Introduction by Annelies A.A. Vanbelle at 17h
Where does our memory stores our memories, can our human brain store endless all memories ? Every human seems to have an immense capacity of storage, a hard disk that seems te have no limits to be filled with what we remember and what we have forgotten. An this seemingly erased part of our memory has an influence on our skills, habits and behaviour.
The artist Yves Velter creates images that reflect what we ignore en what that does with a human being. He bundles subjects that we in our daily lives consciously seem to want to ignore, themes that are present in the outward bounds of our thinking en feeling. In his work he shows the influence of just that on our mood, personality and memory. In this exhibition he brings together the different codes that visualise his fascination for the impact of that invisible presence of the forgotten.
The figures in his paintings and sculptural installations do not receive a lot of context or identity, nevertheless they contain each a material with a symbolical value and a story, like the perforated carton, mirrors, letters or pictures. The artist talks of his ‘sculptural alphabet’. These visual elements gige form to questions and answers, fears or desires. An introduction in a world of symbol, poetry and ratio. tegelijkertijd. In alle stilte is de impact van wat verborgen is, bijzonder groot.
