Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to announce American ar tist Taryn Simon's sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Simon will prese nt for the first time in Belgium her series \;Paperwork \;and t he \;Will of Capital. \;The exhibition \;will be comprised of \;large-scale \;color photographs and sculptures&mdash\;the art ist's first foray into the medium\, \;which were debuted at the 56th&nb sp\;Venice Biennale \;in 2015. \;

\n

In her work\, Simon combines photography\, text\, and graphic design\, in conceptual projects addressing the production and circulation of knowle dge\, and the politics of representation. For this latest project\, Simon e xplores the stagecraft of power\, examining agreements\, contracts\, treati es\, and decrees drafted to influence systems of governance and economics\, from nuclear armement to oil deals and diamond trading.

\n

As the starting points of Paperwork and th e Will of Capital\, Simon drew inspiration from George Sincla ir&rsquo\;s 19th century horticultural study &ndash\; a book containing dri ed grass specimens that inspired Darwin&rsquo\;s theory of evolution &ndash \; and historical photographs of the signings of political accords between leaders of the 44 countries present at the 1944 United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference\, in Bretton Woods\, New Hampshire.

\n

In uncovering these archival photographs\, the artist observed that the attending diplomats \;were consistently flanked by&nb sp\;floral arrangements\, arranged to symbolize the importance of the signa tories and the institutions they represented. Simon subsequently worked wit h a botanist to identify and recreate the flowerpieces from the signings. M ore than 4\,000 specimens were shipped to the artist&rsquo\;s New York stud io\, sourced from the world&rsquo\;s largest flower auction in Aalsmeer\, t he Netherlands\, which receives and distributes approximately 20 million fl owers per day. The recreated centerpieces were photographed and custom fram ed in mahogany to emulate the style of boardroom furniture. The correspondi ng floral specimens were subsequently dried\, pressed\, and sewn into sheet s of archival herbarium paper\, which Simon \;displays alongside the ph otographs. The photographic still lifes stand in contrast to the sculptural natures mortes: as time advances\, so will these artifacts transf orm\, revealing mutable versions of themselves.

\n

Paperwork and the Will of Capital invites the viewer to reflect upon the instability of political decision making and the precario us nature of survival. Like the Dutch 17th century paintings of so-called & lsquo\;impossible bouquets&rsquo\; &ndash\; a bouquet of flowers that could never bloom naturally in the same season and geographic location &ndash\; each photograph is a fantasy made tangible. By focusing on the flower arran gements\, the photographs underscore how the stagecraft of political and ec onomic power is created\, performed\, marketed\, and maintained. \;

\n

Taryn Simon (born in 1975) lives and wor ks in New York City. She graduated from Brown University and was the recipi ent of a Guggenheim Fellowship. \;Recent exhibitions include \;Gara ge Museum of Contemporary Art\, Moscow (2016)\; \;Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume\, Paris (2015)\; \;Louis Vuitton Foundation\, Paris (2014) \; \;Museum Folkwang\, Essen (2013)\; Ullens Center for Contemporary Ar t\, Beijing (2013)\; Museum of Modern Art\, New York (2012)\; Tate Modern\, London (2011)\; Neue Nationalgalerie\, Berlin (2011)\; and Whitney Museum of American Art\, New York (2007). Her work is part of the permanent collec tions of the Metropolitan Museum of Art\, Tate Modern\, the Guggenheim Muse um\, Centre Georges Pompidou\, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

From September 8th to October 8th\, 2016\, Rodolphe Janssen is pleased to present Pierre Alechinsky\, Karel Appel and Fred Bervoets: works on paper from the Sté\;phane Ja nssen collection.

\n

In 1966\, St&e acute\;phane Janssen opens his first gallery in Brussels\, on the avenue Lo uise. For 10 years\, he organizes numerous exhibitions dedicated amongst ot hers\, to the artists Pierre Alechinsky\, Asger Jorn\, Karel Appel\, Bram v an Velde\, Fred Bervoets\, Roger-Edgar Gillet\, Reinhoud\, Cé\;sar an d Oscar Domí\;nguez. In 1976\, Sté\;phane settles in the United States and closes his gallery definitely\, to devote himself to his collec tion.

\n

Sharing his father&rsquo\;s pas sion\, Rodolphe Janssen opens his own gallery\, on rue de Livourne in 1991.

\n

This year\, to celebrate the 25 year s of Rodolphe&rsquo\;s gallery as well as the 50th anniversary of the openi ng of Sté\;phane&rsquo\;s\, father and son wanted to organize an exhi bition side by side\, telling a family story\, a shared passion for contemp orary art\, a tradition of art dealership spanning over half a century and two parallel paths\, even though quite different.

\n

The exhibition will present a selection of works on paper from the 50&rsquo\;s to 70&rsquo\;s\, of artists from Sté\;phane&rsquo\;s former gallery. Following a renewed interest from the contemporary art wor ld for the CoBrA movement\, Rodolphe found it important to highlight the ma jor role played by his father in the 60&rsquo\;s in the promotion of CoBrA and his support to those who have pursued the adventure to this day.

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Indeed\, today\, the CoBrA movement benefit s from a huge surge of interest in the United States and Europe. Major cont emporary artists\, such as Joe Bradley\, Mark Grotjahn\, Chris Martin\, Edd ie Martinez\, Bjarne Melgaard and Julian Schnabel\, do not hide their filia tion with the CoBrA artists over the last decades. Concurrently\, internati onally renowned galleries are now paying attention to the movement\, with t he estates of Karel Appel and Asger Jorn being represented by respectively Blum &\; Poe in Los Angeles and Petzel in New York. Moreover\, instituti ons are dedicating solo shows to CoBrA artists\, such as the Karel Appel re trospective at Centre Pompidou (2015).
