Jelle Van Hulle creates for Concertgebouw Brugge

Concertgebouw Brugge is working hard to promote contemporary art. And it's not just artists like Luc Tuymans who get to work there. His "Angel" is a wonderful addition to the permanent collection of Concertgebouw. Jelle Van Hulle was given the opportunity to exhibit his work in the Concertgebouw Café. But... rather than picking 10 of his favorites from his collection and put them up in the small but special location, Jelle started from scratch. This lead to a unique collection of work created specifically for this venue. Jelle Van Hulle's work is fragile in two ways. First, technically: the works are video stills printed on packaging tissue paper using low tech inkjet printers. Second, content wise: the artist refers to our fast moving media society and succeeds in showing us the different layers of what we see, making you look at least twice to see the essence... A wonderful discovery. The exhibition in the Concertgebouw Café is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11 am. Artist web site.

Update - Summer 2014 - This is actually an old post, going back to March 2012. Funny now you look back at all the things that happened since, like this thing called The Chapel of Awesomeness...
