Sous le commissariat de Cécile Bourne-Farrell

La galerie Irène Laub est ravie d’accueillir un group show international intitulé « Resilience, an aptitude », sous le commissariat de Cécile Bourne-Farrell.

Ce projet d’exposition parle de la capacité de résilience inscrite au plus profond de chaque être humain qui permet à chacun de vivre l’instant présent, de le dépasser, autant que de le partager. Il existe d’innombrables façons d’être résilient et chacun des sept artistes choisis dans cette proposition développe sa propre façon de transmettre son aptitude à être résilient.

Iván Argote nous invite à marcher sur les mots et Corinne Silva propose d’observer les impacts de balles dans l’écorce des arbres à Sarajevo, tandis qu’Eirene Efstathiou dessine la façon dont les insurgés se cachaient pendant la guerre civile grecque. Michèle Magema met en œuvre des stratégies visuelles visant à contrer les dommages de la période coloniale au Congo et Shiraz Bayjoo montre des endroits hantés de l’Ile Maurice. Plus que jamais présent, le capitalisme sauvage usurpe les ressources naturelles autant qu’il impose ses propres valeurs. Pour résister à l’aliénation que traversent les pays postcoloniaux, Younes Baba- Ali et Yonamine optent pour une stratégie poétique.

RESILIENCE, AN APTITUDE
Iván Argote, Younes Baba-Ali, Shiraz Bayjoo, Eirene Efstathiou, Michèle Magema, Corinne Silva and Yonamine

Curated by Cécile Bourne-Farrell

Exhibition to discover from 10.03.20 until 11.04.20
Opening on Saturday 7.03.20, 2pm - 6pm

Irène Laub Gallery is delighted to welcome an international group show curated by Cécile Bourne-Farrell, entitled “Resilience, an aptitude”.

This exhibition project addresses the capacity of resilience, which is present at the core of each human being and allows everyone to live in the present, to exceed it, as well as to share it. There are infinite ways to be resilient and each of the seven artists presented have their own way of sharing their aptitude to be resilient.

Ivàn Argote is inviting us to walk on words and Corinne Silva proposes to observe bullet impacts in the bark of trees in Sarajevo, while Eirene Efstathiou is drawing the way insurgents were hiding during the Greek civil war. Michèle Magema is developing visual strategies to counter-act the damages of colonial period in Congo and Shiraz Bayjoo is showing haunted places in Mauritius. Still present today, savage capitalism is usurping natural sources as much as it is imposing its own values. Younes Baba-Ali and Yonamine operate on a poetic level to resist the alienation post-colonial countries are going through.

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.
