A few years back, when I fist moved to Brussels, I visited Alice Gallery for the first time. Over time, this vibrant gallery in the heart of the city has become one of my favorites (showing lots of street art and urban artists), but I often think back to the show I first saw there by the Belgian artist collective Pica Pica.
Pica Pica is made up by Boris Magotteaux (1978), Manuel Falcata (1979) and Jerome Degive (1980), all born and raised in Liege, Belgium. Their work includes installations, paintings, and drawings. And I'm a huge fan. The name Pica Pica comes from the latin name 'the talkative magpie', a bird commonly found in the wastelands around Liège and indeed, the name seems well chosen. Using common materials and shapes, Pica Pica create geometric, imperfect, yet beautiful and fascinating works.
I read somewhere that all works are produced by all three artists together. I would love to see what that looks like.
