BERNARD VILLERS LA COULEUR MANIFESTE

Thursday 13.09.18 - Sunday 28.10.18
Museum

Public preview Wednesday 12 June from 6.00 pm.

Curators: Cécile Vandernoot and Daniel Dutrieux.

La couleur manifeste, the exhibition of works by Bernard Villers at the Botanique, asserts the poetic and sensory force of colour. Colour is certainly manifest. Rather than merely present, it is the very subject of his work. Unhindered by any realistic representation, it is free to tell its own story and to provoke emotional responses. As soon as you enter the exhibition, the gaze takes in the whole space, creating a singular reading path that brings together works that are sometimes thirty years apart. Though they may differ in terms of intentions and ideas, all interrogate the power of colour. As you begin to move, you will distinguish the effects on the surfaces of the works when a Prussian blue is juxtaposed with a Senegal yellow, or an English red is pitted against a Veronese green. At closer range, you become aware of the pictorial medium and the incidence of light upon it.
