump into someone. Experimenting with this concept, Jan Hoet and Giacinto Di Pietrantonio gave over 55 artists access to the corners and edges of buildings in the old town center of Ghent. The result is an extremely varied group of works and installations. Participating artists are Mario Airò, Simone Berti, Dirk Braeckman, Cai Guo-Qiang, Maurizio Cattelan, Tom Claassen, Peter de Cupere, Wim Delvoye, Jimmie Durham, Olafur Eliasson, Jan Fabre, Belu-Simion Fainaru, Nicolas Floch, Alicia Framis, Giuseppe Gabellone, Alberto Garutti, Fabrice Gygi, David Hammons, Jonathan Horowitz, Huang Yong Ping, Carsten Höller, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Allan Kaprow, Kcho, Stefan Kern, Masato Kobayashi, John Körmeling, Atelier van Lieshout, Bernd Lohaus, Emilio Lopez-Menchero, Tony Matelli, Rita McBride, Juan Muñoz, Maria Nordman, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Avery Preesman, Philippe Ramette, Navin Rawanchaikul, Pipilotti Rist, Gert Robijns, Ugo Rondinone, Kiki Smith, Haim Steinbach, Brian Tolle, Keith Tyson, Angel Vergara and Sislej Xhafa.
