Museum: Teil 2 (Wolken) & Gedankenkarten

30.05 - 13.06.2014

Vernissage: Friday 30th of May 7-9 p.m

Museum Teil 2 (Wolken)
By producing clouds as objects and thus capturing their usually fluid form, I have the opportunity to observe their differences and to put them into an order. From my observations, I concluded that over the centuries clouds changed their forms. Around 2000 BC for example, they were very round and compact, whereas contemporary clouds have much more varied forms. Of course the Cloud Museum is an impossible proposition.

Gedankenkarten / Maps of Thoughts
Maps of Thoughts are drawings that depict a world of thought and abstract thought processes. They put different drawings/signs/words into an order. The maps are also archives that register the elusive, ephemeral and unseizable and render this intangible cosmos consistent, assessable and above all visible.
By drawing Maps of Thoughts I transfer data into a different form. Not only does this create an overview but also a new context for the initially neutral collection of information. The previously collected pieces of data or information only obtain their meaning in their composition and in their cataloguing. Since the Maps of Thoughts function rhizomatically, different opinions and approaches coexist. The maps are always a dialogue between interior and exterior, past experiences and visions of the future, the real and the imaginary.

Samuel Trenquier


16.05 – 29.05.2014

Vernissage Friday 16th of May, 7 – 9 pm

Samuel Trenqier °1983 is a French artist who graduated at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Marseille and now works and lives in Brussels.
His large scale drawings has this particularity that they open up spaces and narrate stories that due to pure physical laws could never exist in reality.
He always attacks the blank sheet of paper with an adventurous approach; like a virgin territory that needs to be discovered and explored after marking it with checkpoints. These formal references are there to point out the symbolic road that is already discovered and the one that is still unexplored.
A universe that unfolds itself little by little, in absurd unstable ways.
In his drawings he tries to offer a space, in a dynamic mise-en-scene, that opens towards a lively and animated interior. A “walking space” that maybe doesn’t mobilise the human body but for sure stimulates our visual perception and mobility. This visual safari operates with an enormous variety and generosity that touches as well physical as suggested elements, a real world and an imagined.
