" For his first solo show in the U.S., conceptual artist Gert Scheerlinck brings elements from his hometown in relation to what is happening worldwide. How should we consider these FRAGMENTS in reference to recent events? Should we consider this exhibition to be a political statement or is Scheerlinck just sharing a memory of his youth? Do fragmented memories color our nostalgia for a “simpler” time? These are the questions at hand. "

OBJECTS OF DISGUISE.
" In his work Scheerlinck is questioning the meaning of sculpture from the legitimacy that produces its placement in the public sphere or the art institution. We are dealing with an artist who not only moves values that reach a symbolic dimension, he also brings a twist, an estrangement between the invention and what is projected as reality. It is interesting to see this fragile crossover between sculpture and installation in different works, in a language where the object acts like a performer who improvises his place in the scene. "
