Ingrid Deuss gallery has a more daring location, far away from what is dubbed the Antwerp museum quartier at the south side of town. Ingrid has a gallery in the Provinciestraat, a long street between trendy Zurenborg and colorful Borgerhout. You will find Eastern European shops, halal stores and well known kosher bakery Kleinblatt. And for 2 years now you can find this fine gallery.
It are those neighbourhoods where art, exotic little shops and all sorts of initiatives come together that are the most interesting in a city. So I think it’s great that Ingrid picked this place for her gallery.
I think it’s a nice, open, light place and I love the floor with the old tiles. Ingrid, as much as any gallery owner I’ve talked to, speaks passionately about the work she exhibits. I love talking to people who really like what they’re doing, something I would wish for everyone.
The last exhibition by young artist Gwendolyn Keasberry was not so much my cup of tea. But I am looking forward to some upcoming events, like Armand Agresti’s work from the fifties through eighties.
