Lecture Mark Kent

This spring Mark Kent (1972, Cork, Ireland) developed and presented the sculpture 'Industrial Sound Recordings from Gemaal'. The artist created the work based on sound coordinates he registered at various locations in the Euregion. The result is a modular monument, that is put together in various forms, conform the respective sound recordings. Earlier this year the work was exhibited in AINCI Maastricht, IKOB Eupen, the Kraftcentrale Alsdorf and near C-Mine, Genk. The project was co-ordinated by FLACC within the framework of Gemaal, a cultural collaboration in the Euregion between the cities of Genk, Eupen, Maastricht en Alsdorf and is financially supported by the European Community (Interreg III). On Saturday 27 September the artist will give a lecture in FLACC, during which he will look back at the project and also discuss his earlier work.
For the occasion of the project a work is published containing an essay by Maria Jönsson.

Mark Kent

The modular sculpture ‘Industrial Sound Recordings from Gemaal’ by the Irish artist Mark Kent (1972, Cork, Ireland) will be in the inner court of the office building at C-Mine until the end of April. The artist creates the work based on sound coordinates he registers at various locations in the Euregion. Kent relentlessly stores the coordinates surrounding him and applies them to his designs. These patterns are mainly presented in three-dimensional forms such as mural paintings or in prints on canvas, wallpaper and textiles. For FLACC the artist ventured to create a three-dimensional pattern. The result was a modular monument that has been travelling around in the Euregion and has been assembled in various forms depending on the respective sound recordings. Earlier this spring the work was exhibited in AINCI Maastricht, IKOB Eupen and the Kraftzentrale in Alsdorf. A component of the installation will travel later on to Buro Leeuwarden, in the Netherlands. The project has been co-ordinated by FLACC within the framework of Gemaal, a cultural collaboration in the Euregion between the cities of Genk, Eupen, Maastricht en Alsdorf, and is financially supported by the European Community (Interreg III).

Industrial Sound Recordings from Gemaal

For FLACC the artist ventured into unknown territory and designed a three-dimensional pattern based on sound coordinates he recorded during a trip in the Euregio. This three-dimensional pattern consists of an industrially manufactured skeleton and skin structure.
