Axel Vervoordt is pleased to present the group exhibition, Liturgie colorée, in the Henro and Ma-ka spaces at Kanaal. The exhibition features work by Saburo Murakami, Anish Kapoor, Jef Verheyen, Kazuo Shiraga, Gotthard Graubner, Bosco Sodi, Chung Chang-Sup, Raimund Girke, Michel Mouffe, Masaomi Raku, and Renato Nicolodi.
The exhibition’s title is derived from a 1975 diptych by Verheyen that serves as a philosophical and curatorial theme. Liturgie colorée is about the contrast of colours depicted in the two paintings, and more broadly, is about the contrast of meaning between blue and red — night and day — water and fire — heaven and earth — cold and warm — tranquility and aggression — decrease and increase (of light). Artistic explorations of contrasts and colour’s inherent power are omnipresent in this exhibition. Particularly in individual works as well as the dialogue of works within the installation, viewers can experience the force and subtlety of colour in terms of technique, form, and language.
