The Mother

A sleek, Newyork-lofty adaptation of Florian Zeller’s play, translated into English by Christopher Hampton. Yes, it was funny and dark and drunkenly depressed to the point of self-destruction, but all I remember is Hupper’s magnetic performance – and that slutty red mini dress. I remember thinking how is it possible for this tiny slender figure to exude such fierce energy. Even those who don’t particularly care about her style, would have no choice than simply bow to her charisma.

The Illustrious R. Crumb

Robert Crumb is an unblinking witness to and graphic critic of the dysfunctional strangeness of the Disunited States. He is peerless in that regard because there’s simply no one like him and no one is as ”far out”. – Robert Storr

David Zwirner: 25 Years

In 2018, David Zwirner celebrated their 25th anniversary and, on that occasion, New York was treated with a special exhibition of works by some of the artists the gallery represented over the years.

David Zwirner was the only New York gallery on my radar before coming to the City, because they represent one of my favourite Belgian artists, Michaël Borremans. I went to the exhibition hoping to see some of his works and, sure enough, a couple of his smaller-size paintings were on show. This is one of them, but if you’d like to see more of Borremans’ amazing  work, please hop over to my Brussels blog, for highlights from an exhibition held in Brussels, in 2014.
