Sacred Places: Pilgrimages in Judaism, Christianity and Islam

leave a comment »

I recently had the good fortune to work on the exhibition catalogue Sacred Places: Pilgrimages in Judaism, Christianity and Rome. Together with my co-editor Lise Connellan, I edited some of the essays in the volume and proofread the entire catalogue. Published by BAI for the MAS, the catalogue accompanies the Sacred Places exhibition that runs at the MAS Museum aan de Stroom in Antwerp from 19 September 2014 until 18 January 2015. A parallel exhibition, Sacred Books, opens on the same day at the Hendrik Conscience Heritage Library in Antwerp. More information on both exhibitions can be found on the Sacred Places, Sacred Books joint website. Whether one is religious or not, it surely can’t be a bad thing to learn a bit about religious beliefs, what they consist of, and why they matter to so many people around the globe. I’m certainly looking forward to visiting the exhibition.

The Painting and its Double is the title of an exhibition of work by the Belgian artist Stephan Balleux at the Musée d’Ixelles until 14 September. I worked on the proofreading of the English edition of the catalogue, published by Racine.

leave a comment »

Jules Wabbes (1919-1974) is one of the leading Belgian furniture designers of the post-war period. An exhibition devoted to his work is currently running at the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. The show runs until Sunday 13 January and was curated by Marie Ferran-Wabbes and Iwan Strauwen in a scenography by Jurgen Persijn. I proofread the exhibition catalogue, which is published by A+editions and Bozar Books. I also proofread the short visitor’s guide.

Christian Dotremont’s Salute to Denmark

leave a comment »

An exhibition on the work of the Belgian poet and artist Christian Dotremont (1922-1979) opens today, 28 October 2011, at the Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum in Herning, Denmark. Dotremont, one of the founders of Cobra and the driving force behind the group, was drawn to Denmark from a very young age and visited the country many times during his lifetime. He first went there in 1948 with the Danish painter Asger Jorn, with whom he created the first word-paintings. Dotremont would later create his famous logograms.

The exhibition runs until 26 February 2012. The catalogue, pictured below, includes my translations (from French) of the article “Dotremont in the Land of Nja” and of the biography. I also translated titles of his works and other short texts used in the exhibition.

The exhibition “This is my chosen homeland”: Christian Dotremont and the North was held from 29 October 2010 to 9 January 2011 at the Lönnström Art Museum of Rauma, in Finland. It featured works from the collections of the French-speaking Community of Belgium. This is the cover of the catalogue, for which I translated the French text into English.
