Opening 22 January
We are pleased to invite you on 22 January to the opening of two new exhibitions by Peter Rogiers (main floor) and Josephine Pryde (second floor).
The Belgian sculptor, Peter Rogiers, has based his new exhibition on â€œCreatorâ€, a comic and animation film he has been working on for the last 3 years. All sculptures, etchings and relieves in the exhibition are inspired by characters and scenes from the script. But, although the works are figurative and somehow recognizable, their setting in the exhibition will not create any narrative. They remain autonomous works of art, which illustrate Rogiersâ€™ primary interest in sculpture and its manifold, plastic qualities.
In her work, young British artist, Josephine Pryde deals with the specific characteristics of photography.
â€œThe Kiss of the Museâ€ documents the disintegration of a pile of chemical substance in a series of 16 images. It is an example of time-lapse photography, which reminds us of the technical experiments of earlier days. Prydeâ€™s perspective is nevertheless different from modernist photography. The experiments and distortions become part of a conceptual meta-level. Formal properties of early photography enter her work with all their historic loadedness and include, as such, commentaries on later developments and newer media.
