Hush/Hush is thrilled to invite Eloïse Baele (born in 1999, Belgium) for the first solo exhibition at the new project space in Bruges. Baele will be exhibiting a collection of recently created sculptures that complement several of her older pieces from 2022. Additionally, she will showcase her self-published book, “De Schaduw van de Vector,” for the very first time.

“Why does the boundary between the two and three-dimensional intrigue me? When two planes intersect, a third dimension emerges, but this always implies blind spot. One perspective excludes the other. When one reads the words, the sculpture cannot be seen, and vice versa. If one comprehends the entirety of one plane, the other diminishes into a mere thin line. I am interested in a definition of space as the convergence of multiple dimensions.”
The most recent sculptures on display in this exhibition originate from drawings of words that in a sense expand, shift and grow in size. Recognizing the spatial potential of these extruded words, Baele decided to make the flat drawings into sculptures, making light words into vast and concrete objects.
If poetry is rather an exercise in forging connections than in creating, Baele explores this principle in a very literal manner. Her ‘word sculptures’ are a tangible and concrete exploration of the arbitrary act of combining. In Head on Collision, Baele creates absurd piles of words, making herself a comical builder of worlds.
