Germany - Stuttgart - Württembergischer Kunstverein - Michaël Borremans - Eating the Bread07/03/2011
February 20 - May 1, 2011
The Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart is presenting a comprehensive solo exhibition with over one hundred works by Belgian artist Michaël Borremans. Alongside paintings, drawings, and filmic works from the past ten years, there will be a series of new works that are being exhibited in Germany for the first time.
In his works, Borremans traces the contradictions and conflicts of human existence: between self-assertion and dissolution, the individual and the collective, desire and angst, control and loss, the moral and the abysmal. Being shown are illusions of identity, freedom, and the controllability of the world, which the artist presents to us with its wealth of instability.
The exhibition is to be accompanied by a catalogue published by Hatje Cantz Verlag. Following the presentation at the Württembergischer Kunstverein, the it will travel to the Kunsthalle Budapest (Műcsarnok).
