De Burg, de Tank + Brugotta, Bruges
Upcoming show “Hedendaagse Primitieven” in Bruges. An exhibition of photographs by Alex Vanhee who took 40 portraits of 40 artists living or working in Bruges, and Benedikte Van Eeghem who interviewed us for our stories. The contemporary artists are a range of writers, actors, painters, singers, dancers and musicians. The “Contemporary Primitives” is all about a wink to the Flemish Primitives from the 15th and 16th century, very known in Bruges, who worked with the same craftsmanship and “métier” as we work today. I’m honoured to be part of it with my picture, my story and one of my paintings “memories of strawberries and a kiss from the unicorn” from 2020.
