Situation #2 Julien Creuzet

Perruche #2 presents the first solo exhibition by artist Julien Creuzet in Brussels. His multimedia installations use found objects, video, engraving and poetry toquestion the role of language for the individual and collective memory. Inspired by the philosophical reflections of Édouard Glissant, Julien Creuzet’s work focuses on the complex intersection of the history of Martinique and the events of European modernity.

LGC member Wendy Morris is participating in a new exhibition ‘Vastbesloten en Verlangend’ at De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam.
