altblog – Evan Robarts

Balayer, éponger, gommer, frotter, laver, brosser constituent la base fonctionnaliste à partir de laquelle Evan Robarts définit son travail de sculpture, d’installation et de peinture. Empruntés au monde ouvrier et à la vie quotidienne, les matériaux et les objets de l’artiste rejouent par certains aspects le contexte physique et visuel des cols bleus au travail.

altblog – Carl PalmSplash, Can And Cock is an art exhibition display behind the window, during winter 2013-14. It plays with the light and the interior/exterior relations. Pieces seem to lay behind the glass to be enjoyed by the passer-bys. Illuminated from the inside, the piece creates warmth and also questions the setting of any shop window or private space open to the outside. Jakup Auce’s new work (Kimberly Clark, 2013) was created for the occasion, while Carl Palm’s piece (Plage de Bureau, 2013) has been travelling for the last months. Curated by Sonia Dermience and Alberto García del Castillo.

Komplot, Bruxelles.  30.10.2013 > 15.03.2014.

altblog – Nicolas Lamas - Partial ViewThe work of Nicolas Lamas is based on a process reflection about space, time, culture and science. Exploring different scientific fields such as astronomy or physics, Lamas formalizes his questioning using various media, playing on codes of monstration, comparing objects which seem a priori to be opposites, to elicit meaning and drama. The young Peruvian artist based in Belgium creates a world crammed with possibilities, creating permanent interactions, ellipses, attractions and repulsions, inversions between horizontality and verticality, incompatibilities between vacuum and matter, distortions of logic.
