CENTRALE presents Antoinette d’Ansembourg‘s exhibition “From the ground, with love” at CENTRALE | vitrine (23.11.2023 > 17.03.2024).

Antoinette d’Ansembourg’s draws the timeless strangeness that emanates from her installations from the territory of the city, where new building sites blossom daily, ripping open buildings and excavating streets to expose the overhead or underground networks of cables that supply it with their fluids or electrical flows like a living being. In these areas off-limits to the public and of uncertain temporality, she notes the connections between rubble and plants that have the capacity to grow in hostile environments. She is sensitive to these changes in the nature of beings and things, to their transgenic potential. A “confrontation between human construction and the development of nature” is questioned by the artist in the very construction of her installations, where unspeakable mutations are forged and unnatural organisms are born, resulting from the improbable combination of the living and the waste.
