SCULPTURE?/SCULPTURE
DECLARING SPACE

April 25 - June 21 2019 - Opening April 24, 5-9 pm

Ars Belga is delighted to present a new exhibition on the occasion of Art Brussels 2019. This exhibition will be held simultaneously to another show presented at the fair by Counter Space (Zurich) Sculpture?/Sculpture.

In a parallel initiative, our present exhibition will focus on one of the primary interrogations of this theme. Inspired by the groundbreaking exhibition Declaring Space: Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, at Fort Worth museum in 2007, the exhibition focuses on how sculptures can define and appropriate space. Conceived as an homage to a very intense moment in the metaphysics of abstraction, the show conceptualised spatial themes in postwar abstract art, in which “the boundaries of traditional pictorial space were crossed and a new realm of abstract theater was engaged.”

That is why, Ars Belga will present from 24th April to 21st June 2019 a bold exploration of this theme. Farther than the obvious tangible aspect of sculptures, the artists on view explored different perspectives in order to appropriate the sculptural space further than the three-dimensional traditional aspect of their artworks.

Each artwork will question their environment through a different approach to the intangibility of space. The visitor will be led to a confrontation with the invisible, through sound to weight, with the contrast of material used by artists and light, whether it is absorbed or reflected. Bringing together historical and contemporary artists from different generations and horizons, the show confronts the different perspectives to highlight.

Carl Andre, Ivan Argote, Antoinette d’Asembourg, Stephan Balleux, Robert Barry, Georg Baselitz, Otto Boll, Jacques Charlier, Michel François, Nadia Guerroui, Richard Nonas, Will Kerr, Germaine Kruip, Gabriel Rico, Vittorio Santoro, De Wain Valentine, Rémy Zaugg.
