S.M.A.K. Opens Exhibitions by Raphael Buedts, Nick Ervinck and a Selection from its Collection
ManFreDu Schu, Wo ich was soll, 1992. Collectie S.M.A.K.

GHENT.- Starting on 5th September 2009 the S.M.A.K. will be holding three exhibitions, RaphaŽl Buedts, Nick Ervinck and a selection from the museum's collection.

On display will be an overview of RaphaŽl Buedts' work, especially his sculptural work, as well as his drawings and paintings. They are something you have to get used to, these ‘furniture objects’ by RaphaŽl Buedts, which he compiled at the end of the seventies and in the eighties. They have been made from unusual materials, like discarded furniture, twigs, sheets of material, sticks and strips of wood. Apart from this he used rope, lead, canvas, silk, bricks and in some cases even shells. His handwork is aimed at using the material to create something spiritually and sensually tangible. Sometimes you have the feeling that he is trying to break through their close, uncommunicative aspect, and sometimes it seems as if his aim is to keep them in a form that is as introvert as possible.

Nick Ervinck (į1981, Kortemark) is exploring the borders of different media. He tries to find out what the interactions are of virtual constructions and self-made sculptures. He therefore uses prints, video and digital drawings that are leading to the making of sculptures in coloured plaster, polyester or wood. In his digital prints and animations he creates a surrealistic space and plays with volumes, proportions and colours. For the space of Kunst Nu in S.M.A.K. he will start from a drawing of the 19th Century, that he transforms to a wall drawing. This new manipulated 2D-drawing will be interpreted in 3D as a sculpture with the title GNI-RI sep2009 EITOZOR between the walls of the exhibition space. Also interesting to know: on the roof of the Zebrastraat comes a new sculpture: WARSUBEC.

The exhibition of works from the collection includes works by Carl Andre, Richard Artschwager, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Jan Carlier, Daniel Dezeuze, Barry Flanagan, Johan Gelper, Kurt Kocherscheidt, Bernd Lohaus, Thom Merrick, Bruce Nauman, Cady Noland, Navid Nuur, Oswald Oberhuber, Avery T.C. Preesman, Royden Rabinowitch, Joe Scanlan, ManfreDu Schu, Dan Van Severen, Gert Verhoeven, Cathy Wilkes
