“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see”. <br/> (René Magritte) <br/><br/> There is never anything that is exact when you talk about human nature. No one is alike - No one acts the same - No one wants the same. And no one will only have one kind of quality in their nature. It’s here the duality comes in. It’s a balancing act on life's great slack wire. Keep the balance in some way and you will go on. Loose your balance … <br/> In Nietcheze's view on duality, Man has two conflicting sides based on the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysis. The Apollonian side restricts human freedom, sets boundaries, follows rules... The other force of our nature is the complete opposite. The Dionysos force had no boundaries, no rules, no limits. Life is a complete celebration of existence. <br/> As individuals who want too enjoy life and be productive, healthy and free. We need to find the right balance and not let these forces come into conflict with each other so it destroys us.<br/> This new exhibition aims at presenting a careful selection of artworks which take us to the core of our humanity, to the complexity we witness in each and everyone. Ambiguous, dual, strange or even hybrid creations that might shed some light on some of our more hidden forces.More informations
Astrolomia, by Velasco Vitali
To Saturday 01/12
For his third solo exhibition in Brussels, Velasco Vitali takes un on a journey inspired by Marco Polo’s “Il Milione”(Book of the Marvels of the world). Il Milione is not the diary of a trip, but an oral story dictated 26 years after the Asian crossing, by a Marco Polo imprisoned in Genoa. It is an evasion through the imaginary labyrinths of memory, a mental and narrative invention in which the events remembered are still, inexhaustible and immovable images. Velasco translates them into solid but indefinite sculptures that suggest a journey and at the same time a scam: a lie by the memory, by the story, of an impossible to verify oral tradition that can yet inspire visions and be transmitted.Artist profile
