Chloe Wise 'Torn Clean'

Apr 24 — May 25, 2024 | Brussels

Opening on Wednesday April 24, 2024 from 5 to 9pm

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to present Torn Clean, Chloe Wise's fourth solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from April 24 to May 25, 2024.

An ecstatic mouth, an elated smile, a tear-filled eye, a Baudelairean mane of hair, the sudden appearance of a breast, movements that seem to graze or caress the flesh—piece by piece, Chloe Wise makes bodies appear, coming to greet us, embrace us, then engulf us. We would like to be able to read their faces, and get to know them effortlessly, to easily categorize and digest their emotions at first glance. In response, the figures hold their poses, performing to perfection. We feel as if we are discovering a big, blended family, the artist’s clan of liberated figures, a band of sisters.
