Diving in Patatland, with Michel Devaux

With the "Patatland" exhibition, Michel Devaux invites you to an anthropo-patatière immersion in the slightly surrealist universe of "Patatland". There, on this great island-continent which floats and moves constantly on the oceans, the potato is presented as a metaphor for the collective human being. Childhood, loves, pleasures of existence, life in society... "The simple metaphor of potatoes concealed an unlimited field of possibilities: with them, I could deal with anonymity, human feelings, universals, situations the most diverse. They immediately placed my paintings in the generality, while giving them a great evocative force. (...) Everyone, therefore, could see their neighbor there or, even, choose to recognize themselves there, ”explains Michel Devaux. The first exhibition in Belgium of the painter Michel Devaux. Don't miss it, you would peel your imagination!

From the fries stand to popular song, through history, gastronomy, literature, illustration, etc. the fries come out of their cone with humor and friendliness. Fries are expressed through the Fritkot Culture, recognized as intangible and cultural/oral heritage in Belgium since 2017..
