‘Arena’, Nosbaum Reding, Brussels (BE)


24 May 2023 – 22 July 2023

Atelier Van Lieshout presents a new body of work at Nosbaum Reding Gallery under the title ‘Arena’

Art history is filled with dying warriors, from the felled fighter on the battle fields of Ancient Greece to Henry Moore’s Warrior with Shield  breathing his last breath. They sacrificed themselves for the people, fatherland or ideology. These heroes know that fighting might end in dying, sometimes even by their own sword to uphold the honor.

The Fallen Warrior series of Atelier Van Lieshout is part of this tradition, with the difference that these sculptures have no fixed top or bottom. They can be placed and read in various ways, representing warriors who won’t stop fighting even when their worldview flips.
