Lode Laperre



solo show Lode Laperre

20 May - 2 July 2023

‘∞’ (the infinity symbol) is the title of Lode Laperre's upcoming solo exhibition at Per van der Horst Gallery in Taiwan. On the one hand, this sign refers to each individual work of art that can be seen as an essential link in an almost endless series, which is ultimately referred to as an artist's "oeuvre". But it can also be seen as two intertwined loops, a line connecting two entities, alluding to a theme that has underpinned Lode Laperre's oeuvre since the late 1990s: his fascination with Eastern civilizations and their visual cultures. Ever since, he has been exploring similarities, differences and tensions between Eastern and Western visual languages and attempts to unite and integrate them.

Coinciding with the exhibition ‘∞’, a new book will be released reflecting on the theme and the works on display. The texts (in Chinese and English) for this publication were provided by Joy Lai (art director Ju Ming Museum, New Taipei City) and Rui Guerreiro (art curator, Lisbon).
