TICK TACK cordially invites you to GLOSS, a group exhibition with six women artists born in different decades:
Marilyn Minter (1948, US)
Liliane Vertessen (1952, BE)
Jocelyn Hobbie (1969, US)
Gina Beavers (1974, US)
Sarah Slappey (1984, US)
Rachel Hobkirk (1995, GB)
GLOSS celebrates femininity by exhibiting an international and intergenerational group of contemporary women artists, showing their relationship with the diversity of feminine bodies and the human figure as well as outlining their liberated stance on aesthetic, social and erotic standards.
Sensuality and eroticism intertwine with surrealism and enigmatic imagery in an idiosyncratic selection of recent paintings, sculptures and videos carefully brought together.
GLOSS offers a glimpse underneath the seductive surfaces and lays bare an energetic realm of discomfort and illusion where stereotypical aspects of glamour, sexuality and perfection come undone.
As part of the printed publication, Iris Paschalidis, Head of the Collection of S.M.A.K., will write the exhibition text for GLOSS.
In addition to a basement screening of My Cuntry Tis of Thee (2018), Marilyn Minter will premier her newest video Thirsty (2022) on CINEMA TICK TACK. GLOSS marks the first presentation of Minter’s video works in Belgium.
Artists: Marilyn Minter, Jocelyn Hobbie, Rachel Hobkirk, Sarah Slappey, Gina Beavers, Liliane Vertessen
