Artist Boris Tellegen a.k.a. Delta (1968) started out in the graffiti scene, and eventually evolved as a contemporary artist, albeit one who remained very much in touch with youth culture. The Dutchman returns to Brussels for a band new showcase at Alice gallery to present a new body of work. Entitled Super User Access, it’s the artist’s fifth exhibition at the gallery, and presents art works inspired by the coding he learned in his youth in order to play the first generation of computer games. Mind you, coding was the one thing he was into before he indulged in graffiti, and obviously has remained a source of inspiration. As said, the show presents new works, three series to be precise: the cardboard Code series which plays with computer command words, the so-called Glitch series of monochromes of wood composed of a multitude of layers of dynamic forms, and which represent electronic failures, and last nut not least, a number of totemic sculptures of bronze and steel which combine lettering and references to the aesthetics of science fiction (on through Mar 23). Location: Alice, Land van Luikstraat 4 (Central Brussels).
