Weapon Of Beauty


Art Brussels 2012

As usual Art Brussels was a visual overdose, but there’s always a few works that keep lingering in your mind. Natural selection, I suppose.

Here’s a few likes: (click for larger images)


Michiels Ceulers ‘Sexuelle Selektion und elterliche Fürsorge’ (2009) at Juliette Jongma, Amsterdam
Ceulers seems to be doing really well. He’s now represented by galleries in Antwerp, Amsterdam, London, Zurich, New York and Los Angeles.


Benjamin Verdonck with a solo show at Galerie Folrent Tosin (Berlin)


…and also a similar Verdonck totem at Tim van Laere Gallery (Antwerp)


Kati Heck at Tim van Laere gallery


Bénédicte Henderick at Triangle Blue gallery (Stavelot) (the booth also had some nice Mil Ceulemans work)


a bit of fun by Micha Payer + Martin Gabriel at Christine König Galerie (Vienna)


Really liked Ivan Argote’s  ‘All My Girlfriends’ (2007-2009) which shows him taking phonecam shots with random billboard girls as his girlfriend.


Folkert de Jong with his take on Mondriaan’s ‘Boogie Woogie’


I have a soft spot for Barry McGee.

Trend: a bunch of London galleries with very similar Damien Hirst produce. Which was very ‘yawn’. So NO pictures. You know them, you’ve seen them, you’ve said ‘Meh’.
