Jeroen Uyttendaele

A central theme in Jeroen Uyttendaele’s work is the tangibility and visualization of primal technological principals within a musical framework. This translates itself through the development of audiovisual instruments, installations and sound compositions. The possibilities of his self designed media are the main ingredients for compositions in time and space.

The enormous quantity of information which is daily absorbed often doesn't leave its digital module. Content is housed within slick housings, lcd-screens or tiny speakers. Through electronic music, instruments and installations Jeroen searches for a form that is experienced as "real". A language that hides as little as possible but reveals and exploits all internal elements in a non-hierarchical manner. The nature of the material itself becomes thus a substantial part in the meaning of his work.



The exhibition presents recents works by four artists, Mats Dekock, Stijn Demeulenaere, Elias Heuninck and Jeroen Uyttendaele, who were in residency at Overtoon and Werktank in 2014 and 2015. The exhibited works share a particular interest in fleeting moments, which manifest themselves in fractions of sound and light.


Overtoon launches its activities of the year with an exhibition at iMAL, partner of Art Brussels 2013. The exhibition presents new installations combined with prototypes or work-in-progress produced by Christophe De Boeck, Aernoudt Jacobs and artists-in-residence.
