Pierre et Gilles
PIERRE ET GILLES ICON(S)

MAISON PARTICULIERE, BRUSSELS

From ‘icône’ in French to ‘icon’ in English, from holy image to visual sign, from the sacred image to the symbol, this fourteenth exhibition at Maison Particulière explores both the intellectual significance and the emblematic figures of icons. For Icon(s), the guest artistic duo Pierre et Gilles intentionally and spontaneously selected a mixture of genres “found in popular Indian culture”. Augmenting the works by Pierre and Gilles are the works of art selected by four art-collecting couples, each with different sensibilities: Myriam and Amaury de Solages, Charlotte and André Querton, Cookie and Cédric Liénart de Jeude, Béatrice and Philippe le Hodey and Jean-Claude Simoën.
