Henri Jacobs (1957) shows drawings.
Pacquée’s work with coins Complete collapse – referring to the fall of Lehmann Brothers in 2008 – is the basis of the show.
She also shows circles in daily life in different places in the world and
you can see circles in her videos.
In one of them she is running in circles around street rubbish in Antwerp.
Jacobs shows some of his so-called Journal Drawings, works based on subjects that keep him busy in his mind the moment he starts a drawing, usually subjects with a strong geometrical input.
Circles, the most perfect shapes in daily life, often occur in his works.
During the exhibition Jacobs is working on a monumental drawing, so there is a good opportunity to meet the artist.
Works of both artists are mixed, such that a wonderful combination of the outer and inner worlds make a complete world.
