Poétique du silence


Hadrien Loumaye

Artist selected as part of the open call

26240 Rue Hors-Château

The title of this artwork is inspired by Stefan Hertmans’ book Poétique du silence, which deals with the different uses of silence in poetry. In this intervention, I wanted to test out the pictorial gesture, but in a form that integrates directly into architecture. That’s why I chose to present a mural that goes beyond the traditional painting format. This decision is also motivated by the fact the exhibition space is a window, a place that is conducive to the promotion of goods, which is here inhabited by a painting that will only exist for the duration of an exhibition.
