Gauthier Hubert
In this second part, Gauthier Hubert breaks down the bonds of his “ réunion de famille” (un goût de liberté) exhibition and completely changes its meaning by removing from it everything which does not relate to people.

yoel pytowski
Winner of the ART CONTEST 2019, Yoel Pytowski has been given the opportunity to expose his work in the Botanique Gallery in the context of ART CONTEST 2020.

In his in-situ installations, space and questions around space form the central narrative for Yoel Pytowski, as he invites in construction, destruction or past or future reconstructions.

For the last 5 years, his practice has mainly focussed on large-scale architectural installations. He introduces new physical elements or creates voids in a given place, thus upsetting the understanding of the pre-existing space in which various elements – mostly made of concrete - then seem to buried in the ground or emerging from it. This creates an ambiguity in which it is often hard to identify the artist’s work. Where do we look, where are we, what was there here before and for how long? …

Cécile Massart
Cécile Massart is a Belgian artist who uses different mediums: drawing, engraving, installations, photography, video, artist’s book. In 1994, the matter of locating sites used for the storage of radioactive waste becomes the primary subject of her work. She seeks to raise awareness about the visibility of these sites among the agencies managing them. Her goal is to incorporate this uniquely 21st century archaeological stratus into the landscape, thus calling on every individuals’ own sense of responsibility. What type of energy policy do we want for the future? What do we want to pass down to future generations?

This exhibition is put together as an attempt at a conversation about the reasons for human travel and the developmental mechanisms behind our fantasies of Elsewhere. It invites us to reflect on a series of images connected to these journeys, ranging from mass tourism to contemporary migration; some of which inspire to travel and some which show the consequences.

Benjamin Installé
In this new exhibition, Benjamin Installé displays ambitious painting, which occupies the entirety of the Botanique Gallery. Somewhere between a large-scale historical scene, the backdrop of a play and cymatium mouldings, the focal piece of the exhibition represents a deserted space, littered with objects that have clearly been left behind by their owners and await their hypothetical return. The occupants of the painting - artists, construction workers, delivery workers or homeless people - have gone. They might have simply left their place of work at the end of the day, or perhaps we arrive just after the party has ended and everyone has already gone home to nurse a hangover.

elise peroi
The relationship to space and habitat is central to the work of Élise Peroi, which is permeated by Michel Foucault's reflections on "heterotopias". He writes that "The garden is a carpet where the whole world comes to accomplish its symbolic perfection and the carpet is a mobile garden through space".

THIS EXHIBITION IS SUSPENDED


"A review already at Rif-Raf!"

He brought out his first EP in 2016 with the label I-SEL/P based in Saint-Gilles, after creating several self-produced CDs (which stood out thanks to the attention given to the artwork). He has also participated in compilations made by foreign labels, but now this Etterbeek native is back with his first LP out at the end of the winter of 2020. It almost seems like a rite of passage, an act of maturity as our Swiss friends might say when someone passes an educational milestone – there is even a Swiss Maturity Committee! Imagine how we would quiver if we had to face such a Committee, given how we already shudder in Wallonia when we have to submit a subsidy request for so-called non-classical music. But let’s get back to the artist.

Gauthier Hubert
This exhibition is not retrospective, but rather “introspective”, according to the artist himself.

In this journey through time, which brings together a selection of recent paintings, as well as paintings going back some 15 years, Gauthier Hubert presents the relationships that exist between some of these paintings. As in a family tree, as part of his process, he brings together certain works which, on the face of it, seem to have nothing in common, but which would in reality not even exist without the connection between them.

yves lecomte
The work of Yves Lecomte (Binche 1974, lives and works in Brussels) is primarily structured around enjoyment, effacement, duplication, the past and happenstance. He brings to life the possibilities and aporia of duplication, reflection, logical and visual paradoxes, linguistical turnarounds and mises en abyme.

memymom
Memymom is the collaboration between mother-daughter artist duo Marilène Coolens & Lisa De Boeck. Two self-taught photographers who work and live in Brussels, Belgium. The cross-generational project began with what the artist duo describes as The Umbilical Vein, a reference to the analogue image made between 1990 and 2003. An intimate archive of family photos in which Marilène encouraged Lisa to express herself and to invent her own improvised theatre sketches.

Over the years, these semi-staged dreamscape portraits developed into a mature conversation that deals not only with metamorphosis, personal identity, potential, and the mother-daughter relationship, but has evolved into a plea for sensual analysis and tragic romanticism. It reveals both the foundations of the close bond and the professional career of this artistic duo, who have worked together under the moniker memymom since 2004.
