House, car, dog, tulip
12 October – 16 November 2019
The theme of leisure plays a major role in Elvire Bonduelle’s work, in which
architecture is one of her most common motives. In her exhibition ‘House, car, dog, tulip’, a number of tables on lasciviously shaped legs provide homely cosiness, id est an avant-garde lamp, alternative vases, and a lonely flower. It looks like an ultramodern interior that wants to be far ahead of its time and in which life is celebrated. Wave movements can be observed on a wall with a long series of paintings called “Les flots bleus”, as if the sea were rolling in. You would almost think: it is time for holidays. Sitting at home and dreaming of holidays so much wanted at least once a year. On this Elvire says that ‘people have to take holidays in order to become more productive’.
A table in the middle of the room invites visitors to play a card game made by Elvire. These memory cards depict houses, cars, dogs and flowers. The visitor sits on a painted cushion, signed by the artist.
D u r i n g t h e o p e n i n g on Saturday 12 October the one with the highest points of the evening can win a handmade cushion.
