For the seventh exhibition in the series “Matters of Concern | Matières à panser”, curator Guillaume Désanges presents “Les Indices de la respiration primitive” (“Signs of primal breath”), an exhibition by the French artist duo mountaincutters, at La Verrière, the Brussels art space of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, from June 19 to September 11, 2021.
“Invited to La Verrière for their first solo show in Belgium, where they have lived and worked since 2015, mountaincutters have devised a new project for the gallery, with a scenography that addresses its unique characteristics: the high roof, natural light, and the cubic geometry of the space. A continuance of their recent work on the dynamic transformation of matter, the present exhibition is the seventh in the series ‘Matters of Concern | Matières à panser’, and directly responds to its themes. ‘Matters of Concern | Matières à panser’ explores art curatorship from an ecological perspective, showcasing practices that run counter to the at times cynical overproduction of contemporary artistic output, and which enact a more mindful, humble engagement with raw materials, in a spirit of healing rather than mastery.” Guillaume Désanges
