Gallery Sofie Van de Velde and Plus-One Gallery present ‘L’Heure Bleue’. ‘L’heure bleue’ is the moment when the sun has set, but night has not fallen yet. This phenomenon happens right before sunrise or after sunset when the light turns everything blue. This twilight moment only lasts a few moments, but it’s a pivotal moment that shivers with suspense.
This collaborative presentation alludes to the idea of melancholy. The ‘blue hour’ embraces metamorphosis in the almost-night. The exhibition also seeks to glance at the future. Melancholy is a reflective state, in which we feel sadness due to loss, but also a desire to fix it. If we could stop and examine this moment, what then are our challenges of today?
