Charles Lemaire

In place

Saturday 25 May to Saturday 22 June 2024

Vernissage: Saturday 25 May 16h–19h

Charles has been a dedicated supporter of Gallery Nostrum since the very beginning, and after several very successful group collaborations, we are delighted to present his first solo-exhibition at the gallery.

 “In art, for me, there should be nothing like "A place for everything, and everything in its place."

And why – in non-performing arts - do we focus exclusively on the artwork and so little on the artist at work? While the wording is sometimes the same: photography (the activity or its result), drawing, painting (verb or noun?)

What should an “exhibition” be? A still life (the French call it “dead nature”) of past artworks? An experience? A performance?

And what is the place of the exhibition? The gallery? The street? The city? The world?

Come, and find the art where it will be… and not only in the gallery”.

Charles will be present in the gallery throughout the course of the exhibition and will be “updating” the display both inside and outside these walls on an ongoing basis.


Please consult the table below and check our website and social media accounts regularly, to stay updated and not miss being in (the right) place.
