The gallery Jérôme Poggi is happy to participe to the upcoming edition of ART BRUSSELS that will take place from April 25th to 27th, 2014. For its second participation Jérôme Poggi has chosen to dedicate his booth to Flemish artist Wesley Meuris.
Entitled Sightseeing, the project curated for Art Brussels extends the dialog started between Wesley Meuris and the curator art critic Florence Ostende during the exhibition organized by the gallery in September 2013.
Gathering several new sculptures and some of Wesley Metris’s most characteristic works such as his famous fictional «Advertisement Projects» and some of his “Ground Maps” of imaginary institutions, the general project questions the idea of a fair as a space, place and time exhibition.
Born in in 1977, Wesley Meuris is today one of the most acclaimed Belgian artist of his generation, whose work has been presented in several publications.
The Casino du Luxembourg (Contemporary Art Center) devoted a huge monographic exhibition to him in 2012, for which criticism was particularly laudatory and voluminous. As an artist he recently designed and staged, the exhibition ‘Museum to Scale’ in response to the collector Ronny Van de Velde’s invitation. This exhibition was displayed at the Palais des Beaux Arts de Bruxelles in 2013 and today at the Baker Museum (Florida, USA).
Wesley Meuris is currently having a solo show at BF15 (Contemporary Art Center), in Lyon.
