Capucine Vandebrouck

About

„In 1967, Robert Morris achieves in the Western Washington University an iconic work called Steam Cloud, a simple cloud of smoke emerging from the ground. At the time the American artist designs this work, it is a question of thinking about a work as a random shape, shifting and impermanent. He will talk about anti-form in a text published in 1968, in conflict with the canons of minimalism dominating the American artistic scene. From there you could pull the many strings of a star shaped artistic genealogy, where entropy, chance, fundamental ambiguity, immateriality, disappearances and decoy effects would be mixed together. It is in this frame that the work of Capucine Vandebrouck would be inserted, somewhere between the Dust Breeding of Duchamps and the „scribbles“ of Sol le Witt, between the proponents of arte povera and the Asphalt Rundown of Smithson, between the bitter elegance of Eva Hesse and the visual alchemies of Ann Veronica Janssens or Edith Dekyndt. (…) It is maybe this oscillation between belief and rational explanation of the world, that crosses the work of Capucine Vandebrouck. She doesn´t propose us to believe in what we see, but she doesn´t subscribe to minimalist doxa of the „what you see is what you see“ neither. The artist suggests rather that what can be seen is as much important as what can´t, what we know as intense as what isn´t told.“ Text: Marie Cozette, Rome, January 2017
