Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert

Masterclass DIYShrines

Free masterclass by Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert on 22 March at Maakleerplek.

As part of the exhibition project As You Think So Shall You Become, Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert will give a masterclass on DIYShrines. This free masterclass is aimed at an audience of artists with a practice in visual arts, performance, and installation art.

Starting point of the masterclass is the work DIYShrines; a flat-pack version of a shrine or small sanctuary meant to be distributed widely for personal use. What is the sense or nonsense of contemporary rituals? What role can artists play in this, what impact can they have? How to navigate the balance between guiding through design and leaving space in participatory art practices? In the workshop we will search for answers through conversation and hands-on work with DIYShrines.

Curator: Karen Verschooren

Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank

Since 2012, Frank and Robbert go through life as the artist duo Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert. This intense collaboration forms the basis for their artistic practice and symbolizes their vision on friendship, collectivity, interplay and knowledge sharing. Together, they realise a multidisciplinary body of works, containing objects, prints, installations, videos, actions in public places and cross-over performances on the border between arts and theatre. With their works, they actively relate to the global society and formulate questions and poetical alternatives. Their work has been presented in solo exhibitions in a.o. Fred&Ferry Gallery (Antwerp), Croxhapox (Ghent), Netwerk (Aalst), Lage Egal Gallery (Berlin), Buda (Kortrijk) and Be-Part (Waregem), and in group shows in a.o. Baro Gallery (Sao Paulo), Charlama Contemporary Art Gallery (Sarajevo), Panthera Art Space (Brussels), Belvédère (Rotterdam), KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), Dr. Guislain Museum (Ghent) and BOZAR (Brussels).

They graduated with a master’s degree in visual arts from KASK Ghent in 2012. Since January 2021, they are represented by Fred&Ferry Gallery (Antwerp).
