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

landscapes inside/outside

"The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way..."

"...and then dipped suddenly down..."

"Alice opened the door and found that it lead into a small passage..."

Petra Paesmans - Stoelendans - 2011 - Sousvoir Hoegaarden


another detail...  dozens of small floating 'ships'... so tiny that one can't detect them entering the space.  Wonderfull small worlds.

Dimitri Vangrunderbeek's double units

We can't complain about summer... we already had fantastic weather during spring.  But the last weeks are cloudy and grey, we need a dash of colour!  And Dimitri Vangrunderbeek provides it.

The domain of the Château de Seneffe is open to the public and this summer it welcomes the exhibition CABANES - cabins.

The most colourful structures are the "Dubbele Units" - double units - by Dimitri Vangrunderbeek.

Radiating with vibrant colours.

I'd love to see these when the sun is shining.

The shadowplay would certainly add another dimension.

Dimitri Vangrunderbeek - Dubbele Units

CABANES - cabins

open air exhibition until 13 November 2011
Domaine du Château de Seneffe - Belgium
the exhibition in the garden and park is free

1997 in the Forest

The six villages of the Wind in the Forest - Le Vent des Forêts - invited the first artists in 1997. Some of these works have dissolved into nature, others still remain.  These pictures were taken September 2010.

Klaus Heid (DE) - Utopia - 1997 - Le Vent des Forêts - #2

Maciej Albrzykowski (PO) - "Par Erreur... (by mistake) - 1997 - Le Vent des Forêts - #1

Marek Borsányi (CZ) - Gardien - 1997 - Le Vent des Forêts - #15

Some of the originial sculpted poles were recently replaced by other ones.  The artist lives in the region, so I guess he looks after his installation and keeps it in good condition.

Nicolas Chenard (FR) - L'oeil du Cyclope - 1997 - Le Vent des Forêts - #16

#4, 11, 12 and 13 from the same year are still in place, I've blogged them in previous posts.

Wind in the Forest

In July, six villages in the forest - in the Meuse region (France) - invite international artists to take a different look at nature and create works displayed along a 45- kilometre footpath through 5.000 hectares of forest.
