Belgian Cameroon artist Pascale Marthine Tayou. The exhibition BOOMERANG reveals Tayou&rsquo;s monumental work of colourful linen, organic materials, wood, crystal figures and found objects. With his works, the artist address the ways in which we develop a national, geographic, financial and emotional identity in times of mass consumption. Tayou constantly draws similarities and differences between the many cultures and communities he has lived and worked among, and challenges us to do the same. Julia Peyton-Jones, Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, with Co-Director and Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist have said about Tayou&rsquo;s work: "His ingeniously crafted creations are imbued with a strange and alluring magic that has the power to bind us all".</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Treed binnen in een universum van fabelachtige beesten en mysterieuze verschijningen van de Belgisch-Kameroense kunstenaar Pascale Marthine Tayou. De tentoonstelling BOOMERANG onthult Tayou&rsquo;s monumentaal oeuvre van kleurig linnen en organische materialen, hout, kristallen figuren en gevonden voorwerpen. Met deze werken kaart de kunstenaar de manier aan waarop mensen een nationale, geografische, financi&euml;le en emotionele identiteit ontwikkelen in tijden van massaconsumptie. Onophoudend zoekt hij naar de overeenkomsten en verschillen tussen de vele culturen en gemeenschappen waarin hij heeft gewoond en gewerkt. Hij daagt ons uit om hetzelfde te doen. Julia Peyton-Jones, directeur van de Serpentine Galleries in Londen en co-directeur en curator Hans Ulrich Obrist zeggen over Tayou&rsquo;s werk dat &ldquo;zijn vindingrijke creaties zijn doordrenkt van een vreemde en verleidelijke magie die de kracht heeft om ons allen te verbinden".</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Laissez-vous emporter par l&rsquo;univers peupl&eacute; d'animaux fabuleux et d'apparitions myst&eacute;rieuses de l'artiste belgo-camerounais Pascale Marthine Tayou.

Il nous invite &agrave; faire de m&ecirc;me. Selon Julia Peyton-Jones, directeur, et Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-directeur et curateur de la Serpentine Gallery &agrave; Londres, les cr&eacute;ations de Tayou sont &laquo; inventives et impr&eacute;gn&eacute;es d'une &eacute;trange magie qui a le pouvoir de nous relier les uns aux autres. &raquo;</p> Wed, 03 Jun 2015 07:48:37 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list Mekhitar Garabedian - Bozar - Palais des beaux-arts de Bruxelles - June 24th - September 29th <p style="text-align: justify;">The Armenian artist Mekhitar Garabedian was born in Aleppo (Syria), grew up in Beirut (Lebanon) and now lives in Belgium.

This event concentrates on projects that are either still being designed, are in the process of being built, or have recently been completed. Models, installations, plans, photographs, and videos highlight the key aspects of each project and reveal the practice's distinctive features, such as rethinking the requirements of a project, coming to terms with the existing context, and experimenting with the limits of the discipline of architecture. Bearing witness to the importance of collaborative work, V+ 2014-2015 also celebrates contributions by Simon Boudvin, Maxime Delvaux, Rotor, Lo&iuml;c Vanderstichelen, and Jean-Paul Jacquet, among others. More than a retrospective, this exhibition takes you behind the scenes of major projects. As V+ has designed the offices of the new MAD Brussels Mode and Design Centre, there is a link between the V+ 2014-2015 exhibition and the exhibition devoted to Belgian fashion, The Belgians: An Unexpected Fashion Story, which you can see at the Centre for Fine Arts this summer. <br /> <br /> Curators: Sophie Dars and Carlo Menon<br /> Associated Architect: Sara Cremer (V+)<br /> Guests: Simon Boudvin, Pierre Chabard, Maxime Delvaux, Sonia Dermience, Marcel Jaradin, Rotor, Trans Architectuur, Lo&iuml;c Vanderstichelen &amp; Jean-Paul Jacquet<br /> Graphic Design: &Uuml;berknackig</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">BOZAR ARCHITECTURE en A+ Architecture in Belgium pakken uit met V+ 2014-2015, de eerste solotentoonstelling over het architectenbureau V+. Deze tentoonstelling richt zich op projecten die in de ontwerpfase zitten, in de stellingen staan of recent zijn afgewerkt. Maquettes, installaties, plannen, foto&rsquo;s en video&rsquo;s belichten de krachtlijnen en onthullen wat V+&rsquo;s werk bijzonder maakt: het verplaatsen van de zwaartepunten van een project, de wisselwerking met de omgeving en het aftasten van de grenzen van de architectuur. Om het belang van samenwerking te onderstrepen nodigt V+ gasten uit als Simon Boudvin, Maxime Delvaux, Rotor, Lo&iuml;c Vanderstichelen en Jean-Paul Jacquet. Met hun ontwerp van de bureaus van MAD Brussels, het nieuwe Centrum voor Mode en Design, slaat V+ 2014-2015 een brug naar de modetentoonstelling The Belgians.

