Studio Exhibition | What time is it? By Chantal Maquet


Mudam Studio
In the framework of the exhibition

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Fly In League With The Night

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s portraits appear timeless. Artist Chantal Maquet invites you to look for clues in archive photographs that refer to a a very specific period or moment in time. Is it possible for us to copy a photo and do without certain details that make it belong to a certain time? What is left? And what could we add to locate our image in a completely different period?

Does painting allow us to make time disappear? And what role does colour play in this? These were the questions at the heart of a workshop led by artist Chantal Maquet. Come and see the results in the Mudam Studio during the first week of August.
