17.03.23 > 13.05.23
BASILE BOON | ANTOINE CARBONNE | ELSA GUILLAUME | JONAS MOËNNE | ELISE PEROI
Curated by : Valérie Bach & Jean-Marc Dimanche
For several years, La Patinoire Royale | Galerie Valérie Bach has been committed to promoting the modern and contemporary Belgian artistic scene, through vast historical group-shows (Sculpting Belgium, Painting Belgium, Belgian Women) as well as solo shows of Belgian artists (Koen Van Mechelen, artistic collective LAb[au], Jan Dries, Antonia Lambelé, Francis Dusépulchre, Marthe Wéry, soon Michel Mouffe).
This new opus brings together five artists “who seize narration to feed their work, whether through the testimony of a reality that is at times barely filtered, or through the escape of a skilfully elaborated fiction*”. This is what connects the five artists selected by the gallery and by Jean-Marc Dimanche to whom we have entrusted the curatorship of this exhibition. They each in their own way tell us a story; make their dreams sing and let us see their enchanted world, in ceramics, glass, woven silk or paint.
