The exhibition Flagrant Delight provides an overview of the work of German artist Rosemarie Trockel, one of the major artists of her generation, in Belgium. Through a very personal and subjective approach to avant-garde themes, she proposed an alternative to rigid formalism and expressive painting at the beginning of the 1980s, and thus laid the foundations for what became postmodernism.
Today, a few decades later, the fundamental principles of her practice and work still involve the notions of freedom and transgression of the limits of academicism. They can be characterised by unconventional associations and profound knowledge of the languages, as well as the forms and symbols of avant-garde.
