In 2017, Dirk Braeckman represented Belgium at the 57th Venice Biennale. His exhibition in the Belgian Pavilion attracted great interest. That exhibition also formed the starting point for a Dirk Braeckman double show at M and BOZAR Brussels.
The new exhibitions will complement one another and highlight individual aspects of the artist’s multifaceted practice. M will concentrate on Braeckman’s experimental side. Spread over two of the museum’s galleries, the artist will offer visitors a unique view of his darkroom and also show examples of his smaller-scale work on paper. His experiments with new media will also feature, including a large projection tailored to M.
At BOZAR, Braeckman will show 20 works of a scale in keeping with the architecture of Victor Horta. The focus in this case will be on his monumental prints – chiefly work from Venice, consisting of new work and a selection of earlier images.
