On the occasion of the exhibition Francis Upritchard - Big Fish Eat Little Fish
Purple Pointer, 2020
lithography⎜35,4 x 27,4 x 2,7 cm (frame included)
edition: 12 + 3 AP (signed and numbered)
The project at the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is a reinterpretation of the Wetwang Slack exhibition at the Barbican Centre (London, 2018). Wetwang Slack, an archaeological site in East Yorkshire, was the starting point for exploring unusual materials such as balata, a rare Brazilian rubber from the Amazon forest. For Big Fish Eat Little Fish, Upritchard will create a number of new works in a scenography that embraces the architecture of MDD. The title refers to a drawing by Bruegel who, just like Upritchard's work, alludes to a meaningless world in which the powerful instinctively prey on the weak.
