    CRUX, Koenraad Tinel

    €35.00

    Koenraad Tinel (°1934, Gent) is beeldhouwer en tekenaar. Al heel vroeg begon hij te tekenen en piano te spelen. In 1944 vluchtten zijn ouders met hem en zijn zus naar Duitsland, een odyssee door de puinhopen van Europa die onuitwisbaar in zijn geheugen staat gegrift. Zijn sculpturen, veelal uit metaal en mixed media, vallen op door hun directe zeggingskracht en grote emotionele intensiteit. Doorheen de jaren illustreerde Tinel eveneens tientallen mythen, sproken, oerverhalen van de mensheid en gedichten en verscheen hij meermaals als performer en tekenaar op het podium in projecten van bevriende muzikanten en theatermakers.

    Deze particuliere visuele lezing van zijn oeuvre, gecombineerd met een tekst van Stefan Hertmans, brengt een nieuwe kijk op het werk van Koenraad Tinel.

    From Scene to Scene, Angel Vergara

    €35.00

    The work of Brussels-based artist Angel Vergara (°1958, Spain) is a continued research into the aesthetical and ethical power of the image. Through mediation and transformation of existing images by means of performance, video, installation and painting, Vergara questions the way images shape our reality.

    In his recent painted films, Angel Vergara links audiovisual to painting, putting the act of painting at the heart of his own pictorial production. The exhibition From Scene to Scene in the summer of 2017 at Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels presented five large-format “painted films”, echoing five lectures of poet and art critic Charles Baudelaire in which he defended his views on modernity.

    Alphabet, Michel Mouffe

    €45.00

    The book Alphabet shows Michel Mouffe's early work, assembled in an arbitrary order. Mouffe could be seen as a painter who does not paint. His sculpted paintings are composed of many thin glaze layers, each adding their own meaning and merging into an almost immaterial surface, a barrel full of possibilities. Mouffe creates breathing bodies with subtle bulges emerging from the interior of the cloth. The canvas behaves as skin: at the same time a protective boundary and a vulnerable opening. A skin that contains and protects, but which is also a passage to the outside world.

    The title Alphabet sets out the basics of the work as they would also outline the possibilities to all future works. The book is perceived as a conversation. Sometimes a monologue of Michel Mouffe himself, sometimes a dialogue between him and Joel Benzakin. Alongside this conversation, full of silences and pauses, the work is shown on large scale.

    Hands Of Time (Plein été), Johan De Wilde

    €39.00

    Five years on and the acclaimed Hands of Time has a sequel entitled Hands of Time – Plein été. The second part is an overview of drawings and other works from the period 2012 to 2017 and follows on seamlessly from the first.

    Johan De Wilde’s work seems, if ever that is possible, to have become even more intense and his drawing style to explore new layers.

    The drawings can be seen as the work of a human printer (man created the computer in his own image). They are built up like paintings: a labour-intensive process, layer upon layer of horizontal and vertical lines interwoven with a form, a figure. It is as if he is drawing the canvas on which he paints with his pencils.

    Johan De Wilde draws real time on a scale of 1:1. While his and our time slips by, lines appear, which is another reason why almost every drawing is given the title History + a number. Vita brevis, ars longa.

    From nul to zero, Henk Peeters

    €39.00

    Henk Peeters (°1925, The Hague) was considered one of the most active members of the Dutch NUL movement. Together with other Dutch artists such as Jan Schoonhoven, Armando and Jan Hendrikse, he formed NUL in the 1960’s, which later joined the international movement ZERO. As a result of growing international contacts, Peeters initiated ‘Zero on Sea’, an art manifestation in the summer of 1965 on a pier in Scheveningen, including about 50 likeminded artists from over ten countries.
    Peeters’ work is closely inspired by daily life and natural phenomena. By using mass-produced clinical materials such as nylon and plastic and assimilating them through processes like fire, ice, snow and mist, he aims to reinitiate the viewer’s consciousness towards his environment.
    The artistic practice of Henk Peeters was known for its diversity in material and technique, going from burned canvasses to readymades bought in chainstores. Often these objects show a strong duality between being both tactile and untouchable. As the artist once said: “with my work, I have always wanted it to look just as fresh as if it was in the HEMA (the Dutch chain store). It must not be artified... I had no need for artistic cotton wool.”
