THOUSANDS OF LIGHT YEARS FROM HERE – JONATHAN SULLAM
Irène Laub Gallery – Brussels
January 11 – February 02, 2019

Visual artist Jonathan Sullam resorts to ever-changing moods and genres by advocating a protean-based body of work. Over time he has developed a visual language using paradoxical approaches when apprehending objects. These tend to convey an emotional scape through conflicting interpretations of the referential usage or status. Jonathan Sullam‘s artworks all reveal a state of precarious equilibrium: they seek to capture the tensions preceding a fall or an ascent. Installations, sculptures and images all appear to be suspended in time and space.

Paul McCarthy
Xavier Hufkens – Brussels
April 24 – May 25, 2019

American artist Paul McCarthy is known for his wide-ranging and often provocative and disturbing oeuvre, which encompasses performance, photography, film, multimedia installations, sculpture, drawing and painting. Messy, antagonistic, sexually explicit and politically charged, McCarth‘s output takes aim at consumerism, popular culture and our innermost fears and neuroses, such as sex, bodily fluids and human orifices. While he regularly appropriates icons of popular culture and childhood, including gnomes, Santa Claus, Barbie, Snow White and Heidi in his work, McCarthy inevitably recasts his characters as violent, malicious and depraved.

Hanna Moon & Joyce NG: English as a second language
Somerset House – London
January 25 – April 28, 2019

Photography exhibition showcasing the work of two of the most exciting photographers working in fashion today, celebrating the vitality and importance of fresh perspectives within fashion photography in our globalised and interconnected world.

Employing an otherworldly and playful approach to their practice, Hanna Moon and Joyce Ng incorporate cultural signifiers, set design and fashion to present their unique take on Western aesthetics and fashion ideals. Bringing distinct Asian perspectives to their work, they challenge the concept of ‘otherness’ and reflect upon the power fashion photography holds in shaping our perceptions of beauty, style and taste.
