The exhibition elaborates the themes, ideas, beliefs, and passions that have stimulated artists in their struggle to work within and against established conventions, often directly engaging their political and social contexts.

Participating artists: Richard Aldrich, Thomas Bayrle, Merlin Carpenter, Thilo Heinzmann, Karl Holmqvist, Simon Thompson, Oscar Tuazon

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.

altblog – Kasimir Malevitch
« Voici une dizaine d’années que j’ai entrepris un travail, principalement de peinture, qui s’attache
à démontrer qu’il demeure un usage contemporain possible et valide des formes issues du modernisme historique. Au moyen de figures simples, de procédés élémentaires empruntés tant au vocabulaire abstrait qu’à une réflexion sur le langage héritée de l‘art conceptuel, je m’intéresse à montrer ce qui subsiste au-delà de l’image, ou malgré elle : la pratique et l’énonciation. Autrement dit, littéralement, ce que l’on fait, et ce que l’on dit. »
Nicolas Chardon, 2011

Réplique instinct
inserts an often neglected dimension, that of improvisation and intuition, the instinct for life where gains are inseparable from losses, progress from disappearance.
