MWILI NA AKILI

exhibition

06.11 2016

18.12 2016

A duo exhibition with works from Charlotte Schleiffert (Tilburg, 1967) and Paul Bogaers (Tilburg, 1960).

Both Schleiffert as Bogaers employ a particular worldview in their art. Man is cental in their predominantly figurative works. Schleiffert focuses on drawing and painting in a multicolored expressive imagery. In Bogaers' work the montage of images is important. His most recent work evolves from photography to the three-dimensional and shows a personal tribal African iconography. In 'Mwili Na Akili' (Swahili for 'body and mind'), the artists meet in the desire for a different world. Both Bogaers as Schleiffert are born in Tilburg. For Schleiffert this is the first exhibition of her work in Tilburg.

'Stunning exhibition (...) The great PARK space is changed to a great anthropological disco-cave where life is good and where there is very much to see'
