Michaël BorremansThe Badger's Song
Ambiguity and contradiction are the twin hallmarks of the paintings, drawings and films of Michaël Borremans (b. 1963). He deploys his technical virtuosity to create apparently familiar scenes, which on closer inspection have an unsettling effect. He combines black humour, violence, absurdism and beauty to produce images that are strange and alienating, in which the subject seems to be situated in an undefined time and space. This catalogue provides an overview of Michaël Borremans’ work since 2013. The majority of the works have never been published before. The book focuses on the different series of paintings he has exhibited over recent years: ‘Black Mould’, ‘Fire From the Sun’ and ‘Coloured Cones’. Working in series is a recent development in Borremans’ oeuvre.
