“Les Ignorants” Season XV-Lionel Jadot & Serge Leblon

Brussels Gallery Weekend (3-6 September 2020)
Season XV-Lionel Jadot & Serge Leblon, les ignorants
Opening on Thursday 3 September, 18-22.00 at Spazio Nobile Gallery.

Two different practices, photography and design, and yet the same common thread: this obsession with the organic and instinctive relationship with raw material.

The subject has imposed itself on themselves: the modification of the body by the addition of machines, of various objects at the same time constraining, at the same time increasing the humane energy. Low-tech objects or scrap that will give birth to ephemeral human architectures. It is their DIY version of a certain transhumanism. A poetically imperfect version, where the philosophy of the arte povera woven into the objects and machines of Lionel Jadot, between recycling and overcycling, will be grafted on individuals from everyday life.
