THE IDEAL MUSEUM

The Ideal Museum is a piece created throughout 2019 by one of the leading artists of the Créahm workshops, Alain Meert, in preparation for the opening of the Trinkhall. The artist answered our question - What is a museum? - with a galleon in full sail, which casually displays drawings, paintings and sculptures. It is a scene of paper, cardboard, objects, multiple unusual and familiar presences, lodged precisely between states of consciousness. The whole world that fits into a boat: Alain Meert's ark. And it is a museum, just as we want it to be, dreamily navigating among ideas, shapes and emotions. Ship Lieutenant Alain Meert is a pirate. So, let’s all climb aboard with a heave ho!

The Event of Being There

The Event of Being There

“A place has nothing to do with a territory. It is a space that we hold onto. Furthermore, it is not a space in the usual sense of the word, but it has a multi-dimensional surface on which we cannot fix our eyes nor our skin. Something that does not really exist outside of us – and yet it does! – meaning it does not exist outside of the relationship we have with it; something that we move towards and, which, at the same time, moves towards us in a precise symmetrical way. Or rather something that sends us back towards the condition of our existence, stripped of the painful feeling of being oneself and, by the ways that places operate, allowing us a free and more open existence without the burden of oneself. A place is the event of being there. It neither belongs to you, me nor anyone. We do not possess any places: Sometimes we are lucky enough that they come to us!”

The Des lieux pour exister exhibition brings together around thirty artists from the collection. They come from all over the world - Belgium, Italy, the United States, England, Australia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany – and openly converse with the accompanying work of Bob Verschueren, Anne De Gelas and Maurice Pirenne.

We look forward to seeing you in our Museum.
