Apparatus 22 – “HOPE SANK TEETH INTO THE NIGHT” curated by Sergey Kantsedal at Closer Art Center, Kiyv.
the space is a large blackbox, set within a post-industrial complex, with a previous life as cult club (Closer, the iconic club is in fact hosting the art centre in one of their spaces that were used for rave until recently).
In imagining the exhibition we draw on a odd viewpoint: understanding the day(time) as extension of the night(time); An afterthought of the afterdark we shaped the exhibition “HOPE SANK TEETH INTO THE NIGHT” as a direct, yet surprising answer to the very unique setting of the Closer Art Center.
We were interested to reflect about how can we put the intensity, the feeling of unrest, the freedom of the (rave) nights at work to make some cracks in the ways our bleak reality functions.
