About this event
For Un-Scene II, Brussels-based Norwegian artist Steinar Haga Kristensen has developed an installation in the form of a domestic pavilion within and around which he gathers many of his works whether old, altered or new. Among these is Pissing Man and Pissing Woman, which he first painted in 1999, then painted over in 2001, when he started art school, and which, in 2009, he tried to restore to its youthful original, to no avail. The painting will be restored by professional at WIELS over the course of the show as an ongoing performance directed by the artist and available at punctual moments for viewers to see.
Performed with the aid of Claire Dupuy, professional in conservation and restoration of artworks, specialised in paintings.
