Exhibition. Sophie Whettnall - Etel Adnan
From 4 April to 4 August 2019 at the Centrale for contemporary art.
Sophie Whettnall works with video, photo, installations and performance. As is customary for exhibitions by Brussels artists held at the Centrale, Whettnall was asked to choose an international artist to exhibit alongside her. She selected the canvasses, drawings, watercolours and engravings of Etel Adnan.
The exhibition's subtitle, La banquise, la forêt et les étoiles (The ice field, the forest and the stars), reflects the universe of the Belgian artist as well as that of Adnan. A formal dialogue is established between both artists, a shared, intimate and personal vision of the landscape, the light and its transparency.
