|(Born)||1965 in Brussels, Belgium|
The work of Marcel Berlanger, expressing an act that is at once painterly, figurative and installation and stage-oriented, unfolds in multiple dimensions, tirelessly exploring the inclusion of the figure – both its construction and deconstruction – in the space of the image. In continuance of the resonances sought between documents, boards and canvasses in earlier works, more recent paintings focus on how the light lies at the heart of all perception. Indeed, it is through the very vibrations and pulsations of the light that the image/document here appears in the pictorial space.
