Rehearsal # 4 ‘Dormant remains' is part of the exhibition White Horse/ Twin Horse by Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen.

Revital Cohen (UK) & Tuur Van Balen (BE) work with objects, installations and film to explore production processes as cultural, ethical and political practices. In White Horse / Twin Horse, the artists make use of De Brakke Grond’s theatre infrastructure to rehearse forms of exhibition in which research, process and outcome cannot be meaningfully distinguished. They relocated their entire physical and digital archives to the theatre space, where they will unpack the work in a series of repetitions in collaboration with two curators, a fellow artist and a theatre director. The theatre’s technicians, used to building and taking down productions every night, will reinstall the exhibition every ten days, activating and deactivating different parts. By ‘rehearsing’ the exhibition conditions surrounding the production process, both the artwork and its presentation are exposed and questioned.

Rehearsal # 4 ‘Dormant remains'  by Christina Li
The fourth run will try to chart the inherent motions of transmutations within and throughout the changing presentations of Cohen & Van Balen’s process-based investigations. It will draw specific focus on artefacts or ephemera that contour and inform their work, through which unlikely and otherwise elusive threads might come to the fore.

Christina Li is a curator working between Hong Kong and the Netherlands. She graduated from the University of Hong Kong with a degree in Fine Arts (Art History) and Comparative Literature, and completed de Appel Curatorial Programme in 2009. She is currently the Curator-at-Large at Spring Workshop, Hong Kong where she served as the Director between 2015 and 2017. Christina previously worked as a curator at Para/Site Art Space (Hong Kong) from 2005 to 2008, and was the Assistant Curator of Making (Perfect) World: Harbour, Hong Kong, Alienated Cities and Dreams, the Hong Kong Participation of the 53rd Venice Biennale.
