KUNSTRAUM is pleased to invite you to the exhibition "TEMPORALITES" during the Parcours d'artistes in Uccle.
The perpetual movement, the unchanging, the cycles, the permanent changes which give rhythm to humanity since the dawn of time are at the heart of the exhibition.
You are invited to live the inner experience of time by discovering the « toiles organiques hors temps » from Erica Hinyot, the « photographies de mouvement et de chaos » from Thomas Vanoost and the « tracés à l’infini » from Guillaume Thunis.

We invite you to subscribe in advance for viewing the expo.
The Exhibition is organized as part of the Parcours d’Artistes d’Uccle. An initiative of the Alderman of Culture with the support of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.
The works are challenging. They are fueled by inherent tensions. Kunstraum gives you an intimate insight of some of the artists through a series of videos wherein the artist explains their unique way of interpreting South African culture.
Kunstraum invites you to discover our fourth artist Chris Soal . Born in South Africa, Chris Soal is currently living and working in Johannesburg.
Rooted in philosophy, Soal's sociological comments fuse, through his art, with our global ecological concerns.
Kunstraum invites you to discover our third artist Jean Du Plessis . Born in South Africa, Jean Du Plessis is currently living and working in Johannesburg.
His work is a process of self-discovery and improvement, avoiding figurative motifs as a way to explore non-familiar representations of human emotions.
Kunstraum invites you to discover our second artist Kendell Geers. Born in South Africa, Kendell Geers is currently living and working in Brussels.
Kendell creates work that aims to disrupt with a large range of references - from history of art, linguistics, poetry, popular culture, protest and play.
Kunstraum invites you to discover our first artist Usha Seejarim. Born in South Africa, Usha Seejarim is currently living and working in Johannesburg.
Usha's art practice lovingly celebrates and elevates otherwise exhausting and repetitive daily domestic work motifs.
Born into a working-class Afrikaans family during the height of Apartheid, Kendell Geers quickly found himself fighting a Crime Against Humanity on the front lines of activism and protest. From his strong experiences as a revolutionary, he developed a psycho-social-political practice that held ethics and aesthetics to be opposite sides of the very same coin, spinning upon the tables of history. In his hands, the discourse of art history is interrogated, languages of power and ideological codes subverted, expectations smashed and belief systems transformed into aesthetic codes.
"Describing himself as an AniMystikAktivist, Kendell Geers' work embodies a syncretic approach that weaves together diverse Afro-European traditions from Animism and Activism, to Alchemy, Mysticism and Ritual Magick. His strategies are without compromise because he believes that “Art changes the world - one perception at a time.”

Kunstraum is excited to display the photographic artworks of Stephane Noel.
About the Artist:
Stephane Noel is a Belgian photographer. In his work, Stephane is gloriously old-school, dedicating his professional efforts to explore the gum bichromate printing process, a 19th century technique
Stephan goes out into the world with a camera and an open heart, and comes back with images of heart-felt and respectful encounters with new friends. He then transforms those images with his old-fashioned photo techniques into enchanting artworks that capture a profound moment in our shared humanity.
His talent is innate, his techniques are classical, his eye is uniquely Belgian.
See the videos! and see you next time :-)
Reading the title “Clash Madrid”, thoughts and ideas of a violent and hostile clash come to mind, but far from it.
Four artists living in Berlin are coming to Madrid with their works to celebrate a three-day exclusive exhibition in the heart of Madrid’s Carabanchel art district with three friendly artists living in the city.
The logistically challenging exhibition stands under the sign of the possibilities of bringing together, of cohesion, of two different artistic environments from two places. The mediation of impressions, such as community, beyond cultural and geographical borders is the focus of the artistic clash. The exhibition stands in contrast to the tendency of demarcation prevailing in current events. The visitor is conveyed a sense of belonging, knowing full well that some of the artists come from Berlin. This exciting game of stimulus and emotion develops its power only in moments of closeness: as soon as people are ready to let themselves be grasped by art. Only in such a moment of nearness can art tell of the good life; only then awakens the sense of possibility that our present might need just as well.
“It is simply not a political act for a work of art to say how the world would be better,” writes philosopher Christoph Menke.
