Genesis of the Thiphasé project
Triphasé is a space supporting emerging artists’ research with an eye on the future. The project was born in a 900m2 industrial building in Anderlecht, on the outskirts of downtown Brussels, in 2021. Antoinette d´Ansembourg and Alice Pandolfo first founded the Ateliers Triphasé and invited ten visual artists per year to occupy them. The Espace Triphasé, an exhibition space and experimentation hub, was inaugurated six months later with the group exhibition "Please Talk Louder". Triphasé is a project overflowing with energy, allowing artists to expand their practice free of constraints while promoting an exchange with the public.
The Triphasé Studio community
The Studios form a community where a familial, fertile atmosphere reigns. Since April 2021, they have welcomed ten artists independently practicing painting, installation, ceramics, textiles, sculpture and design. Its current residents are Abel Jallais, Alice Pandolfo, Amat Gueye, Antoine Carbonne, Antoinette d´Ansembourg, the Frizbee Ceramics duo, Harold Lechien, Honorine Pardon, Jonas Moënne, Naoki Karathanassis, Nicolas Zanoni and Zoé Van den Boogaerde. This collection of heterogeneous artists forms a stimulating group breeding an atmosphere of collaboration, discussion and sharing.
The Triphasé Space, an eventful exhibition space
The Triphasé Space is a 170m2 area where exhibitions and other cultural events are held. Rich in cinematographic history, it is the ideal environment for bringing additional dimensions to artists’ creative ambitions while opening a dialogue with the world beyond.
The space has the particularity of being located at the foot of the studios, allowing the public not only to see the exhibitions but to meet and share a moment with the artists in the intimacy of their studios.
A dual program is developed at Triphasé: firstly, a series of in-house exhibitions bring together the works of resident artists around a collective proposal. Secondly, Triphasé selects and invites both young artists and external curators to take over the exhibition space in order to develop projects. During these events, the Studios open up for a weekend to promote meetings and exchanges.
Vision and objectives
This program offers an opportunity for artists to show their work in a different setting from galleries, a chance to explore and pursue their research in a unique space with different
constraints. Triphasé is committed to promoting young artists’ work, and remunerates both research and the realization of ideas participating in the space’s development.
The space was inaugurated in October 2021 with the group exhibition "Please Talk Louder", a living, evolving installation comprised of a banquet table traversing the space, with artists’ interventions above, below and beside it. The installation was brought to life with a dinner, a project from the Frizbee Ceramics duo in collaboration with Jean Fonsny, chef at the Brussels-based Dindins Club.
The 2022 program is out, and the team is looking forward to sharing it. The first exhibition is curated by Antoine Carbonne, the second conceived by Harold Lechien, Gabriel Rene-Franjou and Elliot Kervyn and the third produced in collaboration by Maria Vaiedelich and Nicolas Stolarczyk. The space will host two open days, in April and September.
Psst Mlle collective will organize an event in May.
Triphasé is a place allowing artists to meld their theories, intelligence, opinions, determinations; it’s about moving forward together, freely, through a common force.
