alison jacques gallery is currently showing the work of artist ian kiaer in the exhibition ‘endless house project, horta / van eetvelde’. the show was originally installed in a brussels town house designed by victor horta. the home featured a central open vault which the daily movements in the house revolved around. kiaer used the architectural form to think about the quiet space particular to painting. ‘the work points to painting’s privilege to be hermetic and leave empty what is empty, resisting our anxiety to prematurely fill it with the justification of words’. the exhibition is comprised of canvases and sculptures, making up the single work. ian kiaer lives and works in london.
