In addition to the exhibition of the collection and the new sociological banners, the Atelier34zero Muzeum is also devoting a presentation to the work of the Belgian sculptor Jacques Talmar (1927-1997). Born in Brussels, Talmar was a prolific sculptor, working in bronze, terracotta, plaster and lead.

Innovative in his treatment of the human body, the curves of his creations can echo the works of Nikki de Saint-Phalle, Fernando Botero or Aristide Maillol. By emphasizing the opulence and roundness of the human body, Talmar admits in his work a play of passing curves and counter-curves, with a rare sense of volume. These obese bodies are the result of a satirical - even ironic - approach to the subject; the sculptor also likes to have fun with the French language, as shown by one of his sculptures entitled "Les trois grasses".

In addition to his career as an artist, Jacques Talmar was also a teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode for 36 years. With this exhibition, we aim to highlight the work of a prolific local sculptor who passed on his passion and shaped several generations of sculptors.

Exhibition visible from 17/07/2021 to 13/03/2022
