FIRST DATE

FIRST DATE


Tramaine de Senna and Lisse Declercq


03 - 30 May 2021; also part of Antwerp Art Weekend 2021


Dinner and a movie, expectations, a dance between reality and fantasy. "First Date" marks the first collaboration between Lisse Declercq and Tramaine de Senna as a symbiosis of each other's oeuvres. Playing with the history of the Bernaerts space (former movie theater "Cinema Tokio"), layers of projection, and the construction of appearances, the exhibition examines personal histories in relation to pop culture and symbolism: distance makes the dream.
