Opening exhibition Kris Martin - Mauro Antonio Pawlowski solo | 06.03.2020

Kris Martin Bee

We are delighted to invite you to the opening of EXIT in S.M.A.K. on Friday 6 March 2020, from 8 pm onwards. Mauro Antonio Pawlowski will also be present at 9 pm to perform in one of the museum rooms.

From 7 March 2020, you can become better acquainted with Kris Martin’s eloquent oeuvre in the first retrospective of his work to be staged in Belgium. Departing from objects, he creates sculptures that raise questions about concepts such as transience, identity and death, themes that have long traversed art history.

In Belgium, Martin is best known for his sculpture ‘Altar’, which is now on view in Ostend and outside St. Bavo’s Cathedral. He also makes a subtle nod to Van Eyck’s work. His ‘Eve and Adam’ (2017), for example, will make you look differently at the two figures from ‘The Ghent Altarpiece’ (1432).

With solo concert by Mauro Antonio Pawlowski at 9 pm.
