Born in 1963 in Ghent, Jan Van Imschoot has been living and working in France since 2013. Jan Van Imschoot’s exploration of the possibilities offered by painting have resulted in a body of work that draws its power from highly critical and dramatic themes and contains references to countless artists, from Tintoret to Luc Tuymans, Goya to Matisse. Jan Van Imschoot places his figures, decors and narratives at History’s margins, using assembled perspectives, strong tones, bodies in motion and brushwork he describes as ‘anarcho-baroque’. His work delves into a number of recurring motifs: freedom, censorship and the violence of political and ideological systems.

ECCE HOMO - group show




ECCE HOMO is based on a strong collaboration of Gallery GEUKENS & DE VIL with MARION DE CANNIÈRE and Belgian art-critic ERIC RINCKHOUT.
ECCE HOMO started several years ago in the mind of art historians Yasmine Geukens & Marie-Paule De Vil as a small group exhibition but evolved today into a grand event that takes place on several locations in the city of Antwerp.

« The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely » - group show



« The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely » will bring together 73 international artists in Oostende chosen by curators Jan Fabre and Joanna De Vos and will present 52 new creations of young and experienced artists.
The exhibition discusses the artist's quest and the duality of the creation, based on isolation and engagement.
Artists from different generations and different paths were invited to question the link between « Le radeau de la méduse » (1818) of Théodore Géricault and Jan Fabre's work « Le Radeau est (pas) solitaire (1986) ».

The curators have the intention to stimulate the city in order to make it (re)discovered. Besides the well-known museum, they looked for more unsual places like the Peperbusse restaurant, le 
Palais de Justice, the Eurpacentrum building, the stables of the Wellington track race or the crypts of the Sint-Jozef church.

« The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely » will be an artistic journey disseminated in 22 places of the « City by the sea » .
