This winter de Appel arts centre simultaneously presents solo projects by the Belgian photographer/filmmaker Dirk Braeckman (1958) and the British artist Zarina Bhimji (1963). Braeckmans sensitive and large-scale photographs in shades of grey do not tell elaborate stories but are charged with an atmosphere which makes them “tick away like time bombs,” in the words of the author Luc Sante. The suggestive force and narrative potential of images are just as essential for Bhimji, whose latest film Yellow Patch (2011) has its Dutch premiere in de Appel arts centre.
In this exhibition Braeckman presents a carefully chosen selection of new photographs culled from the untitled publication recently released by Roma Publications (a cross between an artist’s book and a catalogue raisonné).
