NOT EVERY FLAG HAS THE SAME SHADOW
In September 2018 LMNO will present two solo exhibitions by VOID, an artist duo founded in Brussels in 2013 by Arnaud Eeckhout (Belgium, 1987) and Mauro Vitturini (Italy, 1985). Fascinated by the invisibility and immateriality of sound, VOID gives shape to this absence through a multidisciplinary practice that goes from installations, sculptures, videos, drawings to texts, performances, books and public space interventions. VOID’s constant challenge is to approach sound as a medium to read and represent reality, and use it the same way a painter could use a colour or a brush.
Not every flag has the same shadow is the title of the exhibition that will inhabit the space of the LMNO gallery, with an immersive installation that addresses the question of collective identity and the symbols that contribute to build it. Monuments, flags, blazons, hymns, pledges, ceremonials, objects… In addition to their functional interest, these fictional devices generate a genuine visual, sonic and performative language of their own. VOID’s investigation tries to deconstruct and question both their function and their syntax, questioning by extension the nature of that intimate but collective feeling of identity.
