This show has been thoughtfully installed in the gallery spaces, enclosed by the high, dark painted walls and precisely lit with framed spots. For the most part the works are small, meticulously painted gems, glowing with a pallid vitality and full of a ritual energy. The common characters, capering, poised figures, engaged in baffling acts, are robed and hooded in black. The faces, obscured by something a cross between a bishops mitre and a clansmen's hood, remain unknown, even the eyes are hidden. These elements invoke an alien social anthropology replete with arcane practices and pan-religious overtones. There is an echo of the purposeful yet cryptic scenarios seen in the works of Marcel Dzama here but shorn entirely of Dzarma's folkloric narratives. Borreman's genius is to propose scenes we feel compelled to complete. As we can only complete them by fusing our own thoughts with those he provides, we are guaranteed an intimate co-authorship. The works belong, in part, to our imaginings, to the uneasy ambiguities the artist introduces in us and to the the ever changing now into which they move along with their viewers. Until August the 14th.
