La Piscine, Roubaix, France

Press release

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to announce Bestiarium, Johan Creten's fourth solo exhibition with the gallery.

The deep meanings of his series reside precisely in the variety of gleaming tones of enamel that he uses, and this is indeed what makes each of these pieces unique and singular. Yet, although amazed by this technical brilliance, we will remember only the aura of these monumental beasts and the soul of these animal fables, where humor, melancholy, and cruelty are intertwined in a wild tango.

— Martha Kirszenbaum, curator and writer.
