    While film is typically thought of as being essentially moving and immaterial, an infinitely reproducible collection of fleeting images and flickering light, sculpture, almost by definition, is a solid, obdurate thing, nothing if not the literal attempt to give form to matter. This group show investigates these seemingly opposing mediums and the growing interest among a group of young international artists to think through the specificities of sculpture and film by creating hybrid objects that respond to, inhabit and question both traditions at once. Indebted to the legacy of 1970s expanded cinema, the fantastic constructions on view at WIELS will explore the historical and material potentials of a dialogue between the moving image and the sculptural object.
