On January 28, Belgian artist and designer Pieterjan Ginckels of the collaborative SPEEDISM will discuss "TWO-FACED MF EASY RIDE," a new work currently on view in the Graham Foundation's exhibition, Treatise: Why Write Alone?

“TWO-FACED MF EASY RIDE” is a cruise through an architect's rendered theme park. Hyper-layered and immersive, SPEEDISM’s new dual channel video installation with sound and fog presents a possible anti-design method, revealing how embracing speed and the superficial as a condition might help construct alternative methods, tools, and modes of (re)production.


Pieterjan Ginckels is a Belgian artist and architect whose work concerns itself with the acceleration of modern life, which he explores through exhibitions and experiences that interweave spatial, artistic, and design practice, and everything in between. He studied architecture at K.U.Leuven, WENK Sint-Lucas Brussels, and Universität Stuttgart, and currently teaches at the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture, Brussels. In 2008, Ginckels co-founded with German artist and architect Julian Friedauer, SPEEDISM, which proposes anti-methods for an increasingly theme-based, spectacular, and accelerated society.


"TWO-FACED MF EASY RIDE" is produced by Pieterjan Ginckels, Aster De Valck and Hantrax.
