Exhibition “Baglady (Buridan’s Bridge)” by ARE guest Guillaume Clermont
Hereby we would like to invite you for the exhibition Baglady (Buridan’s Bridge) by ARE guest Guillaume Clermont.
“There is no solution because there is no problem”, a wise man said once. A wiser woman answered to him, “There is no problem because there is no solution”. Sitting in the corner of my studio, eating a sandwich, Sancho simply replied, “What if we were just asking the wrong question again?”
Since 2005, Guillaume Clermont always paints the same skull. Taken from a sixteenth-century Flemish painting, this skull with a dislocated jaw has become the leitmotiv around which his work is articulated, the very origin of his artistic research.
His work could be described as post-Pop Art process-based art practice. Influenced by the history of painting, and by the radical reaction of some artists to it – notably Duchamp, Broodthaers, Viallat, Cadere and Di Matteo – but also by art movements such minimalism and conceptual art, his art practice follows a logic based on repeating motifs.
The opening will take place on 18th of March 2015 from 20:00.
Address: Hoge Bothofstraat 166, 7511 ZE, Enschede
