« Nine slim aluminium signs, black printed ink held within a gloss coated surface finish, offset from the wall by a slim metal fixing structure. The line of slightly over-small signs is hung low, spaced equally and unequally, at an approximate picture height for a young girl. A centred white round metal speaker grill inset into the wall outputs songs broken and undercut by a hard tone, high and pitched at the core base of the body. »


Artist and writer Ghislaine Leung, lives and works in London and Brussels. From 2017-2019 she will be in long term collaboration with Netwerk, Aalst. Her collection of writings Partners is forthcoming in 2018. « For Leung, an interest that shifts away from the art object proper towards the means of production and distribution does not signal material dissolution. Rather it drives a reconceptualisation of context in its entirety. This manifests as the distinct consideration of all architectural and interior features - walls, floor, lighting, typefaces, sound and ambience - those attributes that condition seeing and moving through a space. » Ming Lin, Art Review Asia, Spring 2017.
