Ghost Town is a collaborative exhibition by London based, Corey Bartle-Sanderson, Oliver Durcan and Steven Gee, the founders of UK curatorial collective, IKO (It’s Kind of Hard to Explain). The title references a song titled Ghost Town originally produced by ‘The Special’s’ in 1981 then covered by Kode 9 & The Space Ape in 2009. The song narrates an apocalyptic urban culture where the youth have been ‘left on the shelf ’ and ‘all the clubs have been closed down’. 

This exhibition presents a parallel reality of today in Brussels, where COHERENT has closed and the building it occupies has been abandoned. Interventions and objects inside and outside the space take the form of artworks that camouflage into the environment, scenario and conditions set by the three artists. As a younger generation emerging into the industry, the project explores the functionality and the boundaries of permanent, physical spaces as a medium to present art.
