Peintures pour tous @MAC's27.02.2016 - 22.05.2016
MAC's - Musée des Arts Contemporains au Grand-Hornu
Invited by MAC’s for a major exhibition dedicated to him, Jacques Charlier ironically responds with this advertising slogan: paintings for all! "Italian paintings", "fractal paintings" and "indescribable paintings" are the flagship titles of this jukebox-like exhibition. The aim? To show off their colours, and escape into this ‘radical eclecticism’ in the market, which artists who always use the same ‘tubes’ epitomise. A method? Caricature and pastiche which he administers in such a masterly fashion to the art world, like a spanking. His catchphrase? Spare the rod, spoil the child: because paintings enchant Charlier as much as they disillusion him.

46°41'58.365" LAT. -91°59'49.0128" LONG. @ 30M17.02.2016 - 02.04.2016
46°41'58.365" lat. -91°59'49.0128" long. @ 30m by David Bowen refers to the source location where the water surface data was collected for this series. An autonomous aerial vehicle hovering 30 meters above the surface of Lake Superior scanned the water. For this series of five, the vehicle was deployed to the same location on different days and in different weather conditions. The collected data was used to carve a series of cylindrical three-dimensional models in clear acrylic with a CNC router. This process captured the dynamic movements of the waves and ripples from a specific time and location and suspended this ever-changing water pattern into a static transparent form.Read More
Burning Ice #9 - Kaaitheater16.02.2016 - 20.02.2016
During BURNING ICE #9 Lawrence Malstaf presents an adapted version of Tipping Point. A large water-filled disc carefully balances on top of a steel support, tilting up and down. An air bubble slowly travels around, disrupting the disc’s balance.
Malstaf shows how small changes can generate enormous consequences. The findings of the Norwegian Polar Institute were his starting point. They investigated the impact of human activity on the arctic ecosystem. Air and water are the main elements in this vast yet delicate thermodynamic process.
Artefact: Up in the Air09.02.2016 - 21.02.2016
In the installation Event Horizon dust particles are suspended in a beam of light that is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors are invited to wear a protective gas mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro-universe. Conscious of one’s own breath, matter is taking centre stage, dancing in the light and airstreams of the black box with remote sounds of human masses and activity filling the otherwise empty room.
With environmental challenges, population growth and our ever-expanding needs in mind, the brothers Malstaf sought a way to zoom out and contemplate our temporary existence on spaceship Earth. The aim: ‘Making a work with a minimum amount of material and the biggest possible spatial impact.’Read More
