Exhibition "PLIS"

From Saturday 08/02 to Sunday 24/05

"Le pli est partout.
Depuis la formation de la terre, comme en témoignent les synclinaux ;
De la naissance, à travers le sexe de notre mère jusqu’au linceul mortuaire ;
A travers le temps, dans nombre d’artefacts ;
A travers le monde, les femmes et les hommes plient, plissent, drapent…"

Quote of the exhibition’s curator, Patricia Gérimont.

"PLI / PLOOI / PLEAT" is an exhibition which explores the notion of pleats on a large-view basis, concentrating mainly on textile pleats. Nevertheless, other artistic forms of expression, such as photography, sculpture, painting or performance complete the broad panel of shown objects.

The exhibition will take place from February 8, 2020 until May 22, 2020, ending date that coincides with the European Museum Night.

The venues are TAMAT (le Musée de la Tapisserie, des Arts Muraux et des Arts du Tissu de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, freely translated as the Tapestry, Mural and Textile Arts Museum of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles) and the Museum of Fine Arts of the city of Tournai.

The alphabet as main lead provides the exhibition with a certain logic. On the one hand, the abecedarium connects both museum at content level, on the other it creates the opportunity to develop as many as 26 aspects of the theme, which is pleats.
