Foundry, the distinguished creative community for arts and events in Downtown Dubai, announced that it will host Belgian conceptual artist Arne Kans tomorrow (14th of this month), where fine art lovers will be able to learn about a group of famous sculptures of this international artist, in addition to having the opportunity to meet directly, during the opening night of the exhibition.
Arne Kanz is a prominent contemporary artist active in many artistic fields, including painting, sculpture, and the creation of large-scale sculptures. Drawing inspiration from his passion for the rich world of flora and fauna, he puts untamed nature in the face of urban life to pose questions about its role in the field, as it turns cities into open-air museums.
Connoisseurs of art in Dubai will be able to get acquainted with six prominent monochrome works by Kans made of aluminium. Known as the Chroma Lupines, this series of six figures has a distinctly austere character and was created by Kans through sculpting with an engraving tool.
These artworks reflect the tremendous energy that nature exhibits during its development stage. The much-anticipated Kanz exhibition in Dubai is being organized with the support of Emaar Art, an initiative aimed at adding aesthetic and creative experiences within Emaar’s complexes and activating people’s communication with the thriving artistic and cultural scene in Dubai.
Commenting on this topic, Oliver Crasson, General Manager of Besix Middle East, co-organizer of the exhibition and owner of the sculptures, said: “The Besix Group is very grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Emaar Art to host and display our art pieces in the Foundry creative community. Dubai residents and the large numbers of visitors coming to the UAE to visit Expo 2020 Dubai. As part of Expo’s spirit of coming together, BESIX looks forward to enabling communication between a famous Belgian artist and lovers of fine art in the UAE.”
