Templon Gallery presents “From the Paper to the Wall” in Brussels
Until July 26, Galerie Templon is showcasing contemporary drawing by bringing together Omar Ba, Abdelkader Benchamma, Norbert Bisky, Oda Jaune and Chiharu Shiota around the group exhibition “From the Paper to the Wall”.
By bringing together these five international artists, Galerie Templon wanted to create a truly original and celebratory show. In this perspective, the artists were invited to appropriate the walls of the Brussels space, to create an array of unique wall installations. In direct dialogue with these ephemeral works, each artist presents a new series of drawings produced especially for the exhibition.
The five artists, members of the same generation and hailing from three different continents, Africa, Asia and Europe, represent a globalised world where different cultures meet, mingle and merge.
What their work has in common is the role given to drawing, elevated to the same rank as painting, sculpture and installations. Their drawing practice is thus given free rein to explore a range of tools, materials and supports as they cover the walls and appropriate the space.
The From the Paper to the Wall exhibition invites visitors on a journey where they can experience the same feelings of playfulness and freedom. It can be visited in the gallery from 6 June to 26 July and online via a dedicated website.
