For the inaugural Roundabout exhibition at the Aubette Pavilion at The Middelheim Museum, artist Paul Hendrikse revisits his project The Ideal Form (2007/2013). This newly restored century-old pavilion near the main entrance of the Museum will become the site of exhibitions developed by artists put forward by Objectif Exhibition.In The Ideal Form, Hendrikse investigated the legacy of Lode Craeybeckx, who, as the mayor of Antwerp from 1947 until his death in 1976, oversaw the city’s rapid expansion in the post-war years. One of Craeybeckx’s signal accomplishments was the transformation of the Middelheim Park, destroyed during World War Two, into an open-air sculpture museum.

RIVAGES

altblog — Lara Gasparotto — Rivages

I basically do what I’ve always done: I photograph what’s around me, my surroundings, my life, my travels. It’s a celebration of life, freedom, and liberty, in a way. But in a little while I’ll start something totally new because I want to take my photography a step further. I’m flying to New Orleans, L.A., Panama and wherever my travels will take me. I’ve mostly been photographing in Europe and I need some new inspirations and want to create some new structures in my images. It will be good to see something new for four months. Lara Gasparotto, 24.08.2012, interview by Sarah Schug in The Word Magazine.  During the exhibition her new book will be introduced, that holds the same title Rivages.

ALBARELLI FOR ALL SORES

Filed under: Art contemporain, Design | Tags: , |

altblog – Johan TahonIn his early twenties Johan Tahon dug up in the center of Ghent a majolica milk jug. It proved to be an important discovery: it was made by the Antwerp ceramist of Italian descent Guido Andries. Andries introduced majolica in the Netherlands and in 1520 put up a kiln in the Kammenstraat, not far from where gallery Valerie Traan is now located. Johan Tahon shows for the first time his versions of the albarello, or pharmacist’s pot, capriciously covered with white enamel.

LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE GOT HERE FIRST

altblog – Dominique Somers and Egon Van Herreweghe - 01altblog – Dominique Somers and Egon Van Herreweghe -02New duo-exhibition with collaborative and individual work by the artists Dominique Somers and Egon Van Herreweghe in Stilll. The content consists of images reproduced from other books, all belonging to the library of the Antwerp FotoMuseum. By using different modes to reproduce these finds – scanning, photocopying, photographing – the original visual material is manipulated once more. Imperfections of image surface and duplicating techniques are marked. Point of departure was the creation of a book, a jury price given to the artist during Art Brussels at the POPPOSITIONS off fair.

Stilll is a gallery working with artist who use photography as a medium. Expect sculpture, painting, drawing, performance, video… from a photographical point of view.

ONCE, STILL AND FOREVER

Filed under: Photographie | Tags: , , |

altblog – Jessica BackhausOnce Still and Forever takes us on time travels through the works of Jessica Backhaus. The title of her latest series veritably demands that we think about what has been, what is and what will remain in the future. Taking this title as a guiding principle when viewing the succession of Backhaus’s work series, the direction her oeuvre has taken since 2005 becomes clear.

SIMPLE PRESENT

Filed under: Art contemporain, Photographie | Tags: , , |

“The bizarre cityscapes of Bert Danckaert deal with the same paradox of abstractive simplicity and a complexity of meaning and metaphor. Danckaerts still lives breathe a superficial flavour, a strangeness that is found in the familiar.” Inge Henneman
