Picture this! Francesco Gennari
15/03/2009 - 31/05/2009
The work of the Italian artist Francesco Gennari (b. 1973, Fano, Pesaro) can be viewed as a contemporary answer to the heritage of the Arte Povera. Gennari's use of materials and his choice to resort to a minimal, pure aesthetics, result from a permanent, creative enquiry into meaning and symbolism. The transformation of the known results in a very broad reference frame, yet in first instance it is the fascination with the mystery that charges Gennari's work with an enigmatic force. For the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Gennari creates a new installation in which various leitmotifs that characterize the oeuvre appear together.