Marie de Montalte is the protagonist in his cycle of novels about a designer of that name who became famous for her dresses made of honey and sorbet. The exhibition <em>The Belgians. An Unexpected Fashion Story </em>would not have been complete without her. At the request of BOZAR, Toussaint wrote <em>The Seasons</em>, a literary visitors&rsquo; guide inspired by fashion. He wrote literary portraits for creations by Belgian designers. Fact and fiction intermingle. De Montalte comes to life and legendary figures like Ann Demeulemeester, Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Walter Van Beirendonck and Dries Van Noten are elevated into the realm of fiction.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">De Belgische schrijver Jean-Philippe Toussaint deed ons op een andere manier naar mode kijken. Marie de Montalte is het hoofdpersonage uit zijn gelijknamige romancyclus, een ontwerpster die wereldberoemd werd met jurken van honing en van sorbet. Zij mag niet ontbreken in de expo <em>De Belgen. Een onverwacht modeverhaal</em>. Op vraag van BOZAR schreef Toussaint <em>Les saisons </em>(De seizoenen), een literaire bezoekersgids ge&iuml;nspireerd op mode. Hij schreef literaire portretten bij creaties van Belgische ontwerpers. Feit en fictie vermengen zich. De Montalte komt tot leven en legendarische figuren als Ann Demeulemeester, Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Walter Van Beirendonck en Dries Van Noten worden tot fictie verheven.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Dans son cycle romanesque <em>Marie</em>, l'&eacute;crivain belge Jean-Philippe Toussaint propose un nouveau regard sur la mode. Le personnage principal, Marie de Montalte, est une styliste internationalement reconnue pour ses robes en miel et sorbet. Elle avait donc sa place dans l'exposition <em>Les Belges. Une histoire de mode inattendue</em>. &Agrave; la demande de BOZAR, Toussaint a r&eacute;alis&eacute; <em>Les Saisons</em>, un guide litt&eacute;raire du visiteur inspir&eacute; par la mode. Il a &eacute;crit des portraits litt&eacute;raires &agrave; partir de cr&eacute;ations de stylistes belges, &agrave; la fronti&egrave;re entre r&eacute;alit&eacute; et fiction. Le personnage fictif de Marie de Montalte prend vie, tandis que des figures l&eacute;gendaires telles qu'Ann Demeulemeester, Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Walter Van Beirendonck et Dries Van Noten entrent dans le domaine de la fiction.</p> Wed, 03 Jun 2015 07:41:47 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list Jean-Philippe Toussaint - Bozar - Palais des beaux-arts de Bruxelles - June 5th - September 13th <p style="text-align: justify;">This summer at BOZAR the Belgian writer and artist Jean-Philippe Toussaint is presenting his new short film <em>The Honey Dress</em>, which is based on a scene from his latest novel <em>Nue</em> (Naked). The film was shot in China and is about a dress made of honey designed by Marie de Montalte. This fictitious designer is the protagonist in Toussaint&rsquo;s famous <em>Marie</em> cycle of novels. Appearing at the same time will be Toussaint&rsquo;s fashion-inspired literary visitors&rsquo; guide, <em>The Seasons</em>, a hymn to the woman as an object of desire and an ode to fertility.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">De Belgische schrijver-kunstenaar Jean-Philippe Toussaint stelt deze zomer bij BOZAR <em>The Honey dress </em>voor. Zijn nieuwe kortfilm is gebaseerd op een sc&egrave;ne uit zijn jongste roman<em> Nue </em>(Naakt). De film werd opgenomen in China en gaat over een jurk van honing, ontworpen door Marie de Montalte. Deze fictieve ontwerper is het hoofdpersonage uit Toussaints beroemde romancyclus <em>Marie</em>. Tegelijk verschijnt <em>Les saisons </em>(De seizoenen), een literaire bezoekersgids, waarbij Toussaint zich laat inspireren op mode.

