Panoptès is an art collection and gallery dedicated to perceptual and experiential practices.
Private Gallery, 1180 Brussel, Belgium
Scope of work
Lighting Integration : Inytium
Founded by Emilie De Pauw in 2015, it is dedicated to commissioning, presenting and curating artworks that investigate materiality, abstraction and perception.
Often contingent on their environment and the position of the viewer, these works require active participation and involve unconventional, intangible, sometimes playful mediums - such as light, space, sound or technology.
The collection includes pieces from movements such as geometric abstraction, light and space, neo-concrete and op art, among others. Through them, Panoptès seeks the confrontation of different periods, illustrating the influence that primitive abstraction had on the radical practices that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as their impact on the art of today. Panoptès is located in Brussels and includes works by Josef Albers, Larry Bell, Lygia Clark, Kaori Fukuyama, Robert Irwin, Veronica Janssens, Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt, Serge Poliakoff, Jesús Rafael Soto and James Turrell.
