From June 3 - October 25, 2018, 
I am please to announce an exhibition 
curated by Ilse Roosens of paintings by Farah Atassi
and a mixture of new and older works from my oeuvre
in Jabbeke through Mu.Zee in Oostende, Belgium

Translation (EN):
During the Summer Festival the Permeke Museum organizes an exhibition with contemporary art. The life and work of Constant Permeke is the inspiration for the invitation of two artists.

Farah Atassi (BE) and Tramaine de Senna (USA) will be guests in 2018. The use of folkloristic motifs connects them to Permeke. In the first half of the twentieth century Permeke and several contemporaries took over the forms of masks and sculptures from Africa. More and more artists then also studied the context surrounding these objects and became aware of their colored view of 'the other'.

Farah Atassi and Tramaine de Senna analyze motifs that occur in various art forms in different places around the world. They search for the layers of meaning within a universal visual language that completely disregards a division between high and low art.

September 2, 2018: 2 - 4pm / 14 - 16uur
Meet & Greet with Farah Atassi and Tramaine de Senna.
Both artists will take you into the exhibition (during Permekes Boekentuin).

Art Center Hugo Voeten - Solo Show - Tramaine de Senna - Curator: Lisa van Gerven




Text:
The Californian artist, Tramaine de Senna, is interested in the migration of forms in relation to material culture and political economies. Through a staging of her work as artifacts, de Senna cues a visual cinematic memory in relation to the viewer under which histories manifest. Next to older works, the emphasis of this exhibition will be on her most recent creations.


Tramaine de Senna (°1981, San Francisco, California) is currently based in Ghent where she is following an artist in residency at the HISK (Higher Institute of Fine Arts).

Curator: Lisa van Gerven
