Description

WIELS shows one of the crucial artists from the post-war years of protest and revolt: : Jacqueline de Jong.

Jacqueline de Jong is a key figure of the avant- garde especially among the Situationist International group, radical critics of the consumer society. Playfully moving between styles and painterly idioms throughout her career, the artist displays a voracious interest in the painted image as a site for confusion and subversion. Her tone can lean towards the absurd and enigmatic, but always with a desire for figuration and physical presence, often collageing narrative, realistic fragments. In its spontaneity, de Jong’s excessive, expressive yet realistic style, her work exhibits uninhibited eroticism and sexual liberation.
