Pas de côté
March 21 to May 3, 2009
Curator _ Sylvain Campeau
A Canadian artist born in Rotterdam, Wyn Geleynse has stood out for more than twenty-five years for his use of film and video images in installations, sometimes even incorporating photographic images. His stagings of images are constructed around the concept of memory without, however, making it entirely possible to grasp their content. The short fictional stories he creates can only leave the viewer asking for more in the face of their lack of narrative completion. The exhibition Pas de côté, organised by the curator Sylvain Campeau, nevertheless reveals a new aesthetic approach in the artist’s work. The installation aspect has been eclipsed somewhat, giving rise to projections of more imposing dimensions. Taking over EXPRESSION’s space with his video works, Wyn Geleynse proposes an encounter between still and moving images while at the same time creating an impression of narrative generated by the subtlety of his montage.
Presentation by Wyn Geleynse and Sylvain Campeau Saturday, March 21 at 2:00 PM.
Opening Saturday, March 21 at 3:00 PM.
