  • Exhibition from july 1st to octobre 15th 2006.

Vincent Lamouroux (1974) and Geert Goiris (1971) use distinct mediums, sculpture and photography, to deploy notions of time and space, landscape and composition, representation and abstraction, fiction and reality. They revisit a formal language extending from 1960s minimalist sculpture to the architectural and space-age utopias of the same period.

Vincent Lamouroux produces sculpture that is both organic and constructed, based for the most part on simple geometric forms. For the Grand Café, he presents a sculptural and cinematic system that transforms the space into a pure, dense ‘vertigo' inciting bodily and imaginary movement.

Physical displacement and travel play a large part in Geert Goiris' photographic practice. Deserted expanses marked by man's passage, interiors impregnated by the composition and lighting of 17th century Flemish painting, improbable abandoned architecture...

his photographs show us unreal, faraway places whose existence and closeness are simultaneously confirmed. The photographed scenes seem as if freed from gravity and provoke the effect of suspended time and space.  Thus both artists convey the sense of rarity that the experience of certain real or constructed places offers and invite us to share anew in the emotion of the ‘fantastic' at work in the earthly world.
