Wannes Missotten’s and Torri Nickmans’ “plug. 2” is an intriguing hybrid installation in which audiovisual threads form a scattered but dense loop carpet. In both the physical structure and the distributed digital narrative of their 'moquette' they present us with what could be called a form of 'imploded cinema' (as opposed to expanded cinema).
They challenge the viewer for an anatomic dissection of the dissolved remains of an imploded post-cinematic body, while cross-referencing archaic and de-funct Telstar-satelite communication and 21st century net-based mass media. At the vernissage the installation will host an obstructive performance by the sound-duo Kire Noisemachine.
Torri Nickmans (1993) and Wannes Missotten (1992) started to work together in 2014. Their backgrounds in graphic design and visual arts led to a collaboration in which they engaged in the mis-use of audiovisual software. Nonetheless, for their first group-exhibition S.W.I.M. (2015), they did not present moving image. There, plug. 1, was an installation as an investigation, a physical idea-sketch about the ways an artifact can behave in a space. Both artists live and work in Antwerp, where Wannes is studying in a master in Research in Art and Design.
