Petit Maître liégeois meets Bassie Lebon: Jacques Lizène / Lieven Segers
30.10.2015 – 28.11.2015
opening 29.10.2015 (18:00 – 21:00) with performance by Jacques Lizène
During one month, Sint-Lukasgalerie becomes the meeting place of the work of two Belgian artists, Jacques Lizène (b. 1946) and Lieven Segers (b. 1975). Although very different with regard to generation and context—Lizène made his debut in the 1970s and works from Liège, while Segers has been operating from Antwerp for about ten years—both employ strikingly similar artistic strategies. Tongue in cheek selfportraits; subversive combinations of text and image (often the photographic image); and a critical but simultaneously humoristic relationship with the surrounding reality are recurrent features of their practices. In both cases this results in highly relevant and topical works that in the exhibition dialogue with each other
