PULSARPulsar (or Pulsar Facebook) is an initiative by artist David Wauters. Wauters uses an available gallery space in the center of Antwerp (close to Central Station) for a variety of exhibition projects. As an experiment, he invited a number of artists who, in their turn, invited some artists.
This resulted in a fluid and heterogenous non-collective with a core of 8 - 9 artists, aiming to produce a string of exhibitions at the Pulsar space.
Artists involved at the moment: David Wauters, Fia Cielen, Olga Fedorova, Lydia Debeer, Manu Engelen, Vincent Vandaele, Piotr Tolmachov, and me.
On a regular basis we meet and discuss our works, contemporary art in general, art and science, and and politics, and our own artist practice, as preparations for a next Pulsar show.
We involved evolutionary biologist Jan Verpooten, and are working on setting up a project at the University of Leuven, connecting art with science.
