30 Years Stephan Balkenhol & Deweer Gallery – A Brilliant Story since 1987
This year, Deweer Gallery celebrates its 30-year collaboration with sculptor Stephan Balkenhol. The reputed gallery in Otegem was the first non-German gallery to represent Balkenhol already from 1987 and witness his development from outsider to established artist of international allure. This anniversary will not go by unnoticed! Be sure to mark your calendar for Sunday, October 22 from 2:30 to 6pm, for the opening of the major solo exhibition 30 Years Stephan Balkenhol & Deweer Gallery – A Brilliant Story Since 1987, in the presence of the artist. The exhibition runs until December 10. Especially for this occasion, the celebrated artist has created a new bronze sculpture. For more information, contact the gallery.
George Little: Split Bisque
Under the title Split Bisque, George Little (1988) prepares his second solo exhibition at Deweer Gallery. The British artist let us know that the lobster—more specific the chela’s (claws) of this delicacy—will be the common, visual thread through the exhibition. The child of a historically important chef and a childhood spent out the kitchen doors in London’s Soho, Littles works are often overwhelmed by references to food and its etiquette of display. His work reads as the investigation (and celebration) into nostalgia to an ideal of Southern European intellectualism and its home in the interiors of bars, cafe’s and restaurants.
