Per Kirkeby Retrospective

Per Kirkeby Retrospective : And the "Forbidden Paintings" of Kurt Schwitters
BRUSSELS  •  Palais des Beaux-Arts  •  Ongoing
The Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels presents a retrospective of the work of Per Kirkeby (born in 1938), one of the key painters of the Danish avant-garde.Kirkeby prefers to  question the position and the perceptions of the observer. An artistic process that has seen him turn to different media (canvas, blackboards, paper, bronze, etc.) in an assertion of the freedom he finds, as a trained geologist, in the omnipresence of nature. It is in this context that the Kurt Schwitters room in the exhibition is so relevant. Here, Kirkeby is not confronted with the Dadaist, but with an unfamiliar, figurative Schwitters, in love with landscape.
