Dépendance Gallery opens the season with Thomas Bayrle’s retrospective exhibition. Two exhibition spaces of the renewed Dépendance venue mirror two periods in the artist’s practice – the left gallery with works from 1990s, and the right one with new paintings.

The German artist draws his motives and themes from the consumer society and world of goods, and presents engagement with advertising and comparisons between mass iconography and systems in both East and West. Bayrle avails himself of a variety of techniques from drawing, collage, serigraphy and painted paper to accumulation of objects. His works, which play with Pop aesthetics, are critical of consumer society and political indoctrination.

Brussels Art Days 11–13 September 2015. The retrospective exhibition will run until 17 October 2015.
