Not Really Really

Removed from the material world and undergoing various transformations.

Curated together with Agata Jastrząbek, the exhibition presents a diverse selection of works created from functional objects and materials that have been stripped of their utility to propose alternate realities.

Shown during Art Brussels 2016 in a former mental health facility, the Frédéric de Goldschmidt Collection’s “Not Really Really” presented works and objects that were removed from the material world and undergoing various transformations to tackle a variety of subjects, including car water containers blown in Murano glass, fans mounted on Belgian beer bottles, dishes cast in concrete, flattened silverware suspended in the air, and salt blocks shaped by donkey tongues.

In addition to the seventy-one works in the collection, four artists, Joël Andrianomearisoa, Loup Sarion, Benoit Platéus and Jean-François Boclé, have been commissioned to create site-specific installations responding to the space and elaborating further on the exhibition concept.

Here, we share views inside “Not Really Really”.
