Visual artist Michèle Matyn (born 1978, Wilrijk, Belgium) works with ancient stories, magic rituals and forgotten beliefs. She descends into what binds us together and what makes us human. Her work is permeated by an erratic mode of thought that determines our actions and decisions even now.
Matyn’s oeuvre consists of costumes, enlarged polaroid pictures, ceramic objects, performances and found art. She revitalises primordial art forms, making them usable once again. Her travels, the objects she finds, and the polaroid photos she shoots along the way often serve as the basis for her installations. Objects can become part of a performance: aside from being static things, they are also utensils she uses in action. This gives every component of her exhibitions a sense of movement, allowing it to transform into something else.
For her Club Solo exhibition, Matyn draws her inspiration from the legend surrounding the peat barge during the siege of Breda. Alongside this new work, she is also showing works from prior years. A number of performances are scheduled as well. For current information, please refer to our website, newsletters and social media channels.
