Eddy Merckx at Sportimonium

leave a comment »

To mark the centenary of the Tour of Flanders, an exhibition entitled ‘On the wheel of Eddy Merckx’ has been launched at the Sportimonium museum in Hofstade-Zemst, on the outskirts of Mechelen to the north of Brussels. The Sportimonium is a member of the Olympic Museums Network. The exhibition focuses on Merckx’s career, but you can learn about the highlights of cycling history and the memorable career of Eddy Merckx in an interactive quiz and an activity game on a tablet. More info on the exhibition website. I worked on some of the English translations.

The exhibition provides an overview of van Golden’s work from the 1960s until today. It mostly consists of paintings, although it does also include a series of van Golden’s photographs of his daughter Diana. Apperception runs until 29 April 2012.

The painting pictured below on the cover of the visitor’s guide is entitled White Painting and dates from 1966. I was responsible for the English translation of the 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.
