after the goldrush
Duo exhibition together with Guy Rombouts at Annie Gentils Gallery, Antwerpen showing new work and opening performance by Verdonck.
“With my work I want to punch holes in the ‘reality’ to which we seem to be subjected because we think it is fundamentally unchanged. I start from images or situations which I rebuild into an artwork, into a temporary monument or wry joke. I see my work as an instrument, a tool to engineer something, in this case a social sculpture: the fact that people come together, talk, have opinions and disagree, raises the question: what shall we do?”.
