Antwerp in Belgium is amazing. So nice to be back here and be able to enjoy as last time I was working like crazy that didn’t even notice how pretty this city is. I really love Belgium. #keeptraveling#travel#crewlife#belgium#antwerp
The 3 wall-mounted Arabian Nights sculptures are an impressive representation of a no longer typically magical Arabian city. The ruins at the base and the starry sky above which was replaced by a satellite and airplane studded sky, represent a culturally updated view of the Arabic city. The ceramic work is cut up in the shape of an old stained-glass window, using the aforementioned juxtaposition in telling a contemporary story about a specific religious/political context.
Koen Theys' show Arabian Nights is on view till the 19th of August.
