The work of the Brussels artist Richard Venlet is hybrid, combining sculpture, installation, research into art history, exhibition design and architecture. He transforms existing spaces into 'open frameworks' or presentation contexts within which the culture of the exhibit is explored. For his exhibition at BOZAR he has assembled a diverse range of artefacts, props, works of art and archive material accumulated over the past 25 years. The exhibition provides an insight into Venlet's work and at the same time forms a new and autonomous project.
