Founded in 1998, Aeroplastics is one of the most atypical of Belgian galleries.
Based in Brussels, it represents and actively supports artists coming from all over the world, and with an approach that is resolutely multidisciplinary. Its artistic line, mixing established names and younger artists of promise, favours inquiries that speak to the major issues facing today’s society and the role that the contemporary image can play there. Over the course of the years, Aeroplastics' director Jerome Jacobs has organized dozens of individual and group exhibitions.
Originally situated in a stately urban hôtel de maître, the gallery occupied a former seminar built in the 1960s and a Modernist house on Roosevelt, Brussels. This nomadic bent reflects Aeroplastics' desire to change the ‘traditional’ model of the art gallery, thereby providing a continual renewal of interest for these themes and works on the part of both general public and collectors alike.
Between August 2021 and May 2022, Aeroplastics settled in a former car dealership in uptown Brussels. This atmosphere gave the gallery an opportunity to reaffirm the aesthetic line followed since its beginnings, characterised by a taste for audacity and experimentation, diversity, the hidden meaning of images and words, but also humour and the second degree.