These are three keywords that are usually associated with Belgian fashion, which is internationally recognised. This exhibition gives a unique historic overview of the DNA of Belgian fashion, starting with the legendary Antwerp Six (including Dries van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and Ann Demeulemeester) and working up to the individualistic creations of Martin Margiela, A.F. Vandevorst and Raf Simons. The exhibition also highlights the works of several influential players in various fashion and art disciplines. We will also touch upon the importance of the fashion academies, especially the Antwerp Academy and La Cambre in Brussels. Naturally this exhibition would not be complete without emerging talent like Jean-Paul Lespagnard and Christian Wijnants.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Surrealistisch, avant-gardistisch en expliciet: dat zijn de sleutelwoorden van de Belgische mode, die internationaal een ijzersterke reputatie heeft. De tentoonstelling schetst een uniek historisch beeld van het DNA van de Belgische mode, van de legendarische Antwerpse Zes met onder meer Dries van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck en Ann Demeulemeester, tot de eigenzinnige creaties van Martin Margiela, A.F. Vandevorst en Raf Simons. Naast de gevestigde waarden worden invloedrijke spelers uit verschillende mode- en kunstdisciplines belicht. We zetten ook het belang van de Belgische modescholen in de verf, vooral de Modeacademie in Antwerpen en La Cambre in Brussel. Opkomend talent mag uiteraard niet ontbreken, denk maar aan Jean-Paul Lespagnard en Christian Wijnants.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Surr&eacute;aliste, avant-gardiste et explicite : voil&agrave; les ma&icirc;tres-mots de la mode belge, qui jouit d&rsquo;une r&eacute;putation internationale.

An exhibition that immerses us in past and present, and gives us a glimpse into the future, of a Belgian family firm that started out in Schellebelle making corsets. <br /> <br /> PrimaDonna is an adept at harnessing the seductive power of graceful curves and large cups. So much is clear from the selection of elegant lingerie from 1865 to the present day. Always true to the centuries-old beauty ideal embraced by PrimaDonna, as embodied by the Venus de Milo.<br /> <br /> Entrepreneurial spirit, audacity and an innovative mindset are central to the brand, as shown in every facet of this exhibition. And it is still that eye for detail and quality, together with the unique craftsmanship, that links past and present and will continue to set the tone well into the future.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">&lsquo;La m&eacute;moire de l&rsquo;intime&rsquo; zet 150 jaar vakmanschap van h&eacute;t lingeriemerk voor &lsquo;curvy&rsquo; PrimaDonna&rsquo;s in de kijker. We worden ondergedompeld in het heden, het verleden en de toekomst van een Belgisch familiebedrijf dat ooit in Schellebelle begon als een korsetfabriekje. <br /> <br /> PrimaDonna schildert als geen ander de verleidingskracht van gracieuze curves en grotere cupmaten. Onder de hoede van de Venus van Milo, een eeuwenoud schoonheidsideaal dat dankzij PrimaDonna tot leven komt, maken we kennis met een opzienbarende selectie lingerie van 1865 tot nu.<br /> <br /> Ondernemingszin, durf en vernieuwingsdrang staan centraal voor het merk, dat zie je in elk aspect van deze tentoonstelling. En het is nog steeds de combinatie van vakmanschap en oog voor detail en kwaliteit die het verleden bindt aan het heden en de toekomst zelfverzekerd tegemoet treedt.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">PrimaDonna a 150 ans - &laquo;&nbsp;La m&eacute;moire de l&rsquo;intime&nbsp;&raquo; met en lumi&egrave;re 150 ann&eacute;es de savoir-faire de PrimaDonna, la marque de lingerie de r&eacute;f&eacute;rence pour les femmes aux courbes g&eacute;n&eacute;reuses.

