La galerie imaginaire
in February 27, 2015, la GALERIE IMAGINAIRE was conceived and initiated on a simple advertisement to the press. The gallery directed by Sébastien Delire is the fruit of long discussions with artist Nico Dockx. The result is a letter from the artist to the gallerist inviting him to close his former gallery (Delire gallery) and to travel with an imaginary gallery, while inviting an interdisciplinary community of artists, composers, philosophers, architects, designers and poets to answer the following question:
« How, what, when and where do you imagine the notion of a gallery ? ».
Through the question, la GALERIE IMAGINAIRE lies a reexamination of the galllery model as laboratory of possibilities. Since 2015, the gallery has collaborated with different artists in numerous projects, organizing individual and collective exhibitions around the world.
Witty and poetic, the work of David Horvitz meddles with systems of language, time and networks.
