La Loge is a Brussels-based space dedicated to contemporary art, architecture and theory that began its activities in 2012. Its aim is to develop a critical program that emerges from the connection to the reality it is embedded in. By inviting multivocal, heterogeneous perspectives, La Loge aims to gain a more nuanced understanding of cultural and societal issues. Architects, artists and cultural agents are invited to develop propositions in which they seek out the characteristic and the peculiar within their practices. La Loge is a space where ideas, discussion and presentation coexist. Its identity stems from the architectural gem that houses it, as well as from the commitment and concerns of its founders. La Loge values engagement of thought and feels particularly interested in exploring questions of space, habitat and use. The intimate sphere of La Loge contributes to a context where conversations with its audience and the diversity of protagonists it invites can be initiated and sustained.
Elsa Brès' films and installations combine research, storytelling and experimentation. Anchored in the long term process and in the territories she inhabits like the Cévennes, in France, her work enables her to sether narratives in the more or less distant time, from which she extracts forgotten stories of resistance and rebellion. Connivéncia is her first solo exhibition in Brussels and presents a body of work around her latest film project Les Sanglières. Taking the wild boar as her starting point, the artist turns the animal into a potential ally in the antipatriarchal and anti-capitalist struggle.
