Gallery Statement

Damien & The Love Guru is a Brussels (Belgium)-based curatorial field of experimentation in contemporary art with an anthropological twist. It is currently functioning as an art gallery staging compelling and non-conventional exhibitions by emerging artists. Its mission is to activate immersion and critical approaches from interdisciplinary fields of visual art, performance and sound via independent projects and collaborations. It channels the emphasis of an art project as a way to create a tangible and inclusive environment. Their work ethic is very intuitive, but there is a great possibility that an intuitive decision is unconsciously strategic. Thus, they leave the ruling of things to the cosmic dice.
