Andy Wauman: Tropicalization
After exhibitions in 2006, 2009, and 2012, Tropicalization is Andy Wauman’s fourth one-man show in Otegem. Since about two years, Andy Wauman (born in Wilrijk, Belgium in 1975) mainly lives in Bali, where his poetic-anarchist art has been influenced by what he himself describes as a kind of “tropicalization.” Influenced by the world and culture of surfing, by feeling free on a remote island, the tropical climate and a life within nature, the character of his art has become a bit more playful. And as a consequence of his contact with local craftsmen, the artist started experimenting with a number of new technics and materials. But even when Wauman has exchanged his skateboard for a surfboard, the ambiguity, anger, and romance his art is known for, persist. Just like the importance of language for his artistic practice in general.

Tatjana Gerhard: Disjecta
For Belgian Swiss artist Tatjana Gerhard (Zürich, Switzerland, 1974 / lives and works in Ghent, Belgium) it is the third one-person show at Deweer Gallery. In the new paintings that are now brought together under the exhibition title Disjecta, the total deconstruction of the human body and, by extension, of the world, is the central theme. Unlike anybody else, in her paintings and in her exhibition as a whole, Gerhard knows to restore the consistency of her fragmented view on man and his world in a most brilliant pictorial and poetical way. The combination of explosive colour shades and at once effective and harmonious compositions of disjointed limbs and impossible postures keep fascinating us endlessly.
