Robin Vanbesien, Gravidade, 2015

Gravidade takes its title from the eponymous film, which is posed in the centre of a circular distribution of seven paintings in the exhibition space. The paintings partition a figure in the landscape, therefore forming a series of part-bodies as partial objects detached from both the figure and its imaginary surroundings. The expressive pictorial quality in the film’s staging of figures through poetic quasi-dialogue renders it as another sort of painting toward which the other images in the room gravitate. Hence the film provides an illusion of restoring the lacking totality of each image on its own.

Willem Oorebeek lives and works in Brussels. The main focus on his artistic production is the question of image and representation utilizing different printing processes, fully employing the printing procedure’s inherent principles of juxtaposition and stratification in order to explore themes of repetition, multiplication, serialization and order. More recently he has had solo shows at the Gallery Quadrado Azul (Lisbon, 2014), A.VE.NU.DE.JET.TE - Institut de Carton (Brussels, 2012), Robert Miller Gallery (New York, 2011), Modern Art Gallery (London, 2011) and Culturgest (Lisbon, 2008). His group shows include: Grazer Kunstverein (2013), Generali Foundation (Vienna, 2011), Fundació Antoni Tàpies (Barcelona, 2011) and Hamburger Bahnhof (Berlin, 2009). He is co-organizer of the Wiels Residency Programme in Brussels.

Robin Vanbesien lives and works in Brussels. His recent solo and group exhibitions include ‘lighting the throat = lighting the throat’, Objectif Exhibitions (Antwerp, 2014); ‘stray fire / ships to sink like this’, Rupert (Vilnius, 2014); ‘F. Hodler’ (with Willem Oorebeek), Pinacoteca (Vienna, 2014); ‘duty-bound away from the keyboard of the screen of my face’, WIELS Project Room (Brussels, 2014) and ‘A Means to a Place’, Mu.ZEE (Ostend, 2012). Among his artistic residencies are Maumaus Residency Programme (Lisbon, 2014/15), Capacete (Rio de Janeiro, 2014), Rupert (Vilnius, 2014) and Wiels Residency Programme (Brussels, 2013). He is the author of the artist book ‘Instant Ruins’ (MER. Paper Kunsthalle, 2012).

The conversation will be in English and takes place in the context of Robin Vanbesien’ exhibition Gravidade which runs until 22.03.2015.
