KOEN VANMECHELEN

From June 12th to august 31st

Koen Vanmechelen (1965) is an internationally renowned Belgian conceptual artist. Bio-cultural diversity is central to his exploratory approach. Vanmechelen has worked with scientists from various disciplines over the past ten years.

Koen Vanmechelen is best known for his 'Cosmopolitan Chicken Project' (C.C.P.), a unique art project that he started in the 1990s. The hen, or more precisely the crossing of breeds from different countries to obtain 'cosmopolitan hens', is at the heart of this worldwide project. The 27th generation of hens was born in 2022. The project has put Vanmechelen on the international art scene. However, the heart of the project is not the hen or the egg, but the crossing of species and its corollary, diversity. This same diversity is found in the other animal species, farms, projects and foundations that the artist's work encompasses. Like a modern-day Uomo Universale, Vanmechelen merges art, nature and science, drawing on everything that can help him push back the boundaries of his research.


He uses the results of his experiments in all kinds of artistic media –expressive paintings and drawings, photos, performances, sculptures, videos, new 3D techniques, glassware, (living) installations – but also puts them into practice in communities and in science. Installed in the centre of society, between people, these works point the way to a new trend of thought: a renaissance in cosmopolitanism.

DELPHINE DE SAXE

"What Is To Come Is Better Than What Was"
Cocktail on Sunday 25th of September from 11 am to 2 pm. Exhibition from September 26th to
October 30th

Delphine de Saxe - Coburg (1968) is an Anglo-Belgian artist. Delphine grew up in London and worked there as an artist until 2003, when she moved to Brussels to set up a new studio. In addition to her gallery and museum exhibitions, she has successfully worked on art-related projects with several international companies, including Coca-Cola, Bic, ABSOLUT and the Red Cross. Delphine has made a name for herself in the European art world as a nonconformist artist and colorist. She is known for creating multi-media works brimming with color, texture and humor that address universal themes. Whether painting, video, neon sculpture or metal design pieces, her works are vibrant, playful and eccentric. They are capable of lovingly inspiring the dispossessed, while bringing the powerful and proud back to reality. Questions of identity, power and justice often inspire Delphine's work.


Part of her artistic motivation is to offer the viewer a chance to see the bright side of life. Delphine's explicit use of words and language makes her messages very direct, while her use of color and composition leaves room for fantasy and irony. After having exhibited regularly in the galleries of Linda and Guy Pieters in Belgium, this is the first time she exhibits her work at the Foundation in Saint Tropez.
