‘Bootleg Paintings’ is a series of works based on classics of 20th-century painting. In his own way, Durinck translates well-known and lesser-known 20th-century works by repainting them in a combination of bright green and black oil paint. This collection contains works by a wide variety of artists: including Picasso’s Les demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), L’usage de la Parole (1927-29) by Magritte, Le movement des billes (1926) by Fernand Léger, Zig-zag Zigzag (1987) by René Daniëls, The Studio (1969) by Philip Guston, Käthe Grüsse (1990) by Luc Tuymans, ….
The series was started in 2019 and counts 36 paintings today.

Posture Editions N° 52
Book launch: Sun 18.06
at PLUS-ONE Gallery
In 2021, Posture Editions published ‘In Between’, Ritsart’s very first publication. ‘Reclining Fragments’ forms the second volume on the artist’s work and contains almost all the works Ritsart made from late 2020 to mid-2023. The book will be launched at the finissage of ‘Prologue’, the exhibition at PLUS-ONE gallery.
Consistently, Ritsart continues to build an evocative and tactile oeuvre in which he increasingly challenges the viewer’s perception and causes the gaze to slow down.
More than in the first book ‘In Between’ – with works from 2017 to 2020 – the artist incorporates fragments/citations of other artists into his paintings, raising the question of what motivations preceded that choice.

With a conversation between Barbara De Coninck and the artist
Erased and Not Erased
Armed with pencil, eraser and box cutter, Fabrice Souvereyns (b. 1995) creates a detailed world based on intense observations and perceptions.
Souvereyns’s young oeuvre draws inspiration from the physical world, from fauna and flora and from what is visible to humankind in the skies. In addition, more ‘invisible’ themes also play a substantial role in the work. The influence of, for example, science cannot be denied, while art history also serves as inspiration for the artist’s eccentric plant world.
While working, he is guided by spontaneity, yet the drawings are not simply the result of automatism. Each movement, whether adding or omitting, leaves a unique trace and is a deliberate choice by the artist.
Posture Editions N° 50 brings together these diverse landscapes and functions as a first retrospective work of the young artist.

Book launch: 31.03.2023 — 20:00
‘Oei’ is the title of a notebook that Guy Rombouts (b. 1949) filled from front to back with the word ‘oei’, during a week in the month of July in the year 1976.
Weaving this word as one long stream of thought through the pages of the book under ever-changing guises creates a primal litany in which mistakes are sung over and over again in all their impossibility.
‘Oei’ is the title of the exhibition at S.M.A.K. (31.03-14.05.2023) in which the artist bridges the early beginnings of his practice and transforms this wondrous word into a total installation.
The facsimile of the notebook ‘oei’ will be published in its entirety at full size as Posture Pockets N° 3.
