After having taken over Antwerp’s reputed M HKA last year with a solo show, Belgian artist Marlies De Clerck now leaves the museum walls behind, bringing her art directly to the people and into the streets.

Her works often isolate and reinterpret the everyday with a dash of Belgian humor while investigating the tradition of painting itself, and have been exhibited at Etablissement d’en Face, KIOSK, Museum Dhondt Dhaenens, and others.

In the context of the government initiative #StaycationBrussels which aims at pimping up these largely travel-free pandemic times, the Brussels-based artist created the “Sea City” series, seven oil paintings that have been invading the Belgian capital as digital prints on billboards and columns evoking a breezy seaside ambience.

At the same time, art enthusiasts can get their hands on the prints in A2 format for free at seven different cultural locations (Adam, Fondation CAB, iMAL, MIMA, Muntpunt, Art & History Museum and Villa Empain) to inject a bit of holiday feeling within their own walls.
