to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Hans Op De Beeck - poetic surprise

COUP DE VILLE - part 5

Contemporary art in private houses, gardens, museums and public space.
More than 40 international artists on more than 25 locations.

An abandoned schoolhouse.  A long and pitch dark corridor, at the end we feel we enter a large space we can't see because of the darkness.  One light illuminates a large wooden 'box' in the center.

OK ... is that it?   Oh, there is an entrance ... hard to find in the dark.  Hey, what a surprise ...

A space that looks feels a secret garden in the moonlight.  A bench to sit on and experience the silence and the quiet and somehow peaceful loneliness.  It really works.  One of my favorites.

Herinner je nog "Chambres d'amis" door Jan Hoet?

Deze Coup de Ville is hier min of meer een verwijzing naar, de curator is hier ook Jan Hoet.
Ben er zelf in de tijd niet geraakt ... doodjammer.
