The title of the show comes from artist’s ability to metaphorically knock the viewer’s mind calling norms into question and rethinking the reality. Though primarily creating for public spaces, where his works come to life during interactions with passersby, the American artist has also been successfully showing work indoors for […]

Previews: Emily Mae Smith – “Tesla Girls” @ Rodolphe Janssen

On October 13th, Rodolphe Janssen in Brussels will be showing for the first time the works of American artist Emily Mae Smith. The concept of Tesla Girls was inspired by Christopher Priest’s 1995 novel The Prestige and the idea of a faulty teleportation machine that creates nonidentical duplicates of a person. With this idea in mind, Smith is continuing her signature series of female portraits recognizable by round glasses, sharp hairstyles and lack of distinguishable features. These images render the female body as a blank canvas, open for interpretation. With the […]
