Damien & The Love Guru is a Brussels-based curatorial field of experimentation in contemporary art with an anthropological twist. It is currently functioning as an art gallery staging compelling and non-conventional exhibitions by emerging artists. Our mission is to activate immersions in and critical approaches to the cross-disciplinary fields of visual art, performance and sound via independent projects and collaborations.
At Damien & The Love Guru we channel the emphasis of an art project as a way to create an inclusive and tangible environment. Damien & The Love Guru was founded in 2014 as a nomadic project space focussing on upcoming artists. Since June 2016 the gallery has been operating from its current location in Brussels and joined forces with international artists such as Magnus Andersen (DK), Lucy Stein (UK), George Rippon (USA), Vanessa Disler (CA), Charlott Weise (DE), Charlie Billingham (UK), Tiziana La Melia (CA), Lauren Halsey (US), Rebecca Ackroyd (UK), Vanessa Da Silva (BR), Than Hussein Clark (USA), amongst others. All of the previous exhibitions have been quite synergetic and the gallery will continue this initial approach.The conceptual thread that runs through the practice of the represented artists or collaborations with other artists, is the interdisciplinary method of composing their own spheres. The work ethos of Damien & The Love Guru can be described as very intuitive, but there is a big chance that an intuitive decision is subconsciously strategical. So we let the cosmic dice rule for us.
