Thomas Lerooy - Playground
15/10/2017 - 04/03/2018
For his exhibition, Playground in the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, the Belgian artist Thomas Lerooy (born 1981) plays willfully with the exhibition space. A playful, well-thought-out scenography underlining a disillusion of time and space, leads the spectator through a quirky presentation of drawings and sculptures. Lerooy's work is strongly related to classical sculpture through his thorough technical perfection and monumental presence, while at the same time referring to decay and regeneration. The exhibition is conceived as a sculptural trajectory, which, like his work, is characterized by an alienating tension between movement and inertia but equally balances between poetry and irony.
Exhibition realized with the support of rodolphe janssen and Nathalie Obadia gallery.
