The Artist/Knight

July 11 - November 5, 2017
among others with Lovis Corinth and Lucio Fontana
Kasteel van Gaasbeek, Gaasbeek, Belgium
 
The image of the knight has had a strong appeal to our imagination since childhood. Romantics dream of a knight riding a beautiful white horse. What does this archetypal symbol stand for? Do the knightly values of self-restraint and loyalty still have any meaning today?
Curator Joanna De Vos is off on an exploratory quest, creating an international group exhibition in Gaasbeek Castle centring on the tribute paid by contemporary artists to the idealistic interpretation of the knight. The works of art, comprising drawings and paintings as well as sculptures, installations and films, accompany the visitor to an imaginary world that evokes the spirit of chivalry. The work will include themes such as the self-portrait of the artist as knight, the female knight, the knight’s suit of armour and decoration, his or her character, the castle as a place of residence and the jousting game.
