OPENING – The Act of a Line, Marijke De Cock

schedule

Thursday, December 2, 5:00pm - 9:00pm (CET)

St. Vincents is proud to invite you to Marijke De Cock's first exhibition of her series of wall sculptures. A captivating debut in which a spontaneously drawn line leads to a dedicated and collective creative process and where the mesmerizing volumes are composed of an infinite multitude of minuscule glass beads.

Her intriguing works are conceived as ornamental bas-reliefs, and juxtapose a shape that emerges intuitively with the rich tradition of a craft. For their elegant silhouettes originate from the moments when she allows her hand its own, automatic way, producing doodles that escape familiar reality. They provide her with drawings which she subsequently edits into blueprints and entrusts to a dedicated team of traditional artisans in India. Skilled specialists who carefully study these drawings and materialise them through an embroidery technique they have practised for generations.
