Ultramarine

After Tate Liverpool, this ambitious retrospective exhibition of the French artist Yves Klein travels to the Brussels Centre for Fine Arts. Klein became known for his ultramarine monochromes. These are particularly successful at expressing his ideas about spiritual infinity and mystic rituals. With his visual art and spectacular performances, Klein was the precursor to the happening and to body art. In this exhibition – in which performances are regularly staged during Performatik17 – you become acquainted with his oeuvre through unseen masterpieces and rarely exhibited visual works.

Miet Warlop presents a succession of theatrical vignettes, consisting of physical actions, sculptural props and scenic interventions that artfully cancel each other out on stage. Each scene reveals the immaterial processes that go into the work – using a plastic language. It turns them into a sculptural live event creating a temporary fantasy that begins to crumble in the moment of its completion.

Pieter Van den Bosch is literally empowering the opening of the Yves Klein exhibition with a performance tailor-made to Bozar. Just before you enter the exhibition, you witness an event: with paint and explosives, Klein’s heritage becomes a modus operandi for today.
