Zeno X Gallery is pleased to present Coloured Cones, the seventh solo exhibition of Michaël Borremans.
The title of the exhibition refers to the new series of paintings in which satin cones play the leading role. These are sometimes placed alone and sometimes side by side in different constellations. Both the manner of presentation and the choice of satin point to the tradition of Western portrait painting. By projecting the codes of the genre onto the soulless cone figures, a tension arises not only between subject and object, but also between reality and abstraction.
