Looming is a residency program. Artists with a practice between visual arts and performance are invited to inhabit the exhibition space of the Fluxum Foundation and Flux Laboratory and reimagine it. Looming offers a space of research, creation, experimentation but also moments of interaction with the public.
The project does not aim to transform the exhibition space into a black box theatre, but to integrate performing arts as it is in a space that goes beyond theatrical codes. Although perfectly free in their proposals, the residents are invited to consider the constraints of the white cube and to question it.
The programmed artists share an ambivalence in their practice, bringing new possibilities of convergence between different fields: theatre, sculpture, performance and dance. An indistinct form, not yet here, Looming can refer as much to an already present reality appearing to the eye as to a distant vision.
- to appear as a vague form
- to come into view as a massive, distorted, or indistinct image
- a mirage in which objects below the horizon seem to be raised above their true positions.
