The Brussels-born artist Marcel Berlanger has been exploring a specific relationship between painting and scenography for years, where the image creation process is concomitant to its method of production and both elements are inextricably linked to each other. For his exhibition in BPS22, the artist went through his stock image archive, filled with celebrities, plants and landscapes, and recreated them through the technique of squaring up the images in the way of old masters. The result is an achievement in stage design, where the main hall of the gallery becomes an otherworldly scene of Berlanger’s imagination. Special performances of Iwona, une Opérette éléctronique will also take place in situ in April.
