The Intimate & The World
The Intimate & The World highlights a selection of works by three contemporary Brussels artists: an installer, Marianne Berenhaut, and two painters, Sarah Kaliski and Arié Mandelbaum. Beyond their singularities, they share obvious common traits in their relationship to the world, their imagination, their biography and their respective quest. They all play incessant trips back and forth from the intimate of suffering and desiring bodies to the horrors inflicted by history. These three artists are not school. They do not constitute an aesthetic community, but a common destiny and the memory revisited – the generation of Brussels Jewish children who have survived the extermination – unite them and compel each to make visible, to update a common time founder of their journey of life and creation. Everyone speaks to us in his own way of a world they share.
