Passage, Angel Vergara, 2017 LED wall, video loop, 6’45
In relation to our REDISCOVERY part we confront and extend our booth with a group exhibition. For the Prime section we envisioned Belgian artists Michel Mouffe, Angel Vergara, Ann Veronica Janssens, Renato Nicolodi, Lucia Bru.

Angel Vergara’s initial inspiration for this work was the five conferences given by Charles Baudelaire in Brussels in 1864, a few years before his death, on the subjects of Eugène Delacroix, Théophile Gautier and certain aspects of his own Artificial Paradises… This starting point formed a leitmotif that made it possible to imagine a direct, almost natural association with Marcel Broodthaers and the relationship that these two 'visionaries' of modernity maintained with literature and art, journalistic writing, critical discourse and, of course, with Brussels.

Coincinding with Art Brussels, The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Brussels presents From Scene to Scene, an exhibition of Angel Vergara’s large video paintings. These painted films in From Scene to Scene evoke and echo the five lectures of French poet Charles Baudelaire’s during his stay in Brussels.

Ryuji Tanaka’s non-figurative work is most worthy of REDISCOVERY. Beginning in the 1960s, Tanaka set his sights on abstraction and evolved a unique style with a large, hard plane of colour made of a thick heap of natural traditional mineral pigments in the centre of his paintings.
