The WCC•BF is a professional association valuing the crafts sector.
It associates closely with the WCC•Europe within the global structure of the World Crafts Council, a non-governmental organisation recognised by UNESCO. Set up by and for the regions of Wallonia and Brussels, and located at the Anciens Abattoirs of Mons (the former slaughterhouse of this city), the WCC•BF’s gallery is a showcase for Belgian makers working in ceramics, glass, contemporary jewellery, fashion, paper, wood, textile, design-led crafts and more.
At first glance Philippe Brodzki’s sculptures seem express an anachronistic beauty. Actually they are more provocative than outdated. Detached from the current aesthetic codes and trends, they pose the creative act as an act of freedom. Finely sculpted, polished and patinated with mastery, adorned with strange headdresses that maliciously deflect the artist’s purpose, these realistic but unreal characters evoke, in the depths of our imaginations, improbable mythologic figures rising to the surface of time. The work offers an aesthetic shift as Brodzki underlines the importance of a classical beauty, de-codified and unreal.
WCC-BF Gallery has kindly donated work to the Crafts Council Benefit Auction.
