What’s on in Brussels: La Vie matérielle

La Vie matérielle – a new exhibition presented by Centrale – is a dialogue between 12 artists from Italy and Belgium. The focus of the exhibition is to explore the link between art and life.

The title of the exhibition is drawn from the collection by Marguerite Duras, highlighting the links between artistic development and personal experience.

The works in the exhibition are defined by a constant dialogue between ordinary everyday life and inner and intimate life – a tension between aspiration and reality.

A consistent theme in the exhibition is the reusing of everyday objects and offering them a new life that transcends their usual use.

The artists featured in this exhibition are Chiara Camoni, Alice Cattaneo, Elena El Asmar, Serena Fineschi, Ludovica Gioscia, Loredana Longo, Claudia Losi, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Léa Belooussovitch, Gwendoline Robin, Lieve Van Stappen, and Arlette Vermeiren.

The works included in the exhibition represent a diversity of disciplines, including collage, video, illustration, and sculpture.

La Vie matérielle is presented by Centrale from 9 December until 13 March
