“Torn Clean” Exhibition by Chloe Wise at Almine Rech Brussels, on view from May 25th

Chloe Wise makes bodies appear, coming to greet us, embrace us, then engulf us. Through the artificially-sustained laughter and the superficially-relaxed poses, the painter quietly introduces an uncanny feeling, a disturbing current. After welcoming us into her flawless world, Chloe Wise gradually introduces a latent, crushing fear. The artist discusses the “flesh” color of Band-Aids, designed to stick on the skin to both protect the wound, and to make it disappear from sight. Chloe Wise forces us to reveal ourselves where innocence is deranged.

On view until May 25th
