Claudie Saxe | Aix en Provence | “Incarnation”, paint on old wood
Opening: 23 June 2018, from 14u00 – 18u00

23-06 > 11-11

Claudie Saxe’s painting recalls a violent and mysterious self awareness and introspection. It brings the idea of the contrast between the light of a stained-glass window and the sufferance one feels while staring at it. Distinctly non-figurative, Claudie Saxe’s painting is related to the lyrical abstraction movement and at the same time to action painting by the way her gestures structure the pictural “beings.” Her work takes a poetic approach to further understand the complex relationship between the material and the body.

Group exhibition
“The Art of Life”

June 23, 2018 / 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Galerij8 is a gallery and meditation center that promotes “Soul Art” (visionary, intuitive and outsider art). Also known in France as “Art Singulier”. The art of understanding Soul Art lies in “the Art of Life”. In several countries, the number of art fairs devoted to this new art form can no longer be counted. And apparently even the Christie’s auction house has gone deeper into this market. Recently, Laura Hollick from Canada has held a Soul Art event in which 12,000 creative people have participated.

The Future is Female: photography, Katrien Orlans. (vernissage 31/03/18)

Women had a subordinate role in society over the centuries.
In Art too, she was long depicted as a character in the sign of service and submission. Being prepared for marriage and childbirth. The woman was pushed into a role, the man often determined which role. For “The Future is Female”, Fotografe Katrien Orlans, strong women for her lens. All of them women who know what they want. Both the photographer and the model.

To what extent does the woman want to give herself to the photographer?
Does the woman play a role?
And if she already plays a role, how does she want to be seen and why?

The exhibition runs t.e.m. June 1, 2018

Joris Gaymans, ‘Met Geheven Hand’, Bronze, 47x34x6 (cm)

Joris Gaymans is a Dutch sculptor, artist and philosopher. Joris creates a near-death experience from the pure essence of being. This process means that his sculptures reflect silence and serenity. The smooth finish of his sculptures, his use of patinas and his personal style in general serve to emphasise the beauty and purity of the essence that is present in silence.

He tries to hold back his own thoughts, feelings and wishes as much as possible, so that he does not interpret the intuition but, instead it fills him.

Joris: “Art and living in the present are inseparably connected. Art can only arise in this living, present moment.”

Resonancia | Kristel Van den Eynden

The art works Resonancia arose from an inner experience. They resonate with what may be elevated. Each piece of art comprises an opening, a doorway, a liberation…. to detach from our societal conceptual framework. Solutions come about in another dimension, regardless of the form as we perceive it.

It’s about the joy of the inner child, the magic, the playfulness, and the wonder… What can be felt is more actively present than what is visible. The all-over compositions create space. The spectrum of colours reflect sensitivity, the loose brushstrokes create freedom, joy, connection. These paintings, oil on canvas, are the result of previous deep meditative work, accompanied by the music of intuitive pianist Steven Vrancken.

Kristel Van den Eynden studied drawing and painting at the Art Academy of Knokke-Heist, under the teachers Jan de Vliegher, Robin Vermeersch, Inge d’Hulster and Wendy Vandermaes.

Footprints of Africa | Silent Photography
by Marc Agten
Namibië, 2016

Opening : saturday 1, October, 14.00 – 18.00
Exhibition : October 1, 2016 – June 3, 2017

Marc Agten, a lawyer who lives in Knokke, makes us look at everything in a different light with his series of artistic still life photos of landscapes. He plays with silence and movement, zooms in and keeps a distance, observes natural phenomena and reflects the constantly changing light.

Details fade into the space and create a sense of infinity.
The all-over compositions depict a tangible ambience.

The aesthetically desolate landscape and its elements of sand, air and water appear to be static, yet they are constantly brought into subtle and slow motion by the wind.
