(Inter)national Affairs – 3
‘The Alphabet of what lies Ahead’
Brazil meets Belgium for this third edition of (Inter)national Affairs.
This merge of minds isn’t a new one: the book “The Alphabet of what lies Ahead”, which was created for the exhibition, comprises a collection of collages and drawings by longtime friends Cinelli and Vyncke. Inspired by the transformational and turbulent times of these past two years on the one hand, and by the uncertainty of human evolution in the times to come on the other, the book offers us a snapshot of future history. How will we look back at this era in twenty years?
The exhibition in KOP is a continuation of this thought process, with Rein Vyncke exhibiting a series of paintings based upon the drawings in the book, exploring a more elemental approach to creating, stripping it from unnecessary layers and expectations to stand out against our highly result driven society. An act of rebellion, if you will.
In contrast, “Onio”’s collages leave no room for blank spaces, but rather explore an almost explosive variety of colours, abstract shapes and textures, blending artificial and spontaneous aesthetics in the pursuit of triggering different areas of the mind.
Exhibition runs till 19/12/21.
Open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 14h till 20h.
Bar open during the entire exhibition.
