14.03 - 25.05.2014 M HKA

02.02.2013 - 31.12.2016 ROCKOX HOUSE

In the exhibition The Pink Spy Narcisse Tordoir tells stories in an intuitive and associative manner about existential man in an unsettled world, assigning the main role to the figure of ‘the Oriental’. The Pink Spy consists of five different elements: new work by Tordoir himself, two series of etchings by Giambattista Tiepolo, works from the M HKA collection, works on loan from the Barjeel Art Foundation in Sharjah, and work by unknown young artists.

At the Rockox House you get a better idea of what an Antwerp art collection would have looked like in the city’s Golden Age. The home of Mayor Nicolaas Rockox (1560-1640), a prominent art patron, is turned into a luxurious art room with masterpieces on loan from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts and some of the most important works from the museum’s own collection. Enjoy stunning paintings by masters such as Rogier Van der Weyden, Hans Memling, Jan Van Eyck, Peter Paul Rubens and Sir Anthony van Dyck.

An My Lê May - July MAS An My Lê left her native Vietnam as a 15-year-old political refugee. From 1994 she began returning there regularly, and was affected by the landscape, which she started photographing in large-format black and white images. She did so not so much as a reflection on the war, but rather out of a desire to reconcile her youthful memories of this immensely damaged landscape with the reality of nature today. It is her way of capturing in images an escape from a conflict zone. Three series of these panoramic landscapes have been brought together under the title ‘Small Wars’ to form an impressive pictorial narrative that is being shown in Europe for the first time.
