IT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE | BRUSSELS GALLERY WEEKEND 2020
It is not a coincidence
That you are right here, right now
All you see, touch, smell, taste
makes complete sense.
Complete sense births feeling.
Feeling brings awareness.
Awareness allows presence.
Presence inspires connection.
In this here,
the dance between chance and synchronicity
In this now,
sound has no origin
and space flows beyond time.
The veil between observer, artist, and performer is lifted.
You are a part of everything.
everything is a part of you.
Zaza has spent 2019 / 2020 working in a newly found studio in Brussels,
in Sainte Cathrine square. An old ware house has been transformed by himself
into a vibrant space of artistic exchange with other Brussels based artists,
and a place of reconsideration of his practice as a painter.
His work has expanded from two dimensional canvas into spacious installations,
which included objects constructed out of found materials and bare elements
of an atelier, revealing the work space for the guests, both the artists and his audience.
It Is Not a Coincidence, a show hosted as a special event of Brussels Gallery Weekend 2020, presented his works
from last years, painted in experienced proximities and distances to his original environments of the Middle East.
The show with strongly symbolical depictions from the artist’s imagery entered interacted with a musical
performance of a well known Brussels based perimental music group, The Echo Collective.
Zaza’s space has been since then traced by live camera surveillance system, as a curatorial proposition of registering
the happening of the space. It also highlighted a declared future of the building, which soon is going to become
a space rented out to one of the big supermarket networks.
