1. Jasper de Beijer at Livingstone Gallery (group Show)

     

    De tentoonstelling The End of War opent op 11 november 1918. Die dag, 100 jaar geleden, werd een wapenstilstand afgeroepen voor de Eerste Wereldoorlog. Een vredesverklaring is nooit getekend. 21 jaar later wel een oorlogsverklaring, het begin van de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Die oorlog zou het einde zijn van alle oorlogen. Die End of War is er jammer genoeg nooit gekomen.

    In deze tentoonstelling schetsen kunstenaars beelden van oorlogen, conflicten en wapengeweld. Soms van grote schoonheid, soms confronterend, soms alleen om ons aan te zetten er over na te denken.

    WINGING IT: FIGURES OF FLIGHT
     
    17 February – 26 May 2018 
     


    The Brazilian Suitcase – footage (around 1979)

     
    Barely a hundred years have gone by since Nungesser and Coli’s L’Oiseau Blanc (‘The White Bird’) was been flying over the cliff at Étretat. Five hundred years separated Leonardo da Vinci’s sketch for a flying machine, the Ornithopter, from the aviator Louis Blériot’s Libellule (‘Dragonfly’). Both of them shared the same abiding and intrinsically human desire to leave the ground on which we humans are rooted and to launch themselves into the sky. From Icarus to Jules Verne and the superheroes of comics, the dream of wings to fly with has been a feature of our imagination. 
    The group exhibition À tire-d’aile explores the urge to fly and interpretations of it in contemporary creation. From the late 19th century and into the machine age, aviation gave practical shape to that dream. Photography and film were linked with the relevant inventions from the outset – both the exploits and the failures. Étienne-Jules Marey’s experiments with photography helped crack the mystery of bird flight. Later, photographers were witnesses and recorders of the appearance of aeroplanes and their pilots in the sky. Then, when whimsical minds and jokers got involved, photography revealed its ability to forge and fake reality, as exemplified by studio images that acted as precursors of the flight simulator. 
    Photographers responded naturally to the men who dreamt of flying and their need to give evidence of their deeds, creating images that ranged from the documentary to the poetic, sometimes dramatic and sometimes downright droll. 
    The exhibition will combine contemporary creations and archival and documentary images. The border between the documentary and the poetic is sometimes blurred. Sjoerd Knibbeler’s work, for example, which documents the ground routine of the French aerobatic display team, the Patrouille de France, is staged in such a way that it is like the film of a fairy ballet. Elsewhere, XiaoXiao Xu presents a collection of whimsical constructions by Chinese farmers. 
    Time is suspended in mid-flight, the fantasy frozen in mid-air… the fall may not be far off, but the discreet images here won’t let on.
