D+T Project Gallery, Rue Bosquetstraat 4, 1060 Brussels (BE)
Opening: 2013/12/05 18:00
Following the show Pictorial Field, D+T Project Gallery deepens its investigations related to the subject of painting and its issues in the current times. Thus, painting and its image are the thread within the exhibition conceived by Balleux and Prinz. Yet a paradox is revealed as the images have disappeared – the absence of subject becomes the focus of the artists’ practice. It is, therefore, not the pictorial substance or the underlying image, but rather the lack of it that becomes the subject. The implementation of this abyss appears in a totally nostalgic perspective, which recognises the disappearance of the image. The artists’ personal stories also mingle with the history and genesis of the media.
Stephan Balleux is born in 1974. He works and lives in Brussels.
Hannu Prinz is born in 1978. He works and lives in Berlin.
