The exhibition ‘Out of Shape’ brings together the work of 8 artists who all draw attention to the importance of shape and form. The subject manifests itself in many different ways: There are solid triangles and squares, morphing outlines and silhouettes, peculiar figures and forms.  Forms of expectations, or the form that is expected from us . Unruly bended, turned, covered and exposed. In shape or out of shape. 

During the exhibition ‘Out of Shape’ the publication by the same name will be launched.

This publication was realized in the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee (Belgium). During a 5 week residency Polly’s Picture Show worked towards developing a publication that would combine work by 9 artists in a way that values the particularity and individuality of each work. The publication had to be more than a catalogue for a show, it had to be an art piece in itself, and that’s how it found it’s final form of a show in the shape of a box. Each artist contributed to the project by submitting one image of a work. Polly’s Picture Show then looked for the fitting print technique, color, size and paper to reproduce this work in an edition of 50. Like Duchamp’s Boîte-en-valise all works have their own existence in a box/publication which together forms the concept of a show where the works enter into a dialogue.

All the works in the publication are printed and reinterpreted by Polly’s Picture Show in Frans Masereel Centrum.
