Press release

Platform is the title of the summer exhibition at the Almine Rech Gallery in Brussels.The show mainly brings together the artists represented by the gallery, but works by guest artists are also included as well as some design objects. The exhibition follows Telephone Paintings, a show that was created for the Art Basel stand in 2012 and which presented only ‘paintings’. Although the works that make up Platform are very diverse, this time the display consists exclusively of ‘sculptures’.

The red thread running through Telephone Paintings was wallpaper specially designed for the show and which served as a backdrop for the works. For Platform, the red thread is the pedestal on which the various pieces rest. Conceived like a huge white podium measuring 17 metres and filling the exhibition space from one end to the other, this platform, similar to a catwalk, stages and gathers all these works…
