Herman Van Ingelgem
10 December 2011 - 21 January 2012
For his solo presentation in 1646, Herman van Ingelgem investigates the rhythm of daily life: describing his own work, he himself speaks about the rhythm of murmur and sounds that occur while watching the show. Simple objects and their unexpected possibility to influence situations and relationships lie at the foundation of his recent work that, through changing constellations, uncovers the pendulous movements between our daily life and our reflections.
Herman van Ingelgem consistently sets off from his immediate surroundings. His work is based on every day architectural elements and recognizable objects. Like a cluster of gears, it grafts itself onto existing reality and generates a (sometimes minimal) fluctuation in systems of meaning. His work questions our expectations and ideas concerning space, presentation, representation and how we handle our private experiences.
