O C T O B E R – Studio visit Yves Zurstrassen

Yves Zurstrassen’s paintings are a work always in motion, navigating between lyrical abstraction and abstract expressionism. His approach plays with the general principle of collage and “décollage” of various types of thin paper on successive layers of colour.

After having visited Yves Zurstrassen’s beautiful exhibition “Free” at Bozar last year, we were super curious to meet the artist behind the works and to discover his large light flooded studio!

When?  Tuesday 13 October at 7 PM
Where? Brussels (exact address upon registration)

Open to all Spark members; non-members will be admitted on a first come, first served basis and pay 40 euros.

N O V E M B E R – Studio Visit Marcin Dudek and Amélie Bouvier

Marcin Dudek and Amélie Bouvier do not only have their studios in the same building, but they are a couple in real life, so we are curious to discover their dynamics and how they influence each other’s practice.

Marcin’s practice builds from autobiographical experience and expands to explore the broader phenomenon that shaped it. His works touch upon questions of power and aggression in the context of sport and cultural spectacle. Dudek’s installation ‘The Cathedral of Human Labor’ from 2013 is on permanent view at the Verbeke Foundation. In 2018, he presented a large installation at Manifesta 12 in Palermo, which was followed by a solo exhibition at the Wrocław Contemporary Museum.

Amélie uses images and diagrams from various sources, such as scientific and military archives, Google and science-fiction material, and explores lines between real and imagined perceptions. Her laborious drawings transform images and data in order to provide new perspectives on the identity and agency of place, time and epistemological building blocks.

When?  Monday 9 November at 7 PM
Where? Brussels (exact address upon registration)

Open to all Spark members; non-members will be admitted on a first come, first served basis and pay 40 euros.
