CURENT EXHIBITION

MARC DE BLIECK
TRACES

Opening Sunday February 14, 2021 at 3 pm

Until Sunday April 25 -2021

Monuments that look like images (of monuments). Photographs depicting monuments. Photographs of monuments that look like photographs of monuments. Photographs that look like photographs. Images in which all dimensions have been reduced to a flat surface. What could be the meaning of that reduction? Can it add anything? These are questions that can be asked about the oeuvre of Marc De Blieck - and that he also asks himself.

Contrary to what this questioning might evoke, the oeuvre of Marc De Blieck(° 1958 BE) is unusually rich in meticulously worked-out images that result in works that provide the spectator with an aesthetic experience beyond measure when getting to the bottom of them.

Moreover, Marc De Blieck returns to his first practice as a painter. This summer, in the group exhibition "The beginning of The 21st century" in our gallery, he already showed some new works painted with photo ink on Japanese paper. He says: "They are not compositions, they are the result of procedures. They are traces, not writings, they cannot be read as a scripture. It has a lot to do with the black box of photography, with a magical game that one can never control. It only has meaning when you play it together.".

35 SYNONYMS FOR 'HAMMERED INTO', A FAMILY PACK OF YOKES, ONE PUDDLE, ONE DRINK, AND A FIRM PROMISE OF FUTURE SCHEMES

Opening Thursday May 14, 2021

The upcoming show is the conclusion and relocation of a previous show that was loaned out to its visitors for a year.

 

The previous show in Yuri G. Gallery in Antwerp displayed a total of 29 hammers in varying combinations of lengths, weights, heads and handles, and arranged in 9 wooden frames. Additionally, a total of 9 yokes in three variations, were displayed together on a stand.

 

The hammers and the yokes were loaned out to those who visited the show, resulting in an exhibition of empty frames and gaps. They served as a promise to meet at a future date, when the hammers would be returned.

 

During the opening weekend of this new show, the loan will end and each hammer or yoke will be returned to its original frame or stand.

 

The current show will include additional hammers, one puddle, one drink and a firm promise of future schemes.
