BRUSSELS.- rodolphe janssen is presenting two new exhibitions of Thomas Lerooy and Betty Tompkins, opening during Brussels Gallery Weekend.

Thomas Lerooy
If you feel more than butterflies in your stomach
09.09 > 16.10.2021
Livourne 35

For his exhibition, If you feel more than butterflies in your stomach, Thomas Lerooy presents a new series of paintings.

This is Lerooy’s first exhibition at the gallery since 2014.

Lerooy is primarily known for his sculptures and drawings, however the last few years he has also been exploring the medium of painting. Although Lerooy clearly separates his sculptures, drawings and paintings from one another, there are some overlaps between the different media present. His enigmatic paintings challenge the audience’s sense of logic and leaves a lot to the spectator’s imagination and interpretation.

Thomas Lerooy (Born 1981 in Roeselare, Belgium; Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium)

He has recently had several institutional solo exhibitions including Behind the Curtain at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, Brussels, Belgium (2019); Vanity Fair at Gaasbeek Castle, Gaasbeek, Belgium (2018); Playground at Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, Belgium (2017); and Beauty in the shadow of the stars at the Petit Palais, Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris, Paris, France (2015).

His work is included public institutions such as the Musée National d’Art Moderne - Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; Provincie West-Vlaanderen, Belgium; Belfius Art Collection, Brussels, Belgium, City of Brussels, Belgium, city of Puurs and City of Knokke, Belgium.

A catalog will be published on the occasion of this exhibition, with a text by Kersten Geers. It will be offered free of charge to visitors.

Betty Tompkins
Women Words
09.09 > 16.10.2021
Livourne 32

Betty Tompkins is regarded as one of the pioneers of feminist art in the 1960’s. She is primarily known for her photorealistic Fuck Paintings in which she equalizes both sexes by showing a close up of the genitalia. In her more recent work she integrates stereotypical images of women in the form of words, these can be affectionate, offensive or denigrating. Tompkins gets inspiration for these written descriptions out of existing quotes from popular culture, political debates and an email request in which she asked to describe women in a word or a sentence. The works in her upcoming show borrow such words from testimonies and polemics surrounding the #MeToo movement, with which Tompkins has been strongly implicated through her work.

Betty Tompkins (Born in 1945 in Washington D.C. USA, Lives and works in New York, NY USA)

Her works have been shown at Kunstraum Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria; The FLAG Art Foundation, New York, NY USA; The HallArt Foundation | Schloss Derneburg Museum, Derneburg, Germany; Fortnight Institute, New York, NY USA; Künstlerhaus Bremen, Bremen, Germany; Dallas Contemporary, Dallas, TX USA; Houston Museum of Modern Art, Houston, TX USA; Stamford Museum & Nature Center, Stamford, CT USA; PS1, New York, NY USA; Juniata Museum of Art, Huntingdon, PA USA and The Biennale de Lyon 2003 Lyon, France. She is currently presenting a solo exhibition at MO.CO. Montpellier, which opened on June 26th.

Her works are included in important collections such as The Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY USA; Allen Art Museum, Oberlin, OH USA; Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, France; Islip Art Museum, East Islip, NY USA; Museum Of The City Of New York, NY USA; Stamford Museum, Stamford, CT USA and Zimmereli Art Museum, New Brunswick, NJ USA.
