    Dirk Vander Eecken

    At a first viewing of Dirk Vander Eecken's recent work, I was peripherally reminded of the edition "Erster Blick" (2000) of the German artist Gerhard Richter. This simple appropriation of a page from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung shows a photo with a text fragment of the first image of the inside of an atom, made by scientists at the University of Augsburg. It is an edition in which Gerhard Richter expresses his fascination for what underlies the material world, or what it is made up of. Concrete reality is tipped over through a microscopic examination that creates a mysterious image which evades all human control. Gerhard Richter also painted, after an illness, snow landscapes that conjure up a similar fascination with a landscape that exists but is temporarily covered with a layer of white snow. In a similar way, the oeuvre of Dirk Vander Eecken is an attempt at creating a continuum, an attempted contemplation of "realities" that directly opposes the routinous perception of the overpressurised rustling reality that surrounds us.

    Published on the occasion of Frederic Geurts exhibition (un)balanced at Z33, November 2009-February 2010.

    Z33 gives each year one artist the chance to make a first major solo exhibition at the Provincial museum in Hasselt.

    The work of Frederic Geurts consists of monumental, but very fragile structures, where the artist goes to the extreme in exploring the limits of gravity and the materiality of the constructions.

His career, in which craftsmanship and elegance are at the heart of things, spans over 30 years and bears witness to a great personality.

    La robe des choses, Jürgen Partenheimer

    For the the exhibition in the S.M.A.K., Partenheimer's conceptual point of departure has been La Robe des Choses, a text from A la Rêveuse Matière by the French author Francis Ponge. Reality is veiled, elusive. There is only one-way to fathom its depths: through thinking. Reflection results in concepts that enable us to penetrate and reconstruct reality. On the other hand, there will always remain elements from reality that elude pure reason and that can only be made visible by art. Partenheimer's work must consequently be interpreted as resulting from a coherent stream of thoughts, with which the artist does not so much want to reveal or evoke a certain reality, as to show us and discuss the reflections that accompany our 'being in this reality'. Quite often dogmas are undermined by new dogmas. That, precisely, is what Partenheimer seeks to avoid. An image, in Partenheimer's view, is only interesting if it can constantly bring about new streams of ideas. The public is thus invited to create the image himself or herself according the artist's theory: 'All sculpture is essentially conceptual. It does not have a final, definite form or a fixed, spatial dimension. As a model, as a monument of the imagination, a sculpture assumes those dimensions, which it needs for the respective environment in which it is shown. Any work may be altered and its dimensions deliberately adapted to the place chosen for its showing, be it a geometrically architectural room or an open, natural space'.

    In Limbo, Martien Van Beeck

    Looking for a photographic subject, Martien Van Beeck became fascinated by the many ways of preservation in a museum of zoology. Mounted skeletons, stuffed and dried animals and jars of specimens are the manifestations of a disruption of the natural process of living and dying. Van Beeck is interested in the decomposing and concomitant disruption of the symbolic dimensions of grief, mourning and rituals. His photographic work is not an attempt to give an opinion towards the scientific motives to preserve specimens, neither is it an attempt to systematically catalogue all the thousands of jars.  The artist approaches every creature one by one and tries to capture a contorted posture, a dramatic gesture, a grotesque strangeness. Through these photographs van Beek also reflects upon his own death and the meaning of death in our society trough time.

    17 and in AUC – The transcriptions, Hassan Khan

    For 14 nights, 7th 20th of April 2003, the artist sat in a soundproofed one-way mirrored glass room from 7 to 11 pm drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and speaking. His main focus were his undergraduate years (between 1990 and 1995) at the American University in Cairo (AUC), which he entered when he was 15 and graduated from when he was 20. All 56 hours of this performative action were documented on a digital video camera. The book holds a transcription of every legible word uttered during these hours.

    Implants, Els Vander Meersch

    Ajour, Siegfried De Buck



    As a contemporary jewellery designer and silversmith, Siegfried De Buck plays an important role in the development of Belgian goldsmithing. His career, in which craftsmanship and elegance are at the heart of things, spans over 30 years and bears witness to a great personality. Due to his continuous drive for innovation, one discerns various style periods within his design work. Led by his sense of materials, the designer merges precious and non-precious materials to form unique pieces. Ajour shows the jewellery of Siegfried De Buck in several images made by Luc Derycke, who placed the jewellery in a certain, almost nostalgic, context. Bart Janssen wrote several poems that capture the feeling, which the jewellery potentially evokes within the viewer.
