A study of two exhibitions that took place five years apart in the same building in Brussels city-centre

Full House explores two exhibitions that took place five years apart in the same building in Brussels and featured over 300 contemporary art works from the renowned collection of Frédéric de Goldschmidt.
The first show, Not Really Really, was organized in 2016 in a building that had only been vacated a few months before by a mental health clinic. The works were mostly sculptures made with everyday objects and played with the ambiguity of what the last occupants could have left and what the artists purposefully created.
The building then underwent a long renovation, with photos included illustrating this process. The second show, Inaspettatamente (Unexpectedly), then engaged with themes such as order and disorder, time, classification, the artist’s process or his/her position in world conflicts using the prism of the famous Arte Povera artist Alighiero Boetti.
 Curatorial texts and images of the works both in context and in studio allow the reader to discover and appreciate both exhibitions.

Frédéric de Goldschmidt is a French art collector based in Brussels.
