POLLY EXPRESS, 2023
Whether you have been working late hours, or you are simply craving a late night snack, the night shop presents itself a safe haven for every city-dweller. With its bright lights and ubiquitous brands, it offers constant access to the goods we need or crave. But what does it mean to be able to consume at will?
Polly takes you to an upgraded night shop in Brussels, and invites you to take a closer look at the products we so often buy without giving them a second thought. By reclaiming an old night shop and filling it with her art, she challenges our notions of consumerism and the hold that marketing has on our attention spans.
So come on in, and see if you can withstand the temptation.
Opening January 12, at Indiandribble, Brussels
GROUP SHOW, 'ÉKSTASIS' AT SHAME GALLERY
The group show explores the potential of ecstasy; in a duel with all that is obvious and mundane, its artists mix the frightful and the stunning, the unique and the obscene into arousing works that will absorb your senses and bring you in a state of bliss.
*As the ancient Greek knew, ecstasy is a subjective experience of total involvement. In classical Greek literature it refers to removal of the mind or body “from its normal place of function.” Now, don't we all need a little bit more of that.
