A Life in a Day

31 August - 7 October, 2023

Tim Van Laere Gallery presents A Life in A Day, Rinus Van de Velde's seventh solo exhibition at the gallery. In this exhibition, the artist not only presents new drawings in oil pastel, colored pencil, and charcoal but also premieres his third film, A Life in A Day, of which he also shows a selection of sculptures that are part of the film.


Rinus Van de Velde's oeuvre reads like a multiverse, in which different storylines always run parallel to one another. He has already created several alter egos that allow him to appropriate different personas and explore worlds that do not (yet) belong to him. The anchor point between all these worlds is always the artist himself, who through a path of impersonations, constructed lies, and appropriations comes closer and closer to the truth about his own person and his artistry. 

Rinus Van de Velde (b. 1983 in Leuven, Belgium) lives and works in Antwerp. Work by the artist is in several international collections, including S.M.A.K. (Ghent), M HKA (Antwerp), Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium (Brussels), CAC (Malaga), Kunstmuseum Luzern (Lucerne), FRAC des Pays De La Loire (Nantes), Museum Voorlinden (Wassenaar), Kunstmuseum (The Hague), AZ Artgestion Collection (Bilbao), Kunsthalle Sao Paolo (Sao Paolo), KWM Art Center (Shangai), KPN Art Collection (Netherlands), Stad Antwerpen (Antwerp), Erasmus University (Rotterdam), Belfius Art Collection (Brussels) and Colleccion Solo (Madrid).
