Atlas Unlimited (Act IV)
Curated by Michiel Vandevelde
Participating artists Karthik Pandian and Andros Zins-Browne
'Precarious Pavilions — Atlas Unlimited (Act IV)' is the third pavilion in a line of four. Each pavilion is being presented in a different city, season and created by a different artist(collective). This third pavilion settles down in Antwerp and is co-produced by Kunsthal Extra City.
Karthik Pandian and Andros Zins-Browne invite the public to take a walk in the Old Harbour of Antwerp. Guided by an audio narration produced in collaboration with Syrian sculptor Zakaria Almoutlak, visitors will encounter a series of sculptures that range from the monumental to the invisible. Issues of migration, history and scale motivate this work that leads visitors on a journey from an iconic port into the global imaginary.

More about the Precarious Pavilions
The 21st century is, and increasingly will be, characterized by far-reaching crises: Besides climate change there will be continuing financial and cultural crises. How do we think about architecture —the creation of space— within an unstable world? How can the notion of precarity offer a lens through which to rethink our way of living, not only in a negative sense but also in a positive one?
