From September 7 to October 28, Jan Mot welcomes Lili Dujourie (°1941, Roeselare, BE) for her first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Since the late 1960s, the Belgian artist’s practice has spanned media from sculpture and photography to video and collage. Underlying its formal diversity is a keen sensibility to ambivalence, transition and the blurring of dichotomies. Arabesques bring movement to stasis; plaster is infused with the sensuality of textile; and the human body finds itself confronted with its fragmentation.

At Jan Mot, the centerpiece will be a sculptural intervention Dujourie has been developing since the early 1970s. Shown internationally, the work has rarely been shown in Belgium. With each iteration and context, it takes on new, different formal and political resonances.

Widely exhibited since the 1970s, Dujourie’s work has gained international prominence through such large-scale exhibitions as Documenta 12 (2007), the 7th Gwangju Biennale (2008), Sharjah Biennial 9 (2009) and the 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018). S.M.A.K., Ghent, and Mu.Zee, Ostend hosted a major solo exhibition by the artist in 2015. In 2016, Dujourie was awarded the Flemish Culture Prize for Visual Arts. Her work features in numerous private and public collections worldwide, including Castello di Rivoli, Torino; Generali Foundation Collection, Salzburg; La Caixa Foundation Collection of Contemporary Art, Barcelona; M HKA, Antwerp; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; and S.M.A.K., Ghent.

The opening of Lili Dujourie at Jan Mot coincides with the Brussels Gallery Weekend (September 7–10).
