The exhibition 'The Sun is My Only Ally' is the first solo project by Charbel-joseph H. Boutros in a Belgian museum. Artistic director Philippe Van Cauteren will have a talk with the artist.

In the work of Charbel-joseph H. Boutros (b. 1981, Bikfaya, Lebanon), invisibility is charged with intimate, geographical and historical layers, finding poetic lines that extend beyond the realm of existing speculations and realities. Being born in the midst of the Lebanese war, his art is not engaged in an explicit political and historical reflection, but is more accurately haunted by the said political and historical reflection.

In an artist talk with S.M.A.K.’s artistic director Philippe Van Cauteren, Boutros will discuss his work that creates a universe of imperceptible realities.
