About this event

366, as an artist's book plus an original drawing

366 is the result of a four-year, almost daily drawing practice in which 366 different appearances of the self were created. The portraits on paper were created performatively and intuitively with the materials at hand, such as coloured pencil, marker, pen, paint, watercolour, make-up, glitter or food scraps. They leave transient traces of an introspective look, an emotion, a fantasy. The character stares at himself sideways and each time ends up with a different reflection, colour and manipulation. An elongated process that from now on can see itself 366 times bundled in one box. The unfolding of the box releases the same number of shades, reflections, props and techniques. Leaf through 366 and attend the scarlet theatrical play.

366, as portrait carousels in a corridor of chambers

In addition to coming together in book form, Paepens' 366 characters also seek to take on a new appearance tailored to the BOEKS space. This time, there is not a corridor through which to walk in a single direction, but an enfilade of six darkened chambers in which to linger. Each room will host a carousel of 61 portraits. That makes 366 encounters in all.

In the BOEKS space, take your time to allow Paepens' collection of portraits to sink in, and also to browse the book selection linked to this theme in the Kunstenbibliotheek.

You are welcome to visit from Friday 21 May through 24 June (Mon.-Thurs. 9:00 AM-6:00 PM/Fri. 9:00 AM-4:00 PM).
