In our latest Events Belgium article we take a look at what going on around the country.
Jacques Moeschal: Architecture Sculptures
Bozar, together with curator Angelique Campens and Architecture Curating Practice, takes a deep dive into the archives of architect and sculptor Jacques Moeschal (1913-2004). As a student, he quickly became fascinated by the sculptural possibilities of concrete. In the wake of Belgium’s post-war democratisation, he is known for his monumental sculptures, part of the network of motorways. The exhibition zooms in on the relationship between art and architecture, through blueprints, film excerpts, models, and interventions by contemporary artists. 19 September. BOZAR. Tickets: €8
Anne Daems: Tuinkamer (Garden room)
Anne Daems, born in 1966, creates photographs, drawings, videos and installations as a way of navigating through our complex world. She focuses on the everyday details of life and pulls them into the light, where they are meticulously analysed. Daems dissects reality into fragile fragments full of meaning and beauty. There are no grand gestures in her work, there is no spectacle – nothing is important, and yet everything has meaning. In 1999 she won the Prijs Jonge Belgische Schilderkunst, the precursor of the Belgian Art Prize. She lives and works in Brussels. 31 October. BOZAR. Tickets: €4
