The influence of an old master on the generations that followed.
Rubens was the Quentin Tarantino of his day, making Flanders one of the world’s foremost regions for painting. The Flemish master-painter developed his own personal style, crafting scenes that exuded lust and were marked by violence, as well as compassion and elegance.

Francisco de Zurbarán ( 1598 – 1664 ) is a painter of the Spanish Golden Age. Contemporary and friend of Velázquez , Zurbarán is well known for his religious paintings – where his art reveals a great visual strength and a deep mysticism . Initially very influenced by Caravaggio , his austere and sombre style evolves to come closer to the mannerism of the Italian masters.

The Sun has a rendezvous with the Moon.
The two artists Peter Keene and Piet.sO in residence in Brussels since 2010, venture between two spells: the sun, the moon, man, woman … in this vast gap where compasses are crazy, meetings ectoplasmic, childhood ubiquitous but worried.

C
razy machines, ghostly appearances, we feel like walking cautiously between two accomplice worlds, robots, giant dresses, projections of light bulbs filaments becoming constellations.
He has this crazy British inventor eccentricity, free and unclassifiable. Born in the vicinity of Birmingham, in the land of the industrial revolution, Peter Keene manipulates techniques as a big box of games and he does what he wants: waves, rays, reinventions of the world.

Her, she wears this playful melancholy which diverted the myths and stories to better capture a story. Granddaughter of Polish immigrants in France in the twenties, having lost touch with her roots, Piet.sO invente for herself weird memory transmission devices.
In chemistry, the association of two elements allows the creation of a new compound which possesses different characteristics. Poetically and simply, one plus one equals more than two. Peter Keene and Piet.sO somehow embody this “miracle” chemical and poetic where plastic dresses dialogues with mechanical Christ all that in a melody electronic and binary.

Constant Permeke – Retrospective – Bruxelles – Belgium

Constant Permeke Leonie 1929-32 Privéverzameling Fotograaf: Hugo Maertens, Brugge © SABAM 2012


From October 11, 2012 to January 20th 2013 – Bozar – Centre for fine Arts

He was a contemporary of Otto Dix and Egon Schiele. But the expressionism Constant Permeke (1886-1969) demonstrated had a very specific personality, reflecting the little people of Flanders – workers, women with many children and peasants – who led a very rugged existence. Dark colors, the power of charcoal often mixed with paint, the monumental approach (the rigidity of his women reminds one of antique goddesses) made Permeke the herald of Flemish expressionism.

Y
et his reputation did not cross the borders easily. By bringing together 130 of his works, the organizers also wish to show his modernity and they chose to confront him to two contemporary artists – Marlene Dumas and her nudes, Thierry de Cordier and his landscapes.
