“Le Pas Suspendu” - Younes Baba-Ali, Lucile Bertrand, Rui Calçada Bastos, Eirene Efstathiou, Michèle Magema et Pedro A.H. Paixão (group expo)
The Irène Laub gallery presents a multidisciplinary group show on the theme of borders.
If natural borders defy the horizon, other borders whose lines have been drawn by human hands, however, only separate fellow people. And when one crosses those boundaries, when one merely steps on the other side, do people and landscapes really seem different?Poetry also nestles in the smallest gaps and crevices, lines and borders. This is what the six artists brought together by Irène Laub gallery are trying to show through this group exhibition. They question the border as a horizon line and a suspended moment in time. For some of them, this work evokes space, for others, cultures and time.
The title of the exhibition is a tribute to the suspended step of the stork, a beautiful1991 film by Theo d’Angelopoulos (and to the suspended step of Alexandre, a young reporter on a mission to a border refugees are waiting to cross).

About Irène Laub Gallery
Since 2016, Irène Laub Gallery exhibits established and emerging artists in Brussels and in a selection of international art fairs. Our represented artists are actively committed to questioning social, political and architectural spaces. They present a very diverse body of work – including installation, video, sculpture, painting and drawing – and display pure and powerful aesthetics. The gallery is intended as an adaptable experimentation space, allowing the artists to stretch the boundaries of their chosen discipline, either by testing and distorting the physical frame of the work itself, or by exploring its significance in the social sphere.
