Modèles réels, arrangements accidentels


Griet Moors

Curator: Marie-Claire Krell

21814 Rue de la Sirène

Griet Moors approaches art as an architect, constructing paintings and prints into situational settings that play with our outlook on the world. Her interest stems from the fact that our gaze cannot be limited to just one object, it is guided through the world by our motion and is given direction from who we are. For Moors, our gaze, not the canvas or pedestal, is the bearer of the image, as it taps into numerous conscious and unconscious impressions and experiences.

In her artistic research, she analyses this pictorial mobility, trying to get hold of that ever changing point of view, that is already inherent to the physical approach of a body moving towards an artwork. Therefore her acrylic paintings, digital scans and prints on paper do not stand alone, on the contrary, they open the view on the space surrounding them, the street, corners and architecture.

Her temporary arrangements of abstract images and spatial elements give insight into an interdimensional network of colors, lines, forms, directions, light and space. As we pass by and through time, our gaze spreads into not just simultaneous but time-delayed perceptions of the world around us. Memories superimpose our dynamic perception of spaces, places and things, as their visual impressions become memories themselves. Moors is interested in translating these multidimensional experiences, looking for the spatial convergence of flat images throughout time, trying to get a grip of its perspective just at its tipping point.
