Dear art lovers,
The long-awaited spring has pushed the doors open and intoxicated with a reawakening of nature. Following this example, we are opening the doors to our first exhibition this year on April 29th. We are very proud that the renowned Belgian artist Jacques Charlier has accepted our invitation.
And we hope to be able to compete with the spring and to arouse Your interest in a highly idiosyncratic as always fresh artistic position.
Jacques Charlier is a conceptual artist who has been asking questions about art for more than fifty years and casting an ironic eye on it’s relationship to reality – how reality works in art or as art.
Often irritating to the viewer is his play with the borders between art-object and everyday object.
What happens, what does it mean, for example, when house painters paint over the green foliage of a tree in autumn colors?
As an artist, Jacques Charlier works in all fields, from comics to photography, film, music, painting, installation and performance. Thus bares the catalog contributed to his retrospective in La Panacée Montpellier 2017, curated by Nicolas Bourriaud, the self-deprecating title « UN ART SANS IDENTITÉ JACQUES CHARLIER ». « An art without Identity » humorously provokes the demand of the art market for a style as a trademark from the artist.
Also Marcel Broodthaers ironized himself as an artist when he wrote, « I came up with the idea to invent something insincere, and I immediately got to work. » In the 1960s and 1970s, the two free spirits were « Compagnons de Route ».
We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition Jacques Charlier – Paysage Artistique and other works – in the De Henehoeve Gallery in 3870 Heks (Be), Henestraat 12. The artist will be present.
Save the date: Sunday, 29th of April, 2018 from 15.00-18.00 hours.
Duration of the exhibition: until Sunday, 18th of June 2018.
From this weekend, the exhibition and the café will be open from 12.00-18.00 hours on Sat/Sun, or by appointment.
