summer in the city
Babette Cooijmans, Johannes Elebaut,
Fiona Koene, Johan Van Oeckel,
Hantraxdolls, Axelle Vertommen
25 June - 17 July 2021
To celebrate summer, ZEIT invited a handful of young talents to submit a series of works of their own choice.
Babette Cooijmans uses lithography and screen-printing techniques as tools for drawing to produce mesmerizing monoprints, whilst Johannes Elebaut presents intriguing zooms taken from his carefully constructed collages. Fascinated by shadow play and daylight, Utrecht-based Fiona Koene treats us to a series of blind embossed works on fine art paper. In Johan Van Oeckel’s oeuvre, it’s all about pure form and colour. To complement the pieces from these four essentially abstract artists, we invited Hantraxdolls, whose thought-provoking creations add a playful note, as well as designer Axelle Vertommen with her new range of Brion lamps, to make the brightest time of year even brighter.
We combine all of this with paintings and screen prints from the ZEIT collection.
Welcome from 25 June onwards.
Includes works by:
Babette Cooijmans, Johannes Elebaut, Fiona Koene, Johan Van Oeckel, Hantraxdolls & Axelle Vertommen
Presented alongside paintings, collages and screen prints by Jean Rustin, Paul Van Hoeydonck, Pol Mara, Noël Vermeulen, Etienne Béothy, Jo Delahaut, Guy Vandenbranden, Willem Van Hecke, Luc Peire, Walter Leblanc & Ferdinand Vonck, amongst others
