Solo exhibition

'Hurry up and wait' Antwerp

24th of October 2020 until January 31st 2021

Gert Voorjans, Leopoldplaats 11, 2000 Antwerpen

Artist Tom Barman (°1972, BE), known as a musician (dEUS, Taxiwars) and film director (Any way the wind blows), proves to be a gifted photographer as well. On tour he started experimenting with his camera during dead moments waiting for his next performance. Photography turned out to be a perfect way of exploring a city and creating at the same time. ‘Everything else I do is so time-consuming and involves many people. Photography is fast and straightforward. It offers me instant gratification for a change’. This entanglement of speed and directness is reflected in the title of his book and exhibition: Hurry up and wait. Barman creates intuitively and depicts whatever catches his eye, be it candyfloss, a detail of a scratch or his own shadow. The seductive images give us a glimpse of his personal story. Barman surrenders to his subconscious mind when he is shooting his succulently coloured, eclectic world.
