Must-Visit Exhibition in Antwerp: Guy Leclef’s ‘Poetic Recycling’

Guy Leclef, known for his work with paper materials, is bringing a solo exhibition to his hometown Antwerp. Already having successful and still ongoing exhibitions in countries like France, Canada, and The United States, the paper-cutter-folder mogul is keeping it local this time. The exhibition starts off as a solo exposition with Leclef’s work exclusively and will later be accompanied by other artists.

His work can be described as Poetic Recycling where all the artwork consists of folded, cut, and pasted paper of books, magazines, and everything in between. Scrambled words, images, and lines all come together in a cohesive art piece, ready for the next story.

Most of Guy’s work follows that paper trail, but in 2009 he shortly switched to leather, as in “chopping up a gorgeous leather bag”. Belgian luxury brand Delvaux collaborated with Guy for their Studio Delvaux, naming their project with him Paperworld meets Delvaux. For this exhibition, Guy cut up Delvaux’s famous Brillant bag.
Later, in 2015, he published his first book Paperworld, which takes you behind the scenes of all things Guy Leclef.

Exhibition ‘Poetic Recycling’ will run from 1 April until 18 April at Schutterhofstraat 55, Antwerp. For more information, visit Forwart’s website.
