Spectral Harvest
Mar 14 – Apr 27, 2024
DMW Gallery
Antwerp, Belgium

DMW Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Spectral Harvest, a duo exhibition featuring works by Fia Cielen and Julie De Kezel. The exhibition presents a narrative where spirits and scarecrows coexist in harmony, the former guiding visitors through a journey of enchanted landscapes, the latter illuminating unseen threads connecting the terrestrial to the ethereal.

Spectral Harvest explores the concept of environmental alchemy, with the scarecrows transforming from traditional protectors of crops to symbols of ecological stewardship. Cielen and De Kezel invite visitors to contemplate the interconnectedness between the spiritual and agricultural realms, fostering a renewed sense of responsibility towards the Earth.

Cielen’s ethereal drawings, sculptures, and monumental prints serve as portals to a dimension where spirits and elements intertwine. De Kezel’s installations focus on biodiverse microorganisms that transcend the boundaries of the physical and metaphysical. Together, their works invite contemplation on the mysterious forces that shape the natural world and the role of guardianship in environmental sustainability.

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)
