Komplot, Place du Conseil 4 Raadsplein, 1070 Anderlecht

Gravity without heaviness is a multi-sensory installation inviting us to immerse ourselves in transparency and light, retinal and olfactory persistence, haptics and the sensation of touch. 
Phenomena governed by rigorous physical and scientific principles, they generate a spectrum of emotions that, for some people, is close to overwhelming. These overflows and notions of emotional and sensory hypersensitivity form the core around which Claire Andrzejczak deploys a series of tenuous interventions crystallizing the characteristics of the site. Considering the exhibition space as an organism with blurred contours, she reveals its minuscule vibrations, revealing an existence parallel to our own. Underpinned by a chiseled repertoire of statements and protocols, the works are developed through slow, meticulous processes of subtraction, leaving only the edge between reality and our subjectivities. This sensitive, empirical research underscores intangible phenomena, allowing us to apprehend them in a way that is paradoxically both persistent and fleeting.
