FR/ Pour l’inauguration de son nouvel espace, Aeroplastics propose une grande exposition dont le titre fait écho à l’incertitude dans laquelle est plongé notre monde contemporain : Come What May. Plus de trente artistes ont été conviés, chacun offrant une réflexion personnelle et originale sur les défis que l’humanité est amenée à relever dès aujourd’hui, qu’ils soient de nature écologique, sociale, humaine ou économique. Pour autant, il ne s’agit pas de produire un manifeste, ni un plaidoyer : l’événement est avant tout une occasion de réaffirmer la ligne esthétique suivie par Aeroplastics depuis ses débuts, caractérisée par un goût pour l’audace et l’expérimentation, la diversité, le sens caché des images et des mots, mais aussi l’humour et le second degré. Les peintures, sculptures, vidéos, dessins, photos ou installations rassemblées ici ne prétendent pas fournir de réponse aux interrogations nées du chaos présent ou à venir, mais invitent à une ouverture d’esprit qui, il n’est pas interdit de rêver, pourrait aider à infléchir le cours des choses.

EN/ For the inauguration of its new space, Aeroplastics is offering a major exhibition whose title echoes the uncertainty in which our contemporary world is plunged: Come What May. More than thirty artists have been invited to participate, each offering a personal and original reflection on the challenges that humanity must face today, whether they are ecological, social, human or economic in nature. However, it is not a question of producing a manifesto or a plea: the event is above all an opportunity to reaffirm the aesthetic line followed by Aeroplastics since its beginnings, characterised by a taste for audacity and experimentation, diversity, the hidden meaning of images and words, but also humour and the second degree. The paintings, sculptures, videos, drawings, photos and installations gathered here do not claim to provide answers to the questions raised by the present or future chaos, but invite an open-mindedness that, it is not forbidden to dream, could help to change the course of things.

Description

Founded in 1998, Aeroplastics is one of the most atypical of Belgian galleries. 

Based in Brussels, it represents and actively supports artists coming from all over the world, and with an approach that is resolutely multidisciplinary.  Its artistic line, mixing established names and younger artists of promise, favours inquiries that speak to the major issues facing today’s society and the role that the contemporary image can play there. Over the course of the years, Aeroplastics' director Jerome Jacobs has organized dozens of individual and group exhibitions. 

Originally situated in a stately urban hôtel de maître, the gallery occupied a former seminar built in the 1960s and a Modernist house on Roosevelt, Brussels.  This nomadic bent reflects Aeroplastics' desire to change the ‘traditional’ model of the art gallery, thereby providing a continual renewal of interest for these themes and works on the part of both general public and collectors alike.

As of September 2021, Aeroplastics has settled in a former car dealership in uptown Brussels. This new atmosphere will give the gallery an opportunity to reaffirm the aesthetic line followed since its beginnings, characterised by a taste for audacity and experimentation, diversity, the hidden meaning of images and words, but also humour and the second degree.
