DIS|CONNECTED is an ode to times of isolation, how distancing oneself from the everyday creates depth, stillness and slowing down. It is a status that many artists seek during creation. How dissolution provides a connection to another reality. For some a blessing, for others a curse. Expect a series of multi-disciplinary and eclectic creations by Archipel residents and local artists, who found refuge in their work during this pandemic, exhibited at the former slaughterhouse site, on the ragged edges of the city. The site, disconnected from city life, freed from interpretation and free for the arts, but constantly narrowing and diminishing and teetering on an uncertain future between the encroaching construction zones. Experience how the artworks in this context generate new meaning for the wasteland and the derelict buildings. On the one hand different from each other by their individuality, on the other hand connected by the condition of the site. In the city or apart from the city? Does the connection with the city or the lack of it provide the inspiration for the artists who built their temporary workplaces here, or is it just the combination of both? Both the pandemic and the transformation of this piece of wasteland and all the movements in between are the input for this exhibition.

Davey’s work tells a story of abstract alienation at which you ask yourself how to deal with this confrontation. Do you see it as an experience or as an embrace? In his own words it’s rather a non-figurative art with little philosophy but contains a whole lot of emotion. This is mainly reflected in his geometric abstract work with characteristic horizontal lines, rectangles and dribbles. Once the idea is in his head, the process of preparing already started for weeks. So when the idea comes out it will be nearly finished.Abstractness is a feeling to him, a concept that has to be framed and where you have to distant yourself from reality. It can reveal fundamental values about reality. The excess of stimuli from the outside world presents obstacles. But Davey's work captures these impulses and offers us a new perspective.Davey was also present at Antwerp Art Weekend last year, when he received recognition in his work for the first time. He decided to frame his story in a book, small works of art, bundled for the first time. A 100-page book with photos, text and explanation, interview and podcast. They are signed and limited. Plan your day wisely and go and grab a copy of Davey's book!

This time me around, Semisalty investigates the cycles. Life and death, creation and destruction, transience and mortality, the lunar cycle, or just your average bicycle. Everything will be semianalysed, and amount to a performance where endless repetition becomes a pleasurable practice.
