Sound artist Paul Devens has created a new artwork in the Church of Saint Servatius in Groot-Loon. Proximity Effect is a sound installation tailor-made for the beautiful church, parts of which date from the 12th century. Using speakers and sensors, the visitor is absorbed in an interplay of tones, sounds of outside recordings, acoustics, echo and space.
In the landscape around the Abbey of Colen in Kerniel. The round construction with a stunning 360° view is delineated by uniform vertical wooden slats. Entering the artwork is a special experience that refers to the religious and is reminiscent of walking around an abbey. According to the artist, Aeneas Wilder, his work functions as a lens through which the visitor can focus his or her thoughts and emotions against the backdrop of the landscape around Kerniel.
Reading between the Lines
The duo of architects Gijs Van Vaerenbergh created a see-through church in Borgloon. Reading between the Lines is 10 metres high and consist of 100 stacked layers of steel plate shaped like a little Loon church. The construction weighs no less than 30 tons. The special way in which the church was constructed ensures that the landscape always remains visible when looking through the church, but from a distance and close up. The church is thus present in the landscape, but also absent.
Memento is a sculpture in the Central Graveyard in Borgloon. The artwork by Wesley Meuris is an anchor in the rolling landscape and invites visitors to enter. The architectural structure of the work ensures a special experience of looking and wandering. The steel-constructed space can be interpreted in various ways and challenges one’s imagination. Whoever visits the space experiences its intimacy. This reflects the memory of its surroundings.
In the landscape, beside the lane heading to the castle of Hex, you will find four tree tents where you can spend the night. The tear-shaped sculptures hang from high trees and provide an alternative form of accommodation to spend the night in Haspengouw. The work of Dré Wapenaar (°1961, the Netherlands) is always situated at the intersection of architecture and sculpture, between a stay and an encounter. His sculptures are primarily tent constructions that are installed temporarily. They invite visitors to occupy them, to stay in them or to shelter beneath them. The social interaction around the work is of great importance to the artist.
In Borgloon, Fred Eerdekens (BE) is exhibiting a folded line in the landscape. Along the Romeinse Kassei, you will find a wood-like sculpture in which you can read the word ‘twijfelgrens’ (doubtful border), but only when you look at it from exactly the right position. Fred Eerdekens often uses language as a medium for his artworks. At the same time, his work is a reflection on how language works. For Twijfelgrens, you must assume the right position to be able to read the “hidden” word and to acquire insight.
