The New Machine Age promises to surpass the limits of human knowledge, ability and desire. Drawing by hand seems obsolete. At the same time, it remains an essential tool for artists and scientists. In the context of Amelie Bouvier’s exhibition “The Sun Conspiracy” the artist will discuss the significance of drawing in artistic and scientific practice with brain scientist and well-known manga artist Minye Zhan (Jane Mere).
Moderated by Beatrice de Gelder.

On Art Brussels Gallery Night, we’re thrilled to open a solo exhibition from Petr Davydtchenko who presents his video installation “Voznesenie (Ascension),” first shown at the Moscow Biennale (for young art). It is a six channel work with images displayed horizontally, vertically and diagonally, giving an omnipresent aura to the man surfacing from the thick residual mud of the underground. In addition to this installation, Davydtchenko will also present a series of new paintings that shed more subtle light on the depicted ascension.
