After Howl is a collective with a variable geometry which focuses on its own ecology and economy as the formation of a living group that works in a common space, in order to develop it as a fictional environment. Formed in 2012, the collective’s current members are: Arthur Calloud, Morgan Dulong, Miguel Gonçalves, Marie Sardin, Rémy Tith and Kamilè Krasauskaitè. Based in Molenbeek, Brussels, in an old soap factory since 2015. In this building on its three floors various activities of the studio are developed; lemon pies, scenography, concrete columns, roofing coats, bathroom furniture, recording studio, smoked fish, night-shop, life table, restaurant, patio. The studio has a central place in the operation of the collective. It is the place from which all ideas are born and in which the collective finds itself daily. The studio consists of 3 trays as 3 reading strata:
COOKING / SCULPTURE / EXHIBITION
SOJA/ CONCRETE / GREEN SCREEN
BROTH / COLUMN / PATIO
After Howl consists of 5 artists but can expand, depending on the project and the collaboration, extending to artists or curatorial satellite entities. The studio follows this same principle. The projects are only signed under the name of After Howl, simply because they are created in a specific context, always keeping an eye on the history of the collective. Archives, notes, and sketches are considered as possible beginnings or re-starts for more adventures, themselves considered as pieces; and are most often recycled, embedded in narrations or in fiction. That’s how a painting becomes a sculpture, or how a vital necessity like building a bathroom becomes an opening to other reflections on forms, architecture, politics and love. This retro-active loop creates a way of thinking about work as a document or super-document.
After Howl creates molecular landscapes with sculptures and structures inside the space. To come back, to meet, to visit, to take a look again. It’s a space of change, where different platforms reveal aspects of our daily routines and needs. MEETING OLD FRIENDS is shaping and sculpting the landscape of vitality, like a city, daring to act and to create the substructure in order to spread and share in all possible ways.
