Dennis Tyfus (Antwerp, 1979) is simultaneously an outcast and a unifying factor in the Antwerp art scene. He uses the record label as a vehicle for all sorts of collaborations with a range of artists and musicians, which causes uncertainty when it comes to position his work for both the art world professionals as for the wider audience. His work that might rather be described as a form of being than as separate artworks often hovers in the grey area between arts, city life and popular culture.
The solo exhibition of Dennis Tyfus at 1646 consisted of a temporary take over by ‘De Nor’ (the clink) in 1646: one of the legendary spaces that Dennis Tyfus runs, he is the only one with a key, a place where many of his activities come together, where music is made, paintings and drawings are shown and people dance. De Nor is a travelling bar, visiting several cities starting in The Hague, before it will be permanently installed in Middelheim next year.”
