The Wall: Ana Karkar LOVECHILD

Nov 16, 2023 — Jan 13, 2024 | Brussels

Opening on November 16, 2023 from 5 to 8 pm

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to present The Wall: Ana Karkar, LOVECHILD.

Ana Karkar is a French-American artist who has lived and worked in Paris for many years. Viewers will experience her world in her exhibition LOVECHILD at Almine Rech Brussels: The Wall, where she pays tribute to her father, Edward Karkar. This selection of new pieces takes us on a journey through color and symbolism.

Karkar draws some of her references from major works of the Vienna Secession.  In her paintings of nudes, the bodies are twisted and blended in a danse macabre that evokes the work of Egon Schiele, or are joined in passionate freedom, recalling Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting The Kiss.
