In a Lifetime

24 11 19 – 08 03 20

Le Grand-Hornu
82 Rue Sainte-Louise
7301 Hornu (Belgium)

In a Lifetime is my contribution to the exhibition Nature Morte / Nature Vivante in Le Grand-Hornu. It is the first phase of a radical statement for which the slag deposits of the Borinage coal mines serve as a model. In 2019 I worked in 19th-century Le Grand-Hornu. The former mine’s building and village form a UNESCO world heritage site. For my contribution to Nature Morte / Nature Vivante I was granted the use of Les Ecuries, an overwhelming space in the museum. Le Grand-Hornu’s history inspired me to set the first step toward a career transformation: from now on, I intend to regard all my older work that is still in my own possession as base material for future projects. Literally. The whole process from concept to installation was documented in a magazine by Jeroen van Westen, see Publication

Exhibitions between 2009 and 2019 will be added soon.

‘Desert Passage’ is an exhibition featuring the work of three outstanding artists focusing on the issues of land, water, and culture specific to the arid land of the high desert of New Mexico. These artists, Gerco de Ruijter, Jeroen van Westen (both from the Netherlands) and Anne Ausloos (Belgium) all have exhibited extensively in Europe and beyond.

This exhibition has developed after years of work, many trips to New Mexico, and an artist-published book also entitled ‘Desert Passage’ that documents the work of each artist and their guide Ton Haak.

Introduction speech by Cor Blok

Ausloos and Ausloos. Paul (82) and Anne (55). Each on a wall of their own. Not without reason, as we will see later on.
One immediately notices the contrasts between one Ausloos and the other. Paul’s digital prints –digitally edited photographs– present a quiet, silent scene. A few domestic objects are assembled into one compact, simple form – almost square. Compact, yet so transparent that front and back appear interchangeable; with soft tones; and everything appears to be drawn into the frame, into the image, almost into the wall.
