Annie Gentils Gallery presents Traveling Light by Marie Cloquet, the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. “The ambivalence of the ruin, the ruin that testifies of both great culture and its inevitable decline. The wonder evoked by each and every ruin is always accompanied by a feeling of deep melancholy. Every dilapidated monument, temple or church reminds us of the futility of human endeavour, the finitude of every culture. They testify to the potency of great cultures, yet simultaneously contain a warning to every self-aggrandizing culture that seeks enduring fame. As such, our own (inescapable) future is already foreshadowed in the ruin.” - Ory Dessau for Annie Gentils Gallery The opening will be on 8 September 2019, from 15.00 - 19.00, on view through 20 October 2019.
