Aeroplastics Contemporary occupies a very special place in the art gallery scene in Brussels and Belgium. The dichotomy of an unsual exhibition space is an excellent expression of the policy Jerome Jacobs is pursuing with Aeroplastics, where the spectacular often rubs shoulders with the intimate, just as eroticism – no matter how extreme – always contains a certain poetry or bizarre humour.
From the outset, the gallery has alternated between group and monographic exhibitions, with a preference for works that develop their own language and offer immediate visual accessibility. But these qualities must also form part of a broader aesthetic programme, the aim of which is to provoke a reaction – negative or positive – in the viewer.
Among the subjects dissected at Aeroplastics, the mechanisms of the world of art and its immediate surroundings occupy a important position, as do the multiple facets of the great ʻHuman Comedyʼ – sex, individual and collective violence, the transformations and limitations of corporality, the excesses of the consumer society, sociocultural stereotypes, conflict, ecology and obsessions of every kind. Another area of exploration, History – both ancient and modern – is a source of inspiration and interrogation.
