This event has ended.

The first solo show of the Belgian multi-disciplinary artist Hans Op de Beeck at Marianne Boesky gallery consists of a new body of works, including an installation like adaptation of the gallery space, two sculptural pieces, and a series of large black and white watercolor paintings.

Thematically the entire exhibition focuses on depopulated spaces at night, and the melancholic and alienating mood that staged, composed or constructed surroundings often convey. Contrary to what the title suggests, the show does not include a film, but offers the viewer a collection of static images that might evoke film like moods or narratives.

With simple means, the white cube gallery space is transformed into a silent interior, discreetly referring to traditional museum spaces and intimate print rooms. Because of the absence of color, this environment refers to old black and white film as well, which accentuates the representational aspect of it.
