Art Brussels 2024

Venue: Brussels Expo, Halls 5 & 6, Place de la Belgique 1, 1020 Brussels
Date: Apr 25 – 28, 2024

acb Gallery | Discovery section, booth 6D-32

For the Discovery section of Art Brussels, acb Gallery proposes a duo presentation focusing on the work of Andrea Éva Győri (1983-2022) and Selma Selman (b.1991). Both artists’ practices are characterized by a bold, outspoken yet sensitive approach to their own status, that of women who challenge societal frames, who decline stereotypical female roles, and struggle for their body and mind to be sovereign lands. As both the formulation, the cathartic channeling, and the strategic visualization of anxiety, fear, illness, physical pain, and despair, the – occasionally performative – drawings and paintings of Andrea Éva Győri and Selma Selman explore the artists’ conflictual relation to womanhood, to the expectations surrounding their femininity and to their respective bodies. It is by transforming these very bodies that they succeed in freeing themselves from coercive societal stereotypes, constructing a new identity, and ultimately focusing on their artistic selves. The works selected for this presentation convey a clear transformative power that acts as a visual strategy used by the artists to protect, heal, and soothe their bodies and psyche.

Andrea Éva Győri is represented by acb Gallery (Budapest, HU), Harlan Levey Projects (Brussels, BE), and Thomas Erben Gallery (New York, USA).

Selma Selman is represented by acb Gallery.
