discrepancies by Leonor Antunes

28.04-03.07.22

The sculptural and spatial creations of Portuguese artist Leonor Antunes are the result of a subtle exchange between the context in which they are exhibited , a local know-how, and an embodied encounter with the works. Imbued with the legacy of modernist women architects and designers,her work also relates to the vernacular and resists the extreme rationalisation of creative processes.

For her exhibition at La Loge, Antunes presents a new installation of light fixtures, questioning the objects’fragility as well as their functionality. The exhibition also acts as a starting point for Antunes’ in-depth research project on Simone Guillissen-Hoa, one of Belgium's first female architects.

About

La Loge is a Brussels-based space dedicated to contemporary art, architecture and theory that began its activities in 2012. Its aim is to develop a critical program that emerges from the connection to the reality it is embedded in. By inviting multivocal, heterogeneous perspectives, La Loge aims to gain a more nuanced understanding of cultural and societal issues. Architects, artists and cultural agents are invited to develop propositions in which they seek out the characteristic and the peculiar within their practices.

La Loge is a space where ideas, discussion and presentation coexist.

La Loge’s identity stems from the architectural gem that houses it, as well as from the commitment and concerns of its founders.

La Loge values engagement of thought and feels particularly interested in exploring questions of space, habitat and use. The intimate sphere of La Loge contributes to a context where conversations with its audience and the diversity of protagonists it invites can be initiated and sustained.

La Loge is a privately initiated non-profit association founded by architect Philippe Rotthier.

Building

La Loge is located in a former Masonic temple built in 1934-1935 by Modernist architects Fernand Bodson and Louis Van Hooveld. The building had been commissioned by the Freemason Obedience Le Droit Humain, which was first implemented in Belgium in 1912.

The temple is part of a group of four houses – a garage and a house, both from 1927, and an artist's studio, from 1930 – designed by Fernand Bodson. The complex forms a small but exceptional Modernist site in Brussels.

Bodson and Van Hooveld's architectural project for the building breaks with the Egyptian style that had traditionally served as the main source of inspiration in the conception of Masonic temples and envisages instead the development of a modern temple in line with the progressive character of Le Droit Humain. The building hosted the activities of Le Droit Humain until 1976; from 1984 to 2011, the former lodge housed the Museum of the AAM (Archives d’Architecture Moderne).
