Time Landscapes, Bajay Sharma
09.09.21 - 23.10.21
These are drawings about a period of time, made during that time.
I started them in 2019 when I felt the need to voice in a manner different to what my hands are used to. That need arose as a reaction to what is politically unfolding in my surroundings. The slow death of democracy and the freedom to voice. To dissent. The instilling of hate and separation to divide and conquer. An old age formula.
Then our collective and individual lives were overcome. Turned into something that for us to fathom, bear and exist within, became the struggle. The new plague has revealed the frightening extent of our vulnerability. That hasn’t stopped the violence from continuing to manifest. That hasn’t stopped the breaking of all ideals. The choking of all voices who speak ‘too loudly’. That hasn’t stopped some from continuing to put their need for power above all.
These drawings represent an internal, external, emotional and political strife.

The gallery was created to present and promote in and from Brussels, the young contemporary art scenes from the « emerging » countries. Following of seasonal themed programmation of 5 to 7 solo-shows questioning the essence of frontiers, time and politics, different discours, medias, origins, and art practices. The seasons are as follow: India 2016/17, Africa and its diaspora 17/18, Central & South America 18/19 and Arabic Countries 19/20. All the shows in one season are interlinked not by the « origin » or « place of work » of the artist, but by the questions and « Propos » defended by each artist.