Kassay re-drafts sections of stairwells back into models, creating a life-sized typology of severed spaces. Marking the sequence of the alphabet in which the artist's initials appear, the exhibition's title - <em>HIJK</em> - is also the result of a cut; not into built surroundings but the variable space of language. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Two architectonic sculptures create an axis through the exhibition. Identical in scale and colour, they are modeled on two different domestic interiors and bookend the gallery&rsquo;s stairwell. Devoid of stairs, and presenting no above or below, the works take the form of gutted corridors, dislocated from their function as a transition between floors. Instead of appearing as passages connected to one another, the slight differences between their dimensions and details mark the works out as elements within a typology: they are specific, yet interchangeable parts. While they adopt certain tropes of Minimalism &ndash; the reductive geometry, the monochrome white surface, the scaling to the human body &ndash; the works equally evoke the planar designs of digital renderings, seemingly outputted without haptic qualities. Connected only to absent places, these sculptures are suspended in an architectural uncanny between model and fragment, lived space and prototype. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">While the sculptures reframe the gallery's internal circulation, Kassay presents a series of wall paintings which present a single, unvarying color at a distance. Upon approach, their uniformity dissolves into an amalgam of extremely fine, multi-coloured particles of atomized paint. In this gradient shift from total opacity into pixellated surface, Kassay foregrounds the mechanics of resolution and embodied perception, where an image's coherence is relative to one's position. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Without the boundary of a stretcher or taped edge, the paint diffuses into space, turning the wall into something that is watched rather than seen. Like his earlier silvered canvases, the atomized paintings stage an active encounter with their audience, requiring the viewer to move towards and retreat from their surfaces in order to gauge the perceptual shifts that occur in relation to proximity. Thickening our experience of space, the exhibition becomes an apparatus with which we apprehend the work and plot a point of calibration for our somatic senses.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Jacob Kassay </strong>was born in Lewiston, New York, in 1984. He received his BFA from the State University of New York at Buffalo and lives and works in Los Angeles. Solo exhibitions include<em>&nbsp;Untitled (disambiguation)</em>, The Kitchen, New York (2013); <em>Jacob Kassay</em>, Protocinema, Istanbul, Turkey (2013); <em>No Goal</em>, The Power Station, Dallas (2012) and the ICA, London (2011). The presentation of his work at the Collezione Maramotti in Italy in 2010 received great attention. He first exhibited at Xavier Hufkens in a group show in 2011.</p> Wed, 03 Jun 2015 07:19:36 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/brx/Events/list George Condo - Xavier Hufkens - May 29th - July 11th <p style="text-align: justify;">Xavier Hufkens is pleased to announce an exhibition of works on paper by <a href="http://www.xavierhufkens.com/artists/George-Condo" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">George Condo</a> at 6 rue St-Georges. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The works in this exhibition underscore the fundamental importance of drawing within George Condo&rsquo;s practice. Ranging from bold, large-scale works in oil-stick, through to ink and pencil compositions of varying degrees of complexity, the drawings bear witness to the artist&rsquo;s virtuoso handling of different scales, formats and media. While he rose to prominence as a painter, Condo is a consummate draftsman who does not believe in the traditional art-historical hierarchy that privileges oil painting over works on paper. Says Condo: &lsquo;I want to reverse that, to stand up for drawing.&rsquo; </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">His compositions are imaginary constructs that, on the one hand, open a window onto an inner world. On the other hand, they also reveal an objective, outward-looking dialogue with art history and popular culture. It is a conversation that has provided him with a rich wellspring of inspiration throughout his thirty-year career, not only with regard to subject matter, but also in terms of approach and technique. Condo&rsquo;s interaction with the work of his predecessors is the leitmotiv that runs throughout his highly diverse and idiosyncratic oeuvre, one that has seen him &lsquo;borrow&rsquo; freely from the art-historical canon in order to express complex and conflicting emotional states, or to expose contemporary political, cultural and social mores. While the works in this exhibition share many similarities with his paintings &ndash; figuration, portraiture, fragmentation, caricature &ndash; they nevertheless betray a shift, and mark a resurgence of Condo&rsquo;s engagement with the work of Picasso. At the same time, they are also informed by his abiding interest in popular American culture, including <em>Playboy</em> magazine, comics and cartoons. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The formal correspondences between Condo&rsquo;s drawings and Picasso&rsquo;s cubist period are self-evident, although Condo prefers to define his own art as &lsquo;psychological cubism&rsquo;. He has said: &lsquo;Picasso painted a violin from four different perspectives at one moment. I do the same with psychological states. Four of them can occur simultaneously&hellip; hysteria, joy, sadness, and desperation. If you could see these things at once that would be like what I&rsquo;m trying to make you see in my art.&rsquo; </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Condo&rsquo;s drawings portray a grotesque reality that is characterized by nudity and sex, and which often exudes visceral emotions such as rage, insanity, hysteria, violence, loneliness and alienation. The figures are human, but often distorted and hybrid, depicted with multiple eyes and mouths. Condo aficionados will recognise familiar characters from earlier paintings, such as the butler Jean Louis, while one drawing is executed upon a blank orchestral score, a reminder of Condo&rsquo;s musical abilities. The sense of distress that emanates from a number of works is linked to the artist&rsquo;s profound reflection on the human condition: &lsquo;If you can paint the anguish of everyday life and give some dignity to everyday despair&hellip; or some of the emotions that regular people have, their feelings or thoughts become worthy of an artistic endeavour. There&rsquo;s something beautiful about recognizing those kinds of things in life and saying something about them&hellip; If you think about people&rsquo;s feelings and emotions, or unimportant and insignificant thoughts, and shine a light on them, you get a kind of cinematic moment, like what happens before the first word on a page in a novel.&rsquo; </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>George Condo</strong> (b. 1957) lives and works in New York.
