La Loge, set in a former Masonic lodge, presents a group show inspired by the historical artistic figure Akarova: a dancer, choreographer and public figure who was active in Brussels between the interwar years. The invited artists, including Anne Hardy, Hanne Lippard, Caroline Mesquita and others, are showing a number of works responding to the body, the voice and dance, beside works of Akarova that are also on view. Caroline Mesquita, known for her tactile sculptural practice in bronze and other metals, is showing a work in which two oversize metal hand-like pieces show interwoven fingers, like hands frozen in expression. The show attempts to look at the merging of art and life in interdisciplinary practices, for which Akarova’s dance is both medium and metaphor.
