The Sui generis walls-header

Sui generis

10 May 2010 @ 8h00 - 11 May 2010 @ 17h00

Derived from Roman law, sui generis is a term meaning “of its own kind”.

27 May 2020 @ 8h00 - 11 July 2020 @ 17h00

‘Rhymes and Enantiomorphs’ is a collaboration between Denitsa Todorova and Stephan Balleux on pictorial deconstruction and reconstruction. The complex, ambiguous œuvre of Stephan Balleux reveals the artist’s obsession with the mechanisms involved in the power of the image. Through an expertly analytical approach, Balleux turns the media environment to which we are all subjected daily…
