10 September - 29 October 2017 at the Annie Gentils Gallery
The work of the Antwerp artist Wesley Meuris (1977) examines in depth the presentation systems which occupy exhibition spaces. This is how he has built, like a craftsman, museum and zoological furniture. However, these stereotyped structures are empty, and clearly will remain so. An object ordinarily intended to show is now something to be looked at and is straightway transformed into a sculptural object. A conceptual task covering the monstration processes which recalls the inheritance of Marcel Broodthaers who had already, with his Musée d’Art Moderne Département des Aigles, raised similar concerns in 1968.
For our exhibition Wesley Meuris creates new sculptures and collages.
