Platform 102 invites you to the Public View for artist Léa Belooussovitch which opens our 2015/16 season.
Belooussovitch is the recipient of The Moonens Prize (2014) and a co-founder of the artists-collective Friche. She has garnered a strong reputation among the Brussels art scene for her discipline in researching difficult subject matter from specific sources for her artwork.
Belooussovitch will install a series of photographs and drawings at Platform 102 from two conceptual starting points: First - from an interest in the way media and geography shape our thinking and behaviour towards tragic events; and Second - by a reframing of our desensitization towards such events through subtle aesthetic approaches which initiate dialogue about our acceptance of world predicaments from news sources. The works demonstrate the urgent need to think beyond the 'elsewhere' of media by memorializing current international situations.
Léa Belooussovitch: Public View is on Sunday 6 September 2015 from 15h to 18h and runs until 15th October 2015 by appointment.
