AFTER WORK APERO WITH FREDERIK VERCRUYSSE
“WINDOWS”, SOLO SHOW
Spazio Nobile Gallery & Studiolo
Thursday 21st October, 19-21.00
Rue Franz Merjay 142 & 169, B-1050 Brussels
Frederik Vercruysse invites the visitor to confront the analogue image pushed to the limit, pixelated, becoming truer to Itself the closer one gets. Purposefully blurred and distorted in a decomposition that is recreated by our eye that tries to capture its presence, the composition of the image becomes impressionistic and is reborn as the pointillist work of a painter with small brushstrokes.
Windows thus conveys, in Vercruysse’s unique language, a body of poetic images that respond to one another between non-pictorial pictures, Window Stills, and composed objects reflecting the ‘mirror of the soul’, the Light Boxes and the Mirror Boxes. The glass, the windows, the glass plates of the photographer of yesteryear become the common thread of this intense investigation. For years, Frederik Vercruysse has tried to combine an analytical, realistic, objective and documentary spirit in his photographic work. He uses the camera like a high-tech tool to produce images in which the frame is entirely staged. By distancing himself, he assembles fragments of the images that he produces over time, to compose lyrical, even hidden, narratives. He thus passes on the feeling of existence, presence and absence, light and its intense rays.
