LES SAISONS DU TRINKHALL

We have decided to extend the “Faces/Borders” exhibition until next February, so that anyone who has been unable to visit due to sanitary restrictions has the opportunity to see it. Furthermore, we will be holding four new exhibitions from 24 September: Pascal Tassini and Pierre De Peet at the Trinkhall; Yvon Vandycke at the Boverie; five Walloon region Créahm artists at “la Biennale Hors Normes” in Lyon.

THE IDEAL MUSEUM

The Ideal Museum is a piece created throughout 2019 by one of the leading artists of the Créahm workshops, Alain Meert, in preparation for the opening of the Trinkhall. The artist answered our question - What is a museum? - with a galleon in full sail, which casually displays drawings, paintings and sculptures. It is a scene of paper, cardboard, objects, multiple unusual and familiar presences, lodged precisely between states of consciousness. The whole world that fits into a boat: Alain Meert's ark. And it is a museum, just as we want it to be, dreamily navigating among ideas, shapes and emotions. Ship Lieutenant Alain Meert is a pirate. So, let’s all climb aboard with a heave ho!

VENT DEBOUT...

VENT DEBOUT...

Life is gradually getting back to normal despite – or alongside – the wounds caused by the public health crisis and the shock of the devastating floods in July. What else can we do other than move forward and try to better understand and live in a world that is transforming right before our eyes? More than ever, the Trinkhall project – celebrating the expressive power of fragile worlds – seems relevant to us, even though we have no solutions to the issues currently facing us. We are not in pursuit of the Truth: in line with our “arts situés” policy, we just want to keep up with the etymological ambiguity that we assign to the word mediation: that is, being in the middle and being careful. On our premises, in the heart of the Trinkhall workshop, we experience words, images, emotions, existence. We are on a knife’s edge, moving ahead step by step in the blissful anxiety – sometimes with complexity and sometimes with clarity – of allowing people to see, feel and understand.

We have decided to extend the “Faces/Borders” exhibition until next February, so that anyone who has been unable to visit due to sanitary restrictions has the opportunity to see it. Furthermore, we will be holding four new exhibitions from early September: Pascal Tassini and Pierre De Peet at the Trinkhall; Yvon Vandycke at La Boverie; five Walloon region Créahm artists at “La biennale hors normes” in Lyon.

 

Yours sincerely,
