  • Beschreibung: The title ?Salon des réfugiés? refers both to the historic Salon des refusés (1863) in Paris and to the current refugee problem in Europe. Salon des refusés (1863) exhibited paintings and sculptures who were not admitted to the official salons. The rejected artworks were stamped with the letter "R" (Refusé). De Wolf encounters and interacts with refugees from asylum centers in in socially engaged artistic projects were she created a base to explore the boundaries of art and society. From an anthropological perspective, the white in many different cultures and religions refers to sacred moments in life. In addition to this the white draped fabric also refers to Hellenistic statues in the Louvre museum. Salon des réfugiés 2016, Salon des refusés 1863 contains work that was created in Paris during the summer of 2015.

For the continuation of the project Salon des réfugiés textures, as used in the original installation are woven in a prior process and embroidered by a diverse group of refugees. The patterns, lines and stamp ? R ? are incorporated in the weaving according to codes determined from the dialogue between artist and refugees.00Exhibition: MHKA, Antwerp, Belgium (07.01.-21.02.2016)
