Overview of all Michaël Borremans’ work in series since 2013
Ambiguity and contradiction are the twin hallmarks of the paintings, drawings and films of Michaël Borremans (b. 1963). He deploys his technical virtuosity to create apparently familiar scenes, which on closer inspection have an unsettling effect. He combines black humour, violence, absurdism and beauty to produce images that are strange and alienating, in which the subject seems to be situated in an undefined time and space.
This catalogue provides an overview of all Michaël Borremans’ work in series since 2013. It concerns seven different series of paintings, including ‘Black Mould’, ‘Fire From the Sun’ and ‘Girl with Hands’. The majority of the works have never before been published. Working in series is a recent development in Borremans’ oeuvre.
Michaël Borremans has staged solo exhibitions in a variety of venues, including Galerie Rudolfinum in Prague, CAC Malaga, Dallas Museum of Art, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, BOZAR in Brussels, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, The Cleveland Museum of Art, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, De Appel Arts Centre in Amsterdam and Parasol Unit in London.
