For the seventh exhibition in the series “Matters of Concern | Matières à panser”, La Verrière welcomes French artist duo mountaincutters, who have lived and worked in Brussels since 2015. For their first exhibition in the Belgian capital, the artists present a new body of work based on a site-specific scenography that takes into account the dimensions and the qualities – the height, the form, the lighting – of the exhibition space. Their works, whose hybrid nature lends itself to a certain destabilisation of the viewer, use transitory situations and incomplete forms to shape strange compositions endowed with a savage beauty. Amongst the modified materials and organic fragments that make up their work, carefully handcrafted elements create a subtle tension, to which drawings, films and texts arranged throughout the space also contribute. Through this exhibition and its poetic title, Les Indices de la respiration primitive (“Signs of primal breath”), mountaincutters offer an original perspective on the place of humans within the world and its elements, both living and inert.
