Marres Currents #4 is a group-exhibition with artists who recently graduated in Belgium, the Ruhrgebiet, and the south of the Netherlands. As diverse as their practices are, this generation of artists shares an interest in storytelling, plot, myth, fact and fiction. The exhibition departs from the premise of the MacGuffin; a popular plot device used in cinema. Embraced by Hitchcock, the MacGuffin is a prop that has no other goal than to make the story unravel. It could be a phone call, or a mysterious briefcase whose contents are never revealed. It puts itself to service, making the story to take off but is discarded as soon as it is no longer needed. Time and momentum are crucial here. It is a play with the cycles of knowing, and becoming. Currents #4 perceives the exhibition as a scenario where there is room for transition, experiment, and prospects.
