Albertina

Albertinaplatz 1

These works represent a broad panorama of the French art of drawing. Seminal exponents of realism take their place beside works by renowned impressionist artists; magical, suggestive works of symbolism, such as noirs by Odilon Redon, are joined by the no less abstruse and yet pointillist chalk sketches by Georges Seurat. Sun-drenched landscapes from the south of France by Paul Cézanne find a place for themselves next to the new goddesses of the 19th century: from prostitutes and dancers - viewed from the hidden vantage point that Degas gives us and, as seen by Renoir and Maillol - nudes who, lost in contemplation, remain impervious to our watchful eyes as they succumb to the banalities of everyday life.

Le masculin singulier est un sujet. A un moment donné, il choisit son camp, son champ d’expression. Designer de l’objet, il propose dans le contexte ouvert de la galerie, l’impact de sa réflexion. Homme par nature, il s’invite dans la grande diversité du genre humain et s’expose à l’étude et la classification. Trois genres s’imposent: Le designer sportif, qui se prononce pour la performance, il engage une lutte, un dépassement de soi et soumet la matière qui prend forme.
Le designer poète, qui rêve le lien avec un décor idéal et bucolique. Il glane au hasard de son itinérance, les ingrédients de son décor. Le designer scribe, prolongeant à la pointe de sa plume, son désir dans le volume, une pensée inscrite comme un graffiti au mur de la maison.
Masculin pluriel(s), designer pluriel(s), un genre très humain en somme.

Painting is the game. Why play the game of painting? Because painting is marked by an original division between the painted surface and the support and between paint and colour. This division entails unprecedented distributions and combinations.
It is precisely in the contemporary period of conservatism and correctness that Joris Ghekiere (1955, Kortrijk) engages in painting to reshuffle the deck.
