Dauwens & Beernaert Gallery is honoured to present the group exhibition: ‘To kill a Mockingbird / Spaar de Spotvogel’ The exhibition features paintings and installations by four young graduates from Saint-Lucas School of Arts, Ghent: Toon Boeckmans (°1993, MFA Mixed Media), Isa De Leener (1993, MFA Painting), Charlotte Vandenbroucke (1993, MFA Painting) and Loïc Van Zeebroek (1994, MFA Painting). The exhibition lends its name from Harper Lee’s Pulitzer price winning Bildungsroman from 1960. Growing up and the loss of (childhood) innocence (symbolized by a mockingbird) is a prominent theme in Harper Lee's novel. The exhibition title both refers to the participating artists’ age, their first steps in a commercial art world (does this involve a loss of innocence?), as well as to the central themes of the exhibition: the metaphorical potential of birds and other animals, the homo ludens and the importance of the play element of society.
