CECI N’EST PAS UN CONTE
Curated by Filip Luyckx
Joëlle Dubois, G.Küng, Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir and Heidi Voet
Opening on Thursday 28.02.19 at 6pm
Exhibition: 01.03.19 – 28.04.19

The exhibition's title comes from a text written by French philosopher Denis Diderot ("This is not a story", 1772), which follows the lives of two women in conflict with their partners. Even though the situation has a basis in reality, the author doesn't take a judgemental approach to the morality of his characters. Two and a half centuries later, this elusive tale appears under a new light - or maybe not completely. Indeed, people's lives are dictated by their time period, but even more so by their personal impulses. The four women artists presented in the exhibition experiment and explore new paths, up to the point were reality and fiction merge. And how can we immerse ourselves into the lives of others through stories and artworks without losing our own identity?

Description
Since 2016, Irène Laub Gallery exhibits established and emerging artists in Brussels and in a selection of international art fairs. Our represented artists are actively committed to questioning social, political and architectural spaces. They present a very diverse body of work – inculding installation, video, sculpture, painting and drawing – and display pure and powerful aesthetics. The gallery is intended as an adaptable experimentation space, allowing the artists to stretch the boundaries of their chosen discipline, either by testing and distorting the physical frame of the work itself, or by exploring its significance in the social sphere. In 2018, the gallery moved to a new location and developed an ambitious exhibition programme, dedicated to further a productive dialogue between international artists, curators and institutions.
