For the final exhibition in the series "Matters of Concern | Matières à panser", Lucy McKenzie presents "Buildings in Belgium, Buildings in Oil, Buildings in Silk”. A monumental installation in the form of a large-scale painting, the Scottish artist’s work covers the walls of La Verrière, subtly interrogating its architectural environment.
Until March 26, 2022, gaze up at the 45-metre triptych gracing the Brussels artspace of the Fondation d'entreprise Hermès, as the artist questions the official, heroic history of modernity in fashion, architecture and design, highlighting its contradictions, blind spots and shadowlands.
