The idea is to present art by different artists in a collective installation inspired by a kickboxing school.
This results in works hanging from the ceiling like punching bags.
Those who expect the smell of adrenaline and sweat or the sounds of banging and aggressive physicality will find a colourful playfulness without sound or smell instead.
It is this playfulness that tries to lure the viewer into looking at the objects from different angles and to be in very close contact with them.
The floor, though based on kickboxing practice, provides a welcoming softness and warmth that absorbs the sounds of the visitor’s footsteps and movements.
In spite of the collective’s somewhat negative sounding name, its presentation is quite catching and engaging.
