Aeromatic Art Project 1, 1983

Hugo Roelandt (BE)

From Bruegel to Leonardo to Panamarenko. Flying is a popular theme in art. But art never really flies: line, structure and form are all suggestive of flying. In Aeromatic Art Project the roles are reversed: model helicopters make simple move- ments in the air before returning to their plinths, their helipads. Hugo Roelandt’s (1950-2015) 1983 performance is about humanity’s age-old dream to fly. The artist’s visual work was recently showcased in a double exhibition. Playground is focusing on the artist’s live action work.
