Elias Ghekiere – Expo @ Z33
We are happy to announce that visual artist Elias Ghekiere (°1991, Hasselt) has been selected for the Z33_VONK presentation program of 2022.
The exhibition puts forward a selection of objects and paintings, emphasizing the relations between different mediums and modes of representation.
The title, Fluid grammars, refers to a model of making in which the various references and mediums lose their rigidity as they are constantly in a transitional and interchangeable state. This results on the one hand, in an overturning of their referential direction, and on the other, consequentially, in providing a space for co-existence, communication and mediation. Apart from diverse art historical references, there is a focus on images, materials, and phenomena that are tainted by historic or contemporary biases, such as decoration, ornament, pastiche, and crafts. The inclusion of these imageries and aesthetics is indicative of a belief in art as a way to connect through engagement, rather than divide through categorization.
In Z33 he presents his first solo exhibition. This is the result of the annual collaboration between Z33 & VONK to stimulate the development and visibility of a promising visual artist.
