"Déjeuner sur l'herbe" @ Musée et Jardins Van Buuren

« Déjeuner sur l’herbe » Vernissage Sunday Sept 11th from 2pm – 6pm

« Comme si de rien n’était »
Un projet de Michel Van Dyck en collaboration avec Joel Benzakin
et le soutien d’Isabelle Anspach conservatrice du Musée Van Buuren
Sept 8th – Oct 17th 2016

'Plus qu’une expression servant à décrire une situation originale, cette formule a le mérite de ne rien mettre en avant, de ne pas se prévaloir d’un quelconque besoin d’explication ou de justification, elle est toute entière l’affirmation de présences et de modes opératoires s’infiltrant librement et en toute discrétion dans le contexte d’un lieu particulier. Sans rien bousculer ni transformer, les artistes choisis sont ici invités à inscrire leurs travaux dans le cadre d’une célèbre maison bruxelloise, le Musée Van Buuren, devenue aujourd’hui, avec ses jardins, une fondation ouverte au public.
Cette situation ne peut que s’inspirer de ce que l’on a l’habitude d’appeler le Genius Loci, (le génie du lieu), et cette notion prend ici toute sa signification à la fois plurielle et polyvalente, toute sa capacité à réunir différentes temporalités, passé et présent, à rassembler toute l’énergie d’un partage soucieux de maintenir une mémoire et d’y ajouter, l’air de rien, de nouvelles expériences, afin d’en augmenter les ressources. Il ne s’agit pas de faire comme si rien n’y était déjà établi mais bien au contraire de s’y faufiler et s’y risquer, le temps d’une exposition, en toute convivialité.'

Artists : Valerie Mannaerts, Sophie Whettnall, Lucia Bru, Ann Veronica Janssens, Anne-Catherine Kenis, Marie Goyette, Lionel Esteve, Michel Francois, Stefan Rinck, Eric Croes, Angel Vergara, Christophe Terlinden, Michel Mouffe, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Thierry Struvay, David de Tscharner, Richard Venlet, Kendel Geers, Tony Matelli, Vincent Chenut, Walter Swennen, Gaillard&Claude, Alec De Busschère

Pour des raisons indépendantes de notre volonté, nous avons été contraints d’annuler l’exposition de Ron Gorchov, prévue pour la rentrée à l’occasion des Brussels Gallery Weekend.
Néanmoins, nous avons l’honneur de vous présenter une sélection d’œuvres de Marcel Broodthaers : plaques, de dessins, d’objets, d’éditions, ...

Collaboration between Maniera and Jan Mot

@ Maniera
JONATHAN MUECKE, JULIAAN LAMPENS
Jonathan Muecke’s particular interest in scale and typology translates into ‘open objects’. Their apparent simplicity conceals a complex theoretical and experimental process informed by architectural and artistic references. Blurring the boundary between art and design, Muecke critically explores the very definitions of functional archetypes, like a chair, a table or a lamp. Each object is meticulously reduced to its most minimal appearance, leaving aside all unessential details in favour of lightness and continuous surfaces.

The work of Jonathan Muecke and Juliaan Lampens will also be on show at Jan Mot, as part of the scenography of the exhibition ‘Joachim Koester. Sometimes when you blink you may see trees.’ (from 8 Sep to 8 Oct).

Coming September 8th, Feizi Gallery will be renamed Irène Laub Gallery.
The change of name reflects the Gallery’s reorientation decided by its initiator Irène Laub. Dropping its specific Chinese contemporary art profile, it seeks artists with strong messages the world over and with a propensity for cross fertilization.

"Archives" @ Bureau des Réalités

Bureau des Réalités is pleased to present Archives, a project dedicated to Guy Mees (1935-2003) featuring works, documents, photographs and videos dating back to the early 60’s.
The exhibition constitutes an attempt to trace the path and follow the gaze of an artist who gave the name Lost Space (Verloren Ruimte) to his two largest ensembles; the lace works realized between 1960 and 1966 and the reliefs cut out of colored paper and pinned to the wall, which he began in 1983.
Archives was conceived in conjunction with the solo exhibition Guy Mees at Galerie Micheline Szwajcer in Brussels, curated by Bureau des Réalités.
OPENING 10 SEPTEMBER 2-8pm
