Does the value of an object survive the test of time?

Tamar Levit and Yaën S. Levi sought and found inhabitants of Kortrijk with a collection of, or a special bond with, objects. In their conversations, memories were brought out from under the dust, and along with the objects, stories of belonging came up. Thus raising questions on the (mental) space of storage as a territory with no time, where stuff is allowed to rest, fade, or potentially be forgotten.

With this work, they investigate the practice of gathering and keeping over the years. Some of these objects,  life stories and anonymous confessions come together in an installation that you can visit freely. The installation is built with and around the objects of the people they engaged in conversation with, and so in turn also forms a collection of objects. Bringing to the fore a fear for the future, or a nostalgia for the past. Reflecting trends, crazes, and emotions, but in the space where these objects are laid to rest, time may or may not stand still.

Tamar Levit (she) and Yaën S. Levi (he) graduated at the fashion department in Shenkar College (Tel Aviv), the A.pass Program (Brussels) and Jan Van Eyck Academie (Maastricht). They are based in the Brussels region. Their practice is defined by their recent explorations into the histories and appearances of wearable items, with a particular focus on uniforms, everyday clothing, and the common practice of wearing. Through installations, they expose personal stories or trace collective psyches, and stage the material, shape, and sensations they describe. Through a multidisciplinary practice, they seek to reimagine the boundaries between skin, garments, homes, technologies, class, pockets, machines, them, and us.
