Near the Mechelen Square you will find St George's Church. Its history dates back to the 13th century. The then chapel grew into a parish church that would be destroyed and rebuilt over time. The current neo-Gothic church building dates from the 19th century. The interaction between the vertical architecture and the horizontal lines of the mural makes the church a very balanced "gesamtkunstwerk". However, St George's also wants to support contemporary artists and is therefore happy to open its doors to To Be Antwerp.
An ear, earth, the living moss, “hou-vast” cast in plaster, a well, ashes, salt, outside and inside. I explore procedures of caring and states of aliveness. My pursuit to understand how we connect to nature, the people we love, and the things we hold dear, aims for a sense of empathy in understanding our existence.

My paintings draw on mythology, dreams, and folklore, exploring the mysteries of the world.
Working primarily with oil paint on loose canvases which I lay flat on the ground, I consider my paintings to be made in an organic manner.

Twee ronddwalende figuren lijken een zwaar element te dragen. Doormiddel van hun schaduw en belichte lichaam lijken ze wel betrapt tijdens hun nachtelijke wandeling. Verder zit het werk vol verborgen elementen die goed aansluiten met de locatie “kerk" waarin het werk is gepresenteerd.
