The Quay Brothers’ first exhibition at Tommy Simoens offers a combination of drawings, graphic prints, objects and projections conceived as immaterial dioramas. These monochromatic stagings are frequently haunted by short animated film sequences that depict isolation in the form of objects and figures against the fabric of anonymous architecture: trams, pylons, tower blocks. With the title of the show the brothers invite the viewer on a night-time excursion through a series of enigmatic scenes.

On the occasion of this exhibition the brothers for the first time produced a limited edition of graphic prints. These prints are based on the Black Drawings, a suite of imaginary film posters that in hindsight appear as a kind of blueprint for their later œuvre. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a book on the Black Drawings, published by Tommy Simoens and Ludion.
