The artist as a midnight cleaner. Dust might be everywhere, neither near nor far. Whenever you enter a space, dust will find its way. Even if nobody wants it, everybody knows it is there.
   ‘Gather’ alludes to something which has a vast, decisive, and preordained goal — whereas dust indicates an open, unanswered, undecided structure. Gather ‘Like Dust’ refers to the act of converging something which, in its essence, can not be reduced to this type of rational act. Something which is almost too diffuse, too relentless and too incoherent to be led by the seducing charm of gathering.
    Yet we gather here the idea of dust, as being something that is defined by non-dust, by the space between these separate particles. This distance creates the openness to re-approach these elements and let them co-exist once more. In such, the artistic practice, as well as the act of exhibiting and spectating is like gathering dust, redefining the world, rethinking our reality.

Gather Like Dust is a group show with works by Justin Somjen, Finn Theuws, Arnaud Eubelen, Mathias Mu, Julia Dahee Hong and Justine Grillet.
    The exhibition was brought together by the Antwerp collective, BOX22, and the Brussels collective, Medusa. Both are led by a young team of artists and curators. The collaboration instigated out of a remarkable parallel, both collectives being nomadic off-spaces that look to create and provoke a new perception on contemporary art by using exhibitions as a medium in itself and by intensively collaborating with artists. When these two collectives found each other they brought together six artists, to gather them like dust.
