Lin Zhipeng aka 223

New Works  by 223 , opening sunday september 3th from 2 to 6 pm in presence of the artist – presentation of new artist booklet

Lin Zhipeng is among the leading artists of the so called generation of the eighties , an artist which work was first known through social media and online platforms and self-published zines. His diary like booklets and photographs  represent a totally new group of the Chinese society that seek new boundaries within their lives . We see figures and nature mortes in flashy colours, flowers and interiors , nudes in soft colours, a new generation amidst new pleasures , far away from the middle class world . The images are in an atmosphere of love, playfulness , erotism and joy. Lin Zhipeng is named after a police character of the Wong Kar-Wai’s movie Chungking Express. His work is closely associated with the works of Guy Bourdin and Wolfgang Tillmans. This booklet is made for the third exhibition of Lin Zhipeng at Stieglitz19 Antwerp. The artist will be present at the opening.

Juanan Requana

New Works  by Juanan Requena , opening during brussels gallery weekend , opening reception saturday september 9th from 2 tot 6 pm

in presence of the artist

Juanan Requena is an alchemist, a lover of light and of words but also of stones, wood, ropes and paper. He is drawn to ripping and pasting, building and renewing, doing and undoing, weaving paths without end in an eternal quest for the poetry of the commonplace. After producing numerous diaries and countless sketches, thousands of combinations of words and images, he now presents his first book entitled On the Edge of All Maps.

Juanan was born in an arid village in La Mancha, where he was captivated by the horizons as he built huts among the maize fields. Following beautiful failures and continuous drifts, he moved to the South Sea, where he learnt hendecasyllables and quejíos selling books and serving coffees. He became a traveller while wiring the tours of rock ‘n’ roll bands and filling up endless diaries. In this way, he roamed nomadically, covered in salt residue and shrouded in doubts, until he persuaded himself that poetry and the gaze could converge in the same incandescence. Today, he still strives incessantly to reflect this struggle.
