Brussels, Belgium – This survey constitutes the first large exhibition of Rosemarie Trockel (1952, Schwerte) in Belgium. Although the work of Rosemarie Trockel is clearly referencing the symbolic and aesthetic legacies of surrealism and dada , her work has until now hardly been shown in Belgium. This exhibition will provide comprehensive insight into her oeuvre and will features works and groups of works produced from the early 1980’s onwards and works created specifically for the exhibition. On exhibition at Weils from 18th February through 27th of May. The motif of the exhibition is an expressive group of 40 recent collages, and ceramics in which Rosemarie Trockel assembles in an impulsive and direct way her own work, iconography, sensibilities and themes. Rosemarie Trockel has been producing her stylistically heterogeneous works in a wide range of media since the 1970’s.
