Hana Miletić - Tenir Parolesread moreclose
Hana Miletić’s work collects, documents and questions contemporary phenomena related to cultural identities that take place in European cities. Documentary photography lies at the core of her practice, however, the artist no longer considers documentary photography to be a strictly photographic discipline. Miletić uses photography as a catalyst within the working process to create publications and installations. By introducing exchange andcollaboration into the artistic process Miletić establishes a dialogue that she considers necessary when engaging with a variable social reality.
During her residency at Lokaal01 the artist will explore the experimental potential of hip hop subculture through a collaboration with a collective of young rappers from Brussels.

Dukdalf - Lodewijk Heylenread moreclose
At the entrance of
Antwerp, along the E313 / E34 motorway, one is confronted with an exceptional urban landscape. Both the Singel and the Ring R0 flow here as a tangle together. A grand open field of asphalt marks the boundary of the city, the boundery with Borgerhout. A bridge from the parent railroad is unintentionally an atypical city gate through which all incoming traffic must pass.
This passage was for Lodewijk Heylen the perfect place to submit a project requested by Lokaal 01 for BORG 2014. By placing navigation elements into the urban context he marks this gate and creats a link between the city of
Antwerpand its harbor. It is a reference to the motorway and the urban lifeline that took over the archaic watercourse.
A dukdalf is a riveted pole work in ports, used to moor ships and to indicate the channel. Named after the infamous Duke of Alva (Duc d'Albe, 1507-1582), with its white collar and black robe. The role the Iron Duke played in the formation of the city and the split between the
Netherlandsand Belgium, with the boundary at Antwerp, is considerable.

Paul Schneider’s practice explores pre-existing images and familiar languages of efficient communication
Here the graphic, the sign and the expedient becomes a vocabulary and a subject matter. Objects of administration, materials and forms that often relate to the recording and documentation of everyday life are embraced and utilised. Here through continuous changes and translations in different materials, forms and scales; works move from images to objects, objects to images, posters to books, from vinyl stickers to photocopies, rooms are treated like folded pieces of paper.
This residency is in collaboration with RA Schools | Royal Academy of Arts London
Opening Friday 22 August 7-10 PM

In 2015, Lokaal 01 Antwerp will once more be hosting at least 5 different art projects. These projects will be developed during work periods that last a maximum of 5 weeks, according to the needs of the project.
Lokaal 01 Antwerp offers selected artists a project space of about 100 m2 and provides a basic living accommodation and a small production budget. Following each work period an exhibition takes place. Moreover, during each residency a public talk with the artist at work is being organized. We provide assistance during the pre-production of the work period, according to the needs of the project (material production, logistics, information research, etc.). As a post-documentation we publish a yearly catalogue in which all interesting information on the finished projects is gathered.
Although our project and exhibition space is one of our most important assets, we also encourage projects that act beyond the borders of our exhibition space and institution.
When formulating the motivation of your project, please try to situate, on your own terms, your artistic practice and the project itself in relation to a wider context of urgency and relevance (in terms of - for instance - society, power, capital, etc.).
