Description

The Magician & the Surgeon

Twenty years after her first solo exhibition in Brussels, in the antechambers of the Centre for Fine Arts, the Belgian visual artist Ana Torfs is coming back with new works, including Sideshow. In this installation, a series of figures appear and disappear in an abstract decor with multi-coloured light. Figures without faces, such as a geisha, the invisible man, bird people and an illusionist with huge hands. In the images, filmed with stop-motion technique and featuring various performers, the artist's old predilections are portrayed: theatre, silent film, puppet theatre, butoh, circus, masquerade and cabaret.Ana Torfs (°1963) has lived and worked in Brussels for more than 30 years. She has had previous solo exhibitions, including at the Pori Art Museum, Finland (2017), the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Lisbon (2016), WIELS, Brussels (2014) and the K21-Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf (2010). She has also participated in major international group exhibitions such as Power of Language, Museum der Moderne, Salzburg (2018), Reading Cinema, Finding Words, Art after Marcel Broodthaers, National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (2014) and many biennials. She is currently preparing a solo exhibition in MUAC, Mexico City.
