Lynda Benglis, who will turn 80 in October, returns to Brussels with Nœuds et nus, a group of paper sculptures in ethereal nude tones as well as large-scale bronzes. The exhibition will shine a spotlight on the sensuous tactility at the heart of Benglis’ oeuvre. Although paper and bronze couldn’t be more different, both materials share a similar capacity for physical transformation. Paper softens under the influence of the primal elements of fire and water and bronze becomes molten. This fleeting moment of mutability is what fascinates Benglis and lies at the heart of the exhibition.
