THESE ARE THE PROMISING ARTISTS

An international panel of art experts has selected the 20 most promising artists from a long list of sixteen artists between the ages of 40 and 10.

Zoro Feigl

The rise of Zoro Feigl, whose kinetic artworks were on display in Museum Beelden aan Zee in 2010, is unstoppable. Numerous exhibitions followed later in C&H gallery and DordtYart, among others. His retrospective INFINITY attracted so much attention last year that everyone in the art world now knows him. Feigl's experimental works of art not only appeal to boys' dreams, he also refers very directly to painting and sometimes uses stimulating theatrical effects.

Johan Gelper

Johan Gelper almost always builds his playful assemblages from existing material. They are airy objects, somewhat resembling a drawing or a simple scribble. His strength lies in the assembly of separate, deviating elements into an image that clearly shows coherence. Existing shapes and objects suddenly take on a completely different meaning in a new context. Gelper already has several exhibitions at, among others, the Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke and the SMAK.

Laurianne Bixhain

Luxembourgish Laurianne Bixhain questions the rapid obsolescence of existing technology due to constant innovation. With her photos she captures strange anachronisms, drawing attention to the discrepancy between human affairs, high technology and the remains of the technological revolution. Laurianne was awarded various stipends and prizes, for example she was nominated for the Unseen Talent Award 2016 and she received an important encouragement prize for young artists in Luxembourg, the LEAP 2018.
