Can’t Do Nothing and Prosper Desmet, Billytown, The Hague

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The exhibition Can’t Do Nothing at Billytown, curated by Bernice Nauta is a great success as far as i am concerned.

The works are close enough to the viewer to speak to him/her.

It works like that because of the positioning of the works, which is inviting, maybe even confronting, and intimate at some points.

There are works on show by Nauta herself and by Victor Yudaev (i’m eagerly awaiting a solo show in The Hague of that guy), Kim David Bots, André Sousa, Tessel Vooijs and Anna Sophie de Vries (sorry, couldn’t make any proper pictures of her work for this blog).

This is surely one of the best shows at Billytown since its opening at this location, varied, serious, humorous, inventive and both exuberant and basic and intimate.

Of course you can enjoy the pictures here, but you’d better go to Billytown and take a look there.

In the kitchen/project space Nauta invited Prosper Desmet to show some work.

It is more or less an addition to the main show and quasi-Belgian-absurdist.

As such it is not as convincing as Can’t Do Nothing.
