Located in the new architectural district in the south of Antwerp, Everyday Gallery highlights artistic practices that defy the boundaries of traditional art disciplines and develop beyond the confines of the gallery’s walls. Home to both emerging and mid-career artists, the gallery is committed to durable, long-term creative investment, providing coaching, mentoring, and representation to artists in all stages of their career. At the core of Everyday Gallery’s activities lies the conviction that art can act as guide, both in our own lives and on a communal level.
Design Miami/ Basel 2021 Exhibition – Everyday Gallery
In the eclectic collages of objects, bits and pieces collected all over the world come together in ways practical, and logical, though possibly only in the artist’s mind. All his finds eventually seem to fall into place. Starting with the mere conception of a chair, rather than with a set-out plan or sketch, the works are intuitively construed out of an archive that one can only imagine the dimensions of. Things forgotten by others, precious for him, were all once designed for their own purpose. Here they find their fit as a base, a closing system or a balancing element. The lamp perfectly shows the playful Cadavre Exquis working method of the crafter.
