Mireille Robbe (Brussels, 1962)
We are happy to announce the first solo show ‘Persez-Verrez’ of Mireille Robbe in our gallery in Brussels. The artist thoughtfully titled this exhibition “Persez-Verrez”, a link to a series of her works and a play on words from “La langue des Oiseaux.” It provides us with insight into her work and her attitude towards life.
Mireille Robbe studied at Sint-Lucas in Brussels and at the art academy of Leuven. Lives and works in Leuven.
A kaleidoscope of experiences is to be found in the works of Mireille Robbe: a range of life lessons, searching, and probing. A quest to find herself, be it via her suitcase in the painter’s studio of Maurice Van Saene at Sint-Lucas in Brussels, reading, intuition, …A complex embroidery about the essence of life, and death. About tangible things and about magical concoctions. Her work shows us the ingenuity of creation, or nature, which she links to human psychology, and makes us reflect on details that escape us because they are so seemingly obvious. Just as surrealists often departed from a recognizable reality, evoking on top of it their own and yet universally recognized mysticism and eroticism. The work of Mireille Robbe questions individuation in a space to think (differently), translated into essential beauty.
