Suspended Temporality

Catriona Leahy, Katsutoshi Yuasa


Together with the City of Genk and the C-mine cultuurcentrum, FLACC invited Katsutoshi Yuasa and Catriona Leahy for a work period in Genk. Both artists reflect on the ever-changing economical situation in Genk and its impact on cultural phenomena. Catriona and Katsutoshi have a background in graphic arts and have a keen interest in the remains of cultural phenomena that have since lost their place in contemporary society. These can be both visual relics such as buildings whose function has been made redundant, but also old traditions that are slowly disappearing. Both artists spent several months in Genk drawing parallels between the situation in Genk and respectively Ireland and Japan. The development and demise of the coal mines, that shapes the city so much in the previous century, take a central place in the realised works. The realised works, together with older works, have been exhibited at C-mine cultuurcentrum.
