TICK TACK is a new destination for contemporary art in Antwerp and opened in May 2019. TICK TICK realises, presents and promotes international exhibitions and video art screenings, complemented with publications and an extensive digital archive.
Housed in the brutalist complex ‘De Zonnewijzer’ (The Sundial), a 1955 key work by architect Léon Stynen, TICK TACK occupies a historic duplex at a vivid city intersection, facing the tram stop and landscape park 'De Harmonie'. The 6-meter-high window functions as an interface between artists and audience, and between private and public space.
Their program is dual. By day, TT presents exhibitions, at sunset, the window transforms into a projection screen under the name CINEMA TICK TACK. It is a new and exclusive platform for moving image works. Reaching numerous of passersby and commuters on a daily basis, CTT serves as a channel, stimulating a connection in its urban setting.
Artists and collectives which have exhibited at TICK TACK include: Miyeon Lee, Bertrand Fournier, Jonas Maas, Manuel Burgener, Flurin Bisig, Joep van Liefland, Jason Gringler, Leo Gabin and Nam June Paik. TICK TACK has collaborated with the following institutions among others: HISK, Videodrome Paris and Argos Center for art & Media.
