UNIVERSAL FOLKLORE 
W/ FARAH ATASSI (PAINTINGS)
CURATED BY ILSE ROOSENS


JUNE 3 - OCTOBER 21, 2018

2D AND 3D SCULPTURES

Like Constant Permeke’s, the works of Farah Atassi and Tramaine de Senna manifest a keen interest in folkloric motifs. The artists copy and mix the imagery of objects that are often situated in an ethnographic or design context, such as carpets, masks or toys. In the first half of the twentieth century, Permeke and several of his contemporaries adopted the forms of African masks and sculptures. They were motivated by a fascination with the aesthetic qualities of the objects. 

Vernissage: 
Sunday, June 3, 2018: 11am / 11uur

Meet & Greet with Farah Atassi and Tramaine de Senna:
Sunday, September 2, 2018: 2 - 4pm / 14 - 16uur

Both artists will take you into the exhibition (during Permeke's Boekentuin).
