Peter Rogiers is no stranger to the Middelheim Museum. The Belgian artist has been a guest artist there before, and his work Two Reclining Figures on a Calder Base is part of the permanent collection.

About

Clusters in Braem Pavilion and Hortiflora

The exhibition title refers to the combination of specific works and – more importantly – to the mutually reinforcing effect created if the right elements are brought together.

In the Braem Pavilion, Rogiers’ existing and new small sculptures and etchings will engage in dialogue with pieces he selects from the sculpture museum’s permanent collection.

The superb surroundings of the Hortiflora flower garden provide additional support for his ‘sculpture islands’, arrangements of his own creations combined with works from the Middelheim Museum’s permanent collection.

 

Quirky virtuoso

Peter Rogiers’ work consists of sculptures, drawings, etchings, film and comics. He is fascinated by certain graphic novels, by B-movies, dance and other quirky art forms. These inspire his own work, which runs against the grain of current standards and artistic trends.

Rogiers often works with synthetic materials such as PU foam, epoxy, polyester and stainless steel, but also explores the contemporary possibilities of ‘classical’ bronze. His penchant for detached yet pronounced colours makes the work stand apart from its context and at the same time makes it impossible to ignore. His work is both energetic and poetical, and is presented with a good deal of humour and a sense of perspective. It is high time that this quirky virtuoso is presented to the general public.
