18.01 > 03.03.2019 | MADY ANDRIEN     

Mady Andrien (born in Engis, in 1941) is a fully-fledged sculptor. His favourite materials are earth as well as bronze and steel, for works integrated in the public space. 

Mady Andrien favours the human figure: bathers, children, rowers, passers-by or prince-bishops, historical witnesses of the city's past. She studies her subjects with attention and precision, digs deep for attitudes, expressions in the subject. Sometimes her groups of characters form a mass of matter that must be approached to distinguish the expressive faces. Their raw appearance, barely outlined, often gives her characters an inner dynamism, even as their pursuit or movement is captured on the spot.

The exhibition is organized in the form of a thematic retrospective, around seventy sculptures, in earth or metal, enriched with some collages and charcoals, presenting more than fifty years of creation.
