Nel Aerts at Museum M
Nel Aerts’ work is populated by often tragi- comic figures that she depicts with simple lines and large blocks of colour. They function as masks that the artist intentionally uses to reveal or precisely to conceal her own person. In The Waddle Show; a counteract, these clownesque figures become the audience of a theatrical stage on which Nel Aerts presents a new series of stacked sculptures. They form a fragile parade of objects that are suggestive of a process of risk-taking and possible failure.
