With Your Eyes Only is an experimental project, which analyses the elements of perception in a collage of artistic interventions and objects. Within the frame of reductive art, levels of perception and the mechanisms of observation are questioned in a multidisciplinary, playful approach. Starting point are the phenomenological conditions of the artistic production like color, light, material and time which influence the structure and content of the reductive works and wherein exemplary questions related to perception open up. Visual structure is given to the artistic interventions by an architectonic display which refers directly
to a changing spatial experience through its staging qualities and, at the same time, is a platform for the presentation of different perceptual levels.

Participating artists: Greet Billet, Kjell Bjørgeengen, Alexandra Dementieva / Aernoudt Jacobs, Ward Denys, Clemens Hollerer, Simon Ingram, Leopoldine Roux, Esther Stocker, Tilman, Pieter Vermeersch, Dan Walsh, Carrie Yamaoka
