We are proud to present the solo exhibition of Elias Cafmeyer in our new space ‘Next Door’. Right next to our current location we opened a new intimate gallery space in September. The eclectic program of Next Door aims to address a public as broad as possible and well established artists will be seen next to young talents. Elias Cafmeyer graduated from St. Lucas School of Arts in Antwerp in 2017. As a visual artist he focusses on the city, its (failed) architecture and public space.
Elias Cafmeyer (Roeselare, 1990 lives and works in Antwerp. He mainly makes sculptures, video installations and site specific work. His work evolves around public space and its use within the city. Cafmeyer has a fascination for urban development, traffic signs and the city landscape as a metaphor for social construction. Apart from his video installations, Elias often uses raw, industrial materials such as metal, untreated wood, concrete… His proposals for site specific work are presented as scale models and could be seen as works on itself.
The exhibition opens on Thursday 9 November, from 6 – 9pm, in presence of the artist.
