Let's Get Physical, interventions in and through the city

Let's Get Physical -Interventions In and Through the City takes its motive and aim from the continuously changing and evolving cityscape of the city of Utrecht. The pressure is up and so should the pleasure of dealing with our physical surroundings be. Through interventions in both private spheres and public domains, the exhibition addresses the urgent need to find relevant strategies. Not fast, loud, and superficial ones following the logic of the spectacle, but ones generating responses: clever and elegant, beautiful and intelligent.

Let's Get Physical brings together eight MaHKU students negotiating and navigating among and between the set parameters of interventions - within Hoog Catharijne and around its perimeters, performative and temporal acts take place subsequently transformed and translated into works of art installed in the Kapitaal gallery space.

The physical narratives shaped and made from the city, for the city, and articulated in the city, are interventions combining the international backgrounds of the participants with collectively shared actions in their current environment. Let’s Get Physical gains its momentum in and through the game of opposites. Loud becomes silent, aggression becomes empathic, and physical turns into conceptual - and back again. Here form follows pleasure and participation, interaction and intervention, and laughing at and laughing with.
