Benoît Platéus | Scissors, hangers and other batteries
November 21 – December 22, 2019
Opening reception: Thursday November 22, 6-8pm
102 Forsyth Street, New York, NY 10002


signs and symbolsis pleased to present Scissors, hangers and other batteries, a solo exhibition by Belgian artist Benoît Platéus. For this exhibition, Platéuscontinues his process of “frottage,” whereby the artist takes objects found in the streets of New York or from his studio in Brussels and rubs them onto paper which is then glued onto a wood panel and painted upon.

Benoît Platéus was born in 1972 in Liège, Belgium and currently lives and works in Brussels. In his work he investigates and plays with the spaces and relationships between mediums, exploring abstraction in form and content. His work has been exhibited at Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Mu.ZEE, Ostend;Karma, New York; Almine Rech, London; Galerie Albert Baronian, Brussels; Annarumma Gallery, Naples; and Galerie Jeanroch Dard, Paris, among others. He is included in several museum collections around the world, including the Fond National d’Art Contemporain, France and the Musée d’Ixelles, Belgium. Most recently (2019) he has had his first museum retrospective at the WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, which was accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog and later traveled to Bonner Kunstverein in Germany.

She won the César Award for Most Promising Actress at 14 years old for her performance in L’effrontée, and has been a consistently brilliant presence in cinema on both sides of the Atlantic since.
