The art practice of Frank JMA Castelyns is highly regarded, mainly in inner circles. His exhibition Topography of the invisible refers to the series of the same name that he has been developing since 2006. Photos, whether or not edited, are folded several times and that grid is somewhat reminiscent of folding in a map. The artist points out that a crease is caused by compressive stresses: it is a metaphor for the pressure, stress and tensions in the social field. He shows new topographies of the invisible, new work and existing work, including a floor sculpture of dice-like marble blocks with the words AMOR FATI and AMOR MUNDI. He found 'Amor Fati' in Nietzsche and 'Amor Mundi' in Hannah Arendt.
First a refined aesthetic and a lightness that sometimes makes you smile, and then a philosophical depth.
