FLOWER POWER !
From Friday 10 March
The Autrique House presents the work and life of Privat Livemont, an emblematic Art Nouveau artist from Brussels. Working as a versatile artist, a craftsman, and a teacher at the Industrial Academy in Schaerbeek, Livemont seems to have been a tireless worker.
From March 2023 to January 2024, the Autrique House presents the work and life of Privat Livemont, an emblematic Art Nouveau artist from Brussels. Working as a versatile artist, a craftsman, and a teacher at the Industrial Academy in Schaerbeek, Livemont seems to have been a tireless worker. He is best known for his posters and the sgraffiti on many facades in Brussels.
The delicacy of his line, his taste for decorative plant elements and their stylisation, his fertile imagination and his colourful palette make Privat Livemont an important figure that Maison Autrique has chosen to honour in 2023, the year of Art Nouveau.
In collaboration with the Commune of Schaerbeek and ARCHistory
The scent of woman
8 - 31 March 2023
103 Art Deco ivory statuettes from a Belgian private collection
The Lempertz Auction House is pleased to present an exhibition of the finest Belgian collection of Art Deco ivory statuettes. These female miniature figures were created by various male artists. They show an idealized vision of the young woman, full of grace and innocence in her nudity.The figurines pose as graceful dancers or athletes reminiscent of Venus or Eve.
This representation of women is characteristic of the period between the world wars, also known as the "Golden Twenties".After the horrible years of the First World War, society gives free rein to a certain exuberance and lightness, which is reflected in the art. Described by many as "small sculpture", and being commissioned by the upper middle class, these works of art are considered purely decorative objects. Ivory is favored as a soft material and wonderful light diffusor to bring out the sensuality and velvet of the female nude. All these sculptures are executed with very great precision and mastery.
The exhibition catalogue will be on sale on site.
The Lempertz Auction House is delighted to open the doors of the Hôtel Leroy, a historic Art Nouveau building designed by the architect Jules Barbier (1865-1911), to the public of the BANAD Festival.

A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON PARADISE
03/03 - 12/31 2023
With EDEN 2.023, Violaine Alghisi exhumes with a gentle lightning the whole message of liberation and questioning of the classical norms and codes carried by the Art Nouveau in its time.
Silhouettes, sometimes sensual, sometimes enigmatic, but always free, stand out like ghosts brought back to life on the walls and stained-glass windows of these monuments, reflections of a bygone era but nevertheless very present.
In her photos, the calm of the place becomes a pretext for transgressing the common rules of museums: here, we dance on the furniture of the Villa Autrique, we choreograph the furniture of Hamesse and so much the worse for the frozen whiteness of the tablecloths, it is
the majesty of the bodies in movement that asserts itself standing on the dining room table!
A tender but impetuous artist, she gives us a look that mixes past and present, still and animated, which has chosen the more confidential Masterpieces of Belgian Art Nouveau as
Her approach questions the biases of style to offer a delicately punk vision of a newly postulated life of a Belle Époque revisited...
Twenty-five 80x120 photos, colour or black and white, selected with the eye and the heart for an immobile journey into the mysteries of the Hôtel Cohn-Donnay, the Maison Autrique, the Hôtel Hannon, the Horta Museum and the Horta Chapel, or the Maison des Médecins de Charleroi...
