Animals

Until the 17th February 2018, the Riva Project presents a group show that brings together works from the Brussels-based Charles Riva Collection and numerous international private collections.

Featuring works by Paul McCarthy, Ardmore Ceramics, Oliver Clegg, Raphaël De Villers, Roe Ethridge, Roni Horn, Jim Lambie, Robert Longo, Jonathan Meese and Richard Jackson, “Animals” explores the representation of Animals in the field of contemporary sculpture. Using a range of techniques and mediums, “Animals” brings the animal word to the art world, creating a dialogue surrounding the animal figure and the representation of it.

Reality or fantasy, the work in “Animals” contemplates the line drawn between these two realms and the social connection with the Animal, within both the context of the history of art and personal interpretation.

Here, we present works and installation views from “Animals” at the Riva Project – the new exhibition space in Brussels from the Charles Riva Collection.
