  • Present / Absent


    February 28 to April 19, 2015

    Galerie Zwart Huis, Knokke, Belgium

    For the exhibition "Present / Absent" Kim De Ruysscher transforms Galerie Zwart Huis into a clothing store. Garments have been tried on, put back sloppily or have remained untouched. The presence and absence of man is strongly felt. Someone has just fitted a white shirt. A pair of pumps remain untouched. The toys lying around stands in stark contrast with the stiff clothing store, not the place for a playing child. The ironed shirt, the tie, prescribed bowtie or a jacket show an etiquette of which De Ruysscher questions the sense and nonsense. This duality is also found in the frozen form of an object that has no function in the functional world anymore. The object only has a function in the realm of visual arts.

    14 June 2014
    Huis Hellemans, Edegem (Belgium)

    Tussen tijd en werkelijkheid. 

    Op de benedenverdieping zien we sculpturen die naakt als object trouvé of als ready made functioneren. Op de eerste verdieping ondervinden de sculpturen een sacrale context waar het discours van de sokkel, de omkadering van het beeld plaats vindt. Deze voeding draagt ertoe bij dat de sculpturen in hun pure intimiteit kunnen ervaren worden.

    Deze expositie wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door Stroom Den Haag (NL), Orfeo en Gemeente Edegem (BE)

    The Belgian artist Kim De Ruysscher is known for its sculptures using natural materials like Sandstone as he used for one of his latest work A Second Life (see image above) – an old tree lies defeated in rough sawn parts, subject to the laws of gravity and sloppy winds through space.

    "Throughout history people have claimed that it is the end of art, that there is no longer anything new. I say it is the beginning. Consumerism is no longer the most important thing, it is of course an aspect but what is important now is the quality; it is not made in China."—Kim De Ruysscher, exhibiting at Preview Berlin Art Fair
