save the date
Nona is proud to announce the 10th anniversary edition of the Contour Biennale for the Moving Image. C0N10UR starts in exactly one year and runs from September 8 to November 5 in 2023 and is curated by Auguste Orts.
Auguste Orts is a Brussels-based production and distribution platform founded in 2006 and currently led by artists Herman Asselberghs, Sven Augustijnen, Manon de Boer, Anouk De Clercq and Fairuz Ghammam. Since years, they each have been exhibiting and screening their (audio)visual works internationally, including at previous editions of the Contour biennale (De Clercq and de Boer in 2005, Asselberghs in 2009 and Augustijnen in 2003 and 2013).
During C0N10UR, the five Auguste Orts’ artists will not present their own screen works. Instead, they will plug into the rich Belgian ecosystem of artists' film practices and contribute to its sustainable development by supporting new screen works that will be able to lead their lives well after the 8-week span of the actual exhibition. Orts resolutely opts for local embedding: the core artists of diverse origins invited to this festive C0N10UR edition reside in Belgium. Multiplicity is essential to this exhibition project: a gathering of artists and works in which different generations can coincide and various forms and formats of the moving image can enter into the conversation.
