LUÍS LÁZARO MATOS Summer Waterfalls & Autumn Leaves

Exhibition : Friday 20 September → Saturday 14 December

rue August Orts, 20 28 - 1000 Brussels map

For his first presentation in Belgium, Luis Lázaro Matos designed a stage-like environment built out of a mural, drawings and sculptures. Surrounded by fictional architecture structures combining crystal palaces and skateparks, the dream-like setting invites the audience to inhabit a waterfall where skateboards flow down the stream. The poems drawn in the boards choreograph a friction between shared and intimate dynamics, which signal the artist’s sharp critique of contemporary social dynamics marked by digital liquidity while echoing Lázaro Matos’ pop sensibility.  text (c) João Laia As part of ‘We Love You’, a multidisciplinary programme on love beyond the romantic and the self - sep oct nov dec 2019. in collaboration w/ Galeria Madragoa, Lisbon EXPO  20.09 - 14.12.2019 WE TH FR SA 12:00 - 18:00 beursschouwburg Auguste Ortsstraat 20-28 1000 Brussels FREE ENTRY
