Marco De Sanctis - 'À Rebours'

31/08/2017 - 28/10/2017

A Rebours is the second solo exhibition of Italian conceptual artist Marco De Sanctis (1983, lives and works in Brussels) at Dauwens & Beernaert Gallery. A Rebours (“Going Backwards”) lends its name from the eponymous novel by the French writer Joris-Karl Huysmans. By using this title, Marco De Sanctis literally and figuratively introduces a temporal dynamic in his solo exhibition. Temporal shifts, reinterpretations of and interventions on existing works challenge the legitimacy and art historical legacy of contemporary artistic practices. Marco De Sanctis works challenge the duality between the copy and the original, investigate the transmission (methods) of images and the position of a contemporary artist vis-à-vis this art historical heritage
