STUDIO VISIT OF FILIEP GILLISEN OCTOBER 8TH

fe4b85aa-2861-496b-b37e-cef14f64e073-1

Gilissen’s work stands in a well-known but under-researched tradition of art that sarcastically celebrates the uncelebratable: a tradition that may be said to have begun with the famous case of the in-house string quartet stoically, even cheerfully playing on while the Titanic was busy sinking to the bottom of the ocean; a tradition that was brought back to life during the outrageous Monty Python-directed funeral of Graham Chapman, the Python who had played the leading roles in both The Life of Brian and Monty Python and the Holy Grail; a tradition that has thrived especially well in the ultra-cynical ‘post-political’ era of globalization.

Filip Gilisen (1980) lives and works in Brussels.His work has been presented in venues such as M HKA, Antwerp (2014); Bucharest Biennial 6 ( 2014); Talinn Art Hall (2013);  MARTA Museum (2012); Kunshalle Nurnberg (2012); Liste 17 Performance Projeckt (2012); Witte De With (2011); Liverpool Biennial (2010), Komplot, Brussels (2009) and Nicc, Antwerpen (2009).

* Studio visit followed by a visit of his exhibition ‘Shine Bright Like A Star’ at Meesens Declercq
* and dinner at the gallery
