The work of Peter Morrens (Belgium, 1965) is frankly explosive. With criticism and disruptive humor, he observes human existence: our daily use of language and social behavior, our existential doubts, the conventions in the art world and in political-social positions. His own creations and biographical anecdotes do not escape this critical gaze.
Morrens draws, writes and paints under various names and creates objects, publications and frequently long-term, intensive performances. He often revisits older works to deliberately break the chronology of his oeuvre. All of these aspects he brings together in large site-specific installations, in which the spectator’s perception and precise position are determining factors. The role he himself plays in his multiform, ever-changing oeuvre is that of disruptor.
Morrens is remodeling Club Solo as an exhibition venue, showing work from 15 minutes to 42 years ago.
