Art On Paper, the Brussels Contemporary Drawing Fair 2018
Sep 5th – 9th 2018
For Art on Paper 2018, KETELEER GALLERY presents a new project by Belgian artist Antoine Roegiers. The soloshow at the fair will be called "La dernière valse", and is inspired by a recently discovered painting by James Ensor from 1891, called "Squelette arrêtant masques". Antoine Roegiers re-interpreting this Ensor painting is a continuation of art history and his contribution to it. He will show 13 new drawings (pencil and acrylic paint on paper) of the two main figures dancing. Roegiers makes these drawings to produce a moving painting of it afterwards. This video work makes the original painting coming to life, giving it a new function and new interpretation in his typical and recocgnisable style. This video work will be shown alongside the drawings. This is a first presentation of Antoine Roegiers' carnaval theme which he will explore extensively in the coming years, as he is currently working on a big installation with videowork and drawings on this theme
