Text by Sonia Dermience : She must be around 18. Her name is Casha. The baby, not yet walking, is eating crisps. In front of me in the train Warsaw-Vienne. The guy in front of me, Polish as well, started to speak right away as well about clubs next to Gare du nord in Brussels, where he works on construction sites… Sunny frisk November day, 7 hours train as a romantic old fashioned way of traveling. They left the cabin and came back. He is divorced with two kids, he showed me photos with his ex wife. He is going back to the village. His car is in Belgium, a black Audi i saw in photos with his tattoos on his breast, symbols of success and sexyness. He is cute. Young. You can feel cosyness in this cabin with them and one other girl who does not speak as she must feel ashamed of a possible closeness with unexpected encounters, random people. She speaks to give me wifi and i realize she just doesn’t want any contact with the others, who she must see as lower class. The young mother has a beautiful voice, elegant, dressed in black. The baby just made a mess with another pack of crisps that was next to my seat. He is sitting on the floor trying to eat them. Now strolling around with the mother who seems happy as much as the baby, both warm people. Looking through the window i think about contraception and abortion. The land is flat. Small trees. I type with one finger on my phone. Thinking about that photo i want to make of Jean-Pierre pissing on a car at night with the flash. A naked woman riding the bronze crocodile in Botanical garden would be too political maybe? Emeline could also just sit inside the car at night. A kind of Vogue magazine reportage flash night, colors, characters questioning belonging and possession of private spaces and people. This guy in front of me should be part of the shoot. He wears a green Adidas jacket with jeans perfect short hair shaped in the back. He just asked the name to the other girl i understood replied Sandra. She doesn’t want anything to do with a too young mother and a construction worker. The Guy just made a sign to Casha to go back to toilet but i don’t know if he mimicked blow job or cigarette. She puts lipstick on. He tries to sleep. The baby is learning English with the phone repeating ‘Hello, how are you?’ Then record her own voice repeat and laugh to finally switch to heavy techno. This pink pullover makes me look fat in association with that wool leather brown skirt. The grey leggings are ok with the boots and skirt, still the top ruins the ensemble. If i put lipstick they will think i want to have sex. Or that i am an old wicked lady. The baby is dressed in pink like my lipstick, that is very comforting, soft pink named rouge pure couture. I put it on and feel already so full of reassuring intimacy in this cosy warm cabin full of sun and beautiful people. I have to pee. I realize i am with the sexiest people of the train… Even if i ate lots of cakes in Warsaw and have my menstruation, i think about sex when i close my eyes. The guy is asleep. The baby as well. Sandra as well; can’t see Casha making photos of her pack of crisps. First stop: a city of houses and blocs, no one would choose to live here if you are not from here and still half of Polish population believe they have a problem with foreigners. Police in the train. Police is back. Two young guys.

XEROX

Capture d’écran 2016-08-30 à 16.28.12
For its next exhibition ‘xerox’, Société returns to the analogue world of copy art, to confront the two dimensional exhibition space of printed matter with the three dimensional one of the exhibition space. From LAb[au]’s entropic machine, Carsten Nicolai’s sounds of transcoded information flows to Tiago Duarte’s residu roll, Hanne Darboven’s columns and rows, to Dieudonné Cartier’s sculptural interpretation of station for art by fax, … all projects interpret the realm of paper and ink.

NÉ UN 2 JUILLET

Filed under: Art contemporain, Peinture - Illustration | Tags: , , |

Pierre Clément
« Né un 2 juillet fait dialoguer deux générations, celle d’un groupe qui a évolué à travers l’explosion du cinéma hollywoodien et une plus jeune bande de plasticiens qui a connu la bombe internet. Malgré des différences générationnelles, entre 1972 et 1992, l’exposition met en exergue la déambulation. Un espace temps se crée à travers les œuvres, un retour en arrière ainsi qu’une projection dans un avenir chaotique et non certain. Tel un parcours du combattant, le visiteur dérive, se laisse porter et fait face au boom générationnel. » (Paumine Pavec).

ULAY: COME ON

Ulay_MOT 2
MOT International presents Ulay’s first solo exhibition in Brussels. Referencing his 1970s series Anagramatic Bodies, new photo collages feature German actresses Nina Hoss and Iris Berben, together with models Lily McMenamy and Stella Lucia, while works from the artist’s photographic archive cumulatively recount his nomadic, itinerant life over the past forty years. The exhibition includes rarely-presented projects produced during his career defining collaboration with Marina Abramović, such as the artist’s extensive personal documentation of 1988’s The Great Wall Walk in diaries, drawings and a pair of seven metre scrolls, in addition to photographs recording the artist’s time in the Central Australian Desert (1979) with members of the aboriginal Pintubi community.

altblog – Benoît Maire – 2016
La première exposition personnelle en Belgique de Benoît Maire donne d’emblée une impression aiguë de classicisme et de réflexion contemporaine. D’une part, des peintures sur toile sont accrochées au mur, d’autre part quelques sculptures sur des socles viennent interroger le dispositif général d’une exposition.

SEQUOIA DREAM

altblog – Adrien Vescovi – 2016

Si les rêves avaient des titres, celui que Jagna Ciuchta a fait au début de sa résidence serait “Sequoia Dream”, “Le rêve du séquoia” en français. Cet arbre géant qu’elle a associé à son travail ici donne à ce rêve une dimension optimiste. Sans en pousser plus loin l’interprétation, le titre du rêve de l’artiste est aussi celui de cette exposition dans son atelier, faisant de celle-ci un espace à part… Avec: Pascal Butto, Nina Childress, Jagna Ciuchta, Suzanne Husky, Bernard Jeufroy, Miika, Nathanaëlle Puaud, Adrien Vescovi et des artistes anonymes.

altblog-EtienneCourtois
Following visits of fifty-some artists studios in Belgium, the gallery will present works by nine very diverse and emerging artists. The title of the exhibition not only refers to the eponymous restaurant in Ghent where the idea was born during a lunch meeting in between studio visits. It also underlines the ambition of these nine artists as well as the purpose of the show, to put a spotlight on talented artists who haven’t yet had many opportunities to showcase their works: Sarah Caillard, Étienne Courtois, Kasper De Vos, Douglas Eynon, Julien Goniche, Liesbeth Henderickx, Alejandra Hernández, Sanam Khatibi and Klaas Vanhee.
