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

disturbed SILENCE - part 4

Els vanden Meersch - restpaviljoen - collection of the Psychiatric Centre Duffel.

Where the three previous artworks of the exhibition are open structures inviting visitors to enter and sit down, this one is different.  Made from reclaimed materials - doors, floor, showers, sinks - from a building on the site that has been demolished, the inaccessible glass structure reveals a quite recent past where privacy in psychiatric hospitals was nonexistent.

Opposite this installation, another artist copies this closed structure and turns it into an open one.

Christian Ch'An - Arkhief - collection of the Psychiatric Centre Duffel

The exhibition Disturbed Silence, brought together a number of artists and artworks that dealt with issues relating to silence and perception. The works were chosen and or commissioned with specific reference to the ongoing work within the Psychiatric Centre in Duffel.
