BAD 2018 in ICC Gent

Yves Velter on BAD2018

BAD what? Honestly, I never heard about BAD before last week. BAD is a Belgium Art and Design fair in Gent. And a good one. I went to the preview last night, and came home happy. It was so good to see Yves Velter‘s work once again. I love it so much.

Galerie S&H De Buck op BAD2018Lots of interesting work, like these from Christina Mignolet, and Sven Verhaeghe for example, in the booth of Galerie S&H De Buck.

I also enjoyed the works of Els Vos. Oh well, it’s just to much to mention. You have to go and see for yourself. You can visit BAD2018 untill Sunday 11/02 18.30h. You can find all the info you need on their website.

Beautiful exhibition in Brussels: Chun Kwang Young in Villa Empain

I discovered the art of Chun Kwang Young at Art Brussels this year. I liked it at lot. So when I learned about his solo expo in Villa Empain, a place I also fancied to visit, it was a no brainer: I had to go. Last week, I finally did.

Exposition Chun Kwang Young

Chun Kwang Young

detail artwork by Chun Kwang YoungWhat’s that!? Well, these are tiny triangular packets of hanji. Chun Kwang Young is from South Korea, and hanji is a paper using mulberry bark that has been produced in Korea since the ninth century for packaging, writing, printmaking, insulation, and to hold medicine (thank you exhibition guide ;-).
Damn the man must have a lot of patient, but the result is really beautiful!

Paris: du vin, du pain et … de l’art. Exhibitions Kiefer – Rodin, Shiota, and Baselitz. Impressive!

I had a really nice long weekend in Paris. The weather was fantastic, so were the exhibitions I visited. New paintings from Georg Baselitz in Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac: fabulous! Shiota in Gallerie Templon: magnificent! Kiefer in Musée Rodin: good. Because images say more then words, the summary of a few days Paris in “a few” ;-) pictures. With some explanation.

Kiefer – Rodin in Musée Rodin

Kiefer at Musée RodinThis year, in France, they’re remembering the 100th anniversary of Auguste Rodin’s dead. Therefore there’s a large Rodin exhibition in Le Grand Palais. Musée Rodin themselves, invited Anselm Kiefer to work around “Les cathédrales de France”, a book Rodin has published 100 years ago. Since we’re Kiefer fans, and because Musée Rodin has been on our wish list for a long time, an exhibition not to be missed.

But to be honest, I didn’t like Kiefer’s ‘watercolor books’. Luckily his monumental works were awesome as always.

Art Brussels 2017

I had a blast Friday at Art Brussels! I saw a lot of real good artworks, so it was difficult to make a small selection.
Although: I only had my phone with me to take pictures (stupid, stupid, stupid), so a number of photos just failed.
At the bright side: that made this selection more easy :)
