Gauthier Oushoorn is invited for a residency of one month at Kooshk Residency, Tehran, as part of the annual exchange between AIR Antwerpen and Kooshk Residency. Iranian artist Roya Keshavarz is invited for a residency of one month in AIR Antwerpen in August 2016.

The art of Gauthier Oushoorn is influence by his profond interest in the definition of space. Architecture is his recurring frame of reference while his trained craftmanship acts both as a utility and an obstruction. Through sculptural work he explores the elements to create space, which he simultaneously uses as the functional tools for its realisation. The consequences of primary choices he makes while conceiving the works are accepted and displayed as their essential parts.
