Weg van Vlaanderen (Swept Away by Flanders. Contemporary Flemish Landscapes)
The exhibition Weg van Vlaanderen (Swept Away by Flanders. Contemporary Flemish Landscapes) has been conceived as a walk through the strongly fragmented Flemish landscape. Artists from various disciplines, each with his or her own particular temperament, portray in their own way the end of the lyrical Flemish landscape. The names of the various exhibition spaces speak for themselves: Disaster Area Flanders, Non-Place Flanders, The Inaccessible Landscape,...
In 1968 Renaat Braem called Flanders “the ugliest country in the world”; the artists at this exhibition show precisely what Braem meant, but they also show the charm of “the suburb Flanders”. Curator Jeroen Laureyns want the visitor to re-experience the drama of the loss of the natural landscape in Flanders.
