Yvon Vandycke is an expressionist painter from Mons. 2020 is the twentieth anniversary of his death. For us, it is an opportunity to do justice to his life’s work, which is too little known in Belgium, by organising a vast retrospective exhibition at La Boverie museum. In Vandycke’s work, the body’s condition is the subject of the texts, painting, engraving and drawing. The face has a curious position in this contact with disorder, revolt, fraternities and the magnificence of the body. As a frontier, it comes first: it shows, and it hides. It is also blind to the point of sometimes disappearing from women’s bodies, headless women, women from behind... Or, on the contrary, it contaminates all the forms, sliding from the eyes in the folds of a stomach, in a haunted background, in the figure of dreams.

A Trinkhall project.
