Searching for Balance by Hanneke Beaumont
In a fast-paced world filled with too many obligations and temptations, in a universe that empasizes materialism and instant gratification, many of us strive in our own way to recover a foundational sense of equilibrium, and through it a form of rest and contentment. Among others, these questions are echoed by Hanneke Beaumont’s new exhibition, titled "Searching for Balance", and introducing a dozen new works aong which some never previously exhibited.Artist profile
Sean Henry "Sleepers"
Armen Agop - TOUCH
In his second Brussels solo exhibition, Egyptian artist Armen Agop invites the viewers to do what is usually forbidden: Touch the sculptures. This new exhibition is about freedom. The freedom to touch the sculptures and, through this contact, the sculptures are given the freedom to move.Artist profile
LKFF invites you to rediscover and enjoy the atmosphere of an artistic salon – as one could have enjoyed at the “Belle Epoque” or even in the 18th century - where conversation, delicacy, art and luxury are king. Art lovers can sit together and enjoy a drink while comfortably seated in a fabulous design environment (in collaboration with Ampersand House) in which are installed artworks of the finest quality.Artist profile
Lucien Murat - Tidy Chaos
Lucien Murat is fascinated by the concept of the end of the world, its representation and its impact on the “collective unconscious”. His canvases are patchwork of carefully chosen old- fashioned classic decorative tapestries, sewn together. Under his paintbrushes, they are transformed into immense colorful tapestries, questioning the fantasized grandiose of chaos, constantly flirting between absurd and grotesque.Artist profile
Velasco Vitali - ARIA
The Balloon, the most simple flying machine ever invented by Man, is the starting point of "Aria", the new solo exhibition of Velasco Vitali. Well sewn fabric, a basket, hot air and ballasts to drop on your way suffice to create a flight, an adventure.
The Aria sculptures of Velasco Vitali are an interpretation by the artist of the Montgolfier's balloon. Aria suggests an «aerostatic» voyage, a story, an invitation. Do they symbolise a departure, or an arrival? Their slow take-off from the ground towards an unknown freedom always implies a narrative, a story to tell.
Following the impressive «Sbarco» (read «Disembarqment») of dogs, Velasco Vitali’s last solo show in Brussels (March 2011), the Italian artist is back in Brussels for a now solo show, presenting us a totally new body of work titled «Aria».Artist profile
