About this work

This lithograph was produced on the occasion of the exhibition “Le Tableau des Eléments”, held at the Museum of Contemporary Arts- MAC’s Grand-Hornu in 2005. Framing, symmetry, perspective, and polarity are all aspects of Peter Downsbrough’s  diverse  practice: here he uses the straight lines of a square, whose corner is superimposed on the word OPTION, inverted as if to suggest many possible readings, so that our perception and location of space are modified.

About this artist


The MAC’s is housed within the former Grand-Hornu colliery, a monument of European industrial heritage that was designated as UNESCO world heritage in 2012. Since the museum opened in 2002, it has welcomed over a million visitors, produced more than 85 exhibitions and promoted numerous artists from the region. Thanks to such major international artists as Anish Kapoor, Christian Boltanski, Guiseppe Penone and Tony Oursler, who presented their first major Belgian exhibitions here, the reputation of the MAC’s now extends well beyond Belgium’s borders. Drawing inspiration from the unique architecture and history of the Grand-Hornu site, its collection explores themes that have caught the attention of numerous contemporary artists, including memory, technology and community. Every day, the MAC’s offers free guided visits to its exhibitions. The entry ticket also provides access to the historic site of the former colliery and the design exhibitions organized by the CID, the Centre for Innovation and Design.
