'EN FLAMME' is an exhibition on the theme of decay / destruction / construction / passion. "And flamme 'means literally catch fire. Fire is both a destruction as an energy and possibility to build something new. The selected artists are all working around construction / destruction. Impermanence is a central theme in their work. Standing in fire means passion The concerned artists and all partners share a very great passion and involvement in the arts. Creating opportunities and platform for others, all have a great passion for Art and share this with the public in other collaborations and crossover thinking. It is a new generation of artists. Individualism and narcissism are out, sharing is the new big thing through cooperation’s and projects. Construction, Decline, reconstruction, energy and passion is ignited, the common thread throughout the exhibition. Passion Makes art. Passion brings us together, changes and unites.
EN FLAMME is a group exhibition in the new artspace FIRMA in Vilvoorde whereby artists are invited from Paris, Berlin, Antwerp, Ghent and Kortrijk to work in the theme of construction, deconstruction, energy and passion. Definitions are redefined In a pinnacle of a capitalistic and individualistic society. We are looking for harmony and community spirit, to light up.
