Introduction

Born 1974 in Brussels. Works and lives in Brussels.

 

Aline Bouvy does speak about anal retention as the main disfunction of today's society; she's obviously referring to the normalisation and extended conformity within the rules that veil and forbid sex. Instead of bending to this parameters, she concentrates her work around the desire drive, creating images that emulate an anus and a mouth, the hand grabbing the penis or an archeological chance of arrangement. The main goal here is not provocation, nor mere composition, but the continuous flow of the liquid-saliva-style that is the very consistent language of Bouvy. Her last solo exhibitions include NICC (BE) and EAP Vénissieux (FR). Her work has been exhibited at Le Confort Moderne (FR), IMT Gallery (UK), Parallel / Oaxaca (MX) and Island (BE).
