First Solo museum exhibition contemporary art; paintings, installation, video
Bonzenspeck und Prollgehabe is the first solo museum exhibition of Kati Heck (Düsseldorf 1979). Kati Heck offers her comments on today’s society on monumental canvases, in installations, drawings and video work. With a no-holds-barred approach, the Antwerp-based artist subtly enshrines her observations in visual elements, compositions and art historical references. Often depicting herself or people she knows, Heck’s work is laden with burlesque-like imagery and challenges social and artistic conventions with drama and irony. With consummate ease and a childlike eye, Heck’s narrative, techniques and themes converge with a contained energy, producing confrontational paintings where formalism and fiction meet.

The T-time accompanying the Kati Heck exhibition is on Sunday May 18 at 12.30 pm.

At the same time you can visit in the ProjectRoom of the museum Reflexion, a genuine willingness to explore communication, a project from MIM (Made In Mirrors) with Els Beusen and Hiroaki Kanai. (til May 12)
