Perruche situation #2: Julien Creuzet – L’âme, dans poitrine, oiseau-tonnerre fêlure, divine-colère. Méprisable, je planterais sabre, je traînerais blessure dans sable (…)

April 14 – April 22, 2018

Opening Friday April 13 from 6pm

Opening hours : Wed – Fri : 4-6pm, Sat: 3-6pm and by appointment

Perruche #2 presents the first solo exhibition by artist Julien Creuzet in Brussels. His multimedia installations use found objects, video, engraving and poetry toquestion the role of language for the individual and collective memory. Inspired by the philosophical reflections of Édouard Glissant, Julien Creuzet’s work focuses on the complex intersection of the history of Martinique and the events of European modernity. By blurring the border between technology and nature, the native and the foreign, high and low culture, he creates a spatial experience that is poetic and political at the same time.

Julien Creuzet (*1986) lives in Paris and holds a diploma from L’École des Beaux-Arts de Caen and a post-diploma from L’École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. His workhas been recently shown in solo presentations at Bétonsalon and Fondation Ricard in Paris (2018), SKETCH Gallery in Bogota and Documentation Gallery in Chicago (2017); besides, in large international exhibitions such as the Bienniale of Lyon, the 11th Rencontres de Bamako (2017) and the Dakar Bienniale (2016).

Saturday April 14 at 7.30pm, at Jester, Avenue de la Porte de Hal 24, 1060 Brussels:

As part of the solo exhibition by Julien Creuzet at Superdeals, the artist Pedro Oliveira presents his sound performance “QUELQUE CHOSE DE SUSPECT?”. The Brasilian sound artist developed the piece especially for a trio of Brussels based immigrant voices, conducted by Floris Lammens (Brussels Experimental).

The performance is followed by an artist talk with Pedro Oliveira, the artist Julien Creuzet and curator Jana J. Haeckel.

After the performance DJane Sylvia Iweanya will present a DJ Set.

Perruche situation #1: Bianca Baldi – Versipellis

January 26 – February 4, 2018

Opening Friday January 26 from 6pm

Saturday January 27 at 7pm : Lotte Arndt and Sammy Baloji in conversation with Bianca Baldi

Bianca Baldi’s solo exhibition Versipellis marks the beginning of the Perruche series, a new art program by Goethe Institut Brussels in collaboration with SUPERDEALS. The exhibition is part of Baldi’s long-term research project “Zero Latitude” (2012-present) that started in Brussels while the artist was reading the personal diaries of Colonial explorer Henry Morton Stanley at Africa Museum Tervuren. Her works take symptomatic events from the repertoire of Western European imperial history as a starting point to question their economic, political, geographical or mythological entanglements. In Versipellis she restages historical documents, setting the objects and images in scene as indices which reveal the seductive potential of the shifty image to transgress boundaries.
