WIELS again* / by fariba mosleh

… as it´s simply interesting and a pleasure I went to WIELS again yesterday to the opening of Belgian artist Koenraad Dedobbeleer’s exhibition Kunststoff: Gallery of Material Culture, curated by Zoë Gray and attended the accompanied talk Musée des Accessoires by Patricia Falguières, an art critic and historian based in Paris - again a challenge as it was in French, but a good training to listen to museology, material culture and the topic of display :)
Actually I really like Dedobbelleleer’s approach to the topic of display in the exhibition space - his mix of found object installations and his own sculptures. Even though the first part displays older works dating back till 2003 everything fits together and makes you feel like in an indoor sculpture park until you go up into the second floor of the exhibition where the artist kind of takes care of the visitor installing an salon like environment with a heating stove and a room full of wood bullets and an incredible view over Brussels.
