Emily Sundblad,
Charline
@ Xavier Hufkens 
— 

Enjoying a fantasy
of spinsterhood in
the arid mountains. 
A pleasurable drying
out, a comforting
silence. A body that
rests best alone. 
Friend with the most
poisonous snakes & 
spiders. Welcoming,
fearless and feminist. 
Wind whistling
through my holes.

The exhibition

Is New York-based 
artist, musician and 
gallery co-director 
Emily Sundblad's first 
solo in Brussels, for 
which her motivation 
stems from a story of 
friendship, admiration 
and sisterhood —
conceived as a tribute, 
it comprises portraits 
of the artist Charline 
von Heyl, which she 
produced in (6) sittings 
altogether in New York
and Marfa, Texas. 

A mirror that reflects 
what the two artists 
share in common...” 

The performance: 
Contains new original
songs written by 
Pete Drungle with
vocals by Sundblad.
I feel that these songs 
portray a particular 
female subject, a 
woman who has 
experienced violence 
and tragedy, but has 
found her strength 
and has no fear.
