EXPO // TEKEN AAN DE WAND // Gavin Vanaelst X Laura Geurten (07.02 – 09.02)

February 7th - February 9th 2020
KOP Artspace // Amerikalei 128 // 2000 Antwerpen

There are a whole lot of artistic and entrepreneurial things happening behind the doors of our creative shelter on Amerikalei. For instance, there is this artist called Gavin Vanaelst, who is hiding high up in our attic. However, from February 7th till February 9th, he descends to the ground floor for a duo exhibition with artist Laura Geurten. For three days, you can admire their exposition ‘TEKEN AAN DE WAND’ in our KOP Artspace.

Like many artistic people who are hiding high up in attics, Gavin Vanaelst is a very versatile artist. Both as a musician and visual artist, he uses different kinds of methods to give his work an emotional perception.

The work of Laura Geurten is, on the other hand, more inspired by patterns and structures that are shaped by nature or mankind. From a mostly graphic perspective, she investigates and translates these patterns into a new context.

 

The exhibition ‘TEKEN AAN DE WAND’ will show no such thing as a direct image of reality. Laura produces a bas-relief that is inspired by the sculptures that are often incorporated into facades of mid-twentieth-century buildings. Gavin will provide three-dimensional work in the same atmosphere. The exhibition is supplemented by paintings and graphic work of both artists.
