Oliver Leu

Leopold’s Legacy

Tique | art space is proud to present a solo exhibition with recent works by Oliver Leu.

In his artistic practice, he is concerned with the construction of history, the abuse of power and the consequences of colonial pasts. Since 2015 he has developed these ideas in his project Leopold’s Legacy in which he is researching and photographing the forms of representation of the colonial history of Congo in Belgium. A book with the same title that summons up the outcome of his research was published by The Eriskay Connection (NL) in May 2020 and received a 'Special Mention' at the Rencontres d’Arles Photo-Text Book Award 2020. In his presentation at Tique | art space Oliver will focus on collages and graphic work, which he developed during his artist residencies at Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee.

The exhibition is supported by dasKULTURforum Antwerpen.
