Two beers and no puppy is an exhibition by Charlotte Lybeer and Liesbeth Marit.
In this exhibition, the photographers show work made during the corona years. A visible urge to escape, an attempt to evoke a dream world. With Marit in her creations of cinematic fantasies, with Lybeer by finding fiction in everyday reality. Despite the different starting point, the theme of the 'female figure' is central to both works.
The exhibition reflects how people respond to a changing world. In the wake of Covid-19, a shrinking world that limits our freedom but at the same time encourages us to push our limits of imagination.
This exhibition is part of a participatory project in which the artists engage in dialogue with local residents and visitors to De Markten.
Anyone who identifies as a woman and lives in Brussels can register to have a portrait taken by one of the photographers. When the portrait is taken, there will be listening and collaboration. The woman's story is central.
