TUUR & FLUP MARINUS

The brothers Tuur and Flup Marinus are copying their stamp album ‘Belgisch Congo Belge’ page by page into a series of trompe l’oeil oil paintings. Cheerfully naive amateurism intertwines with an absurd feeling of ‘Wiedergutmachung’ for Belgiums colonial past. Overwhelming aesthetics - simultaneously trivial and monumental - bear witness to different histories and stories: colonialism, the obsolescence of letters and stamps, childhood memories and so on.

Showroom is the exhibition platform of Sint Lucas Antwerpen. Its name refers to the past use of the exhibition space as a showroom for cars. The programme for Showroom cosists of diverse projects in which students are involved as much as possible. With its international exchange projects and exhibitions, Showroom becomes an instrument in our ambition to guide students in their interesting, artistic careers.

The exhibition 'Belgisch Congo Belge'  @ Showroom is an initiative of the Research Group Plot(less).
