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 here.
It’s 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 I saw, by Kevin Westenberg, was really good. Very nice portrait photography starring charismatic artists such as PJ Harvey, The White Stripes, David Lynch and Belgian Triggerfinger…
During summer, much of the activity moved to seaside Knokke. But now we are looking forward to the Marcel Van der Vlugt exposition in Antwerp!
