The new cultural season for the visual arts in The Hague was opened last Friday with the exhibition Brique in Quartair.
I went there the next day to write an article for Villa la Repubblica as it is a very fine exhibition.
The artists are all from Belgium.
The works are very diverse, with prints, drawings, installations and sculptures. Untill here you’ve seen works by Hedwig Brouckaert (drawings on print), Hans Demeulenaere (installation Spheres) and Stéphanie Leblon (painting).
View of the gallery.
Detail of a sculpture by Anton Cotteleer who invented an alternative way to keep a squirrel.
Details of a gigantic woodcut by Caroline Coolen, who also made
these ceramic dogs, cooperating with
Demeulenaere who arranged the bricks.
Cotteleer’s three graces clearly lost their heads in the process, while
Stefan Serneels’ ink drawings, of which you see details here, add to the dreamlike ideas in this exhibition.
Demeulenaere shows some installations, but is
bind together the different works of the other artists. Demeulenaere calls it
Preparation for a Winter Garden. A good preparation for the coming season and its introvert nature.
