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

Thierry De Cordier's silent chapel

disturbed SILENCE - STILTE gestoord

Another permanent artwork on the site of the Psychiatric Centre.

Thierry De Cordier (BE) - Kapel van het Niets (2007)

An immaculate white wall stands in a structure that shows signs of time passing.  A silent space to visit and experience moments of self-reflection (during the exhibition the chapel has many visitors, otherwise it will be a haven of silence and solitude).
The 'keywork' of the exhibition 'disturbed SILENCE'

Will the last person leaving the building switch off the light?

I found a stunning picture taken at the perfect time of the day HERE
I was less fortunate, the weather was cloudy and there were too many visitors to make decent pictures.

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.
