Center and Periphery, a solo exhibition by Sam Eggermont.
‘Where do we stand?’ is an important question for Eggermont, but the question ‘how did we end up here?’ is possibly even more important. In his contemporary, strongly socially-motivated artistic practice he doesn’t so much occupy the narrow space of the ‘here and now’ as he makes leaps and bounds (‘migrations’, if you like) to other times and places, bringing the far-away near and transforming the near to something intangible, an ever-shifting collection of fragmentary influences and histories.
