WELCOME - BIENVENUE - WELKOM! 26/8 - 25/9, 2016

 
Art Inspired by, and in Dialogue with, Nature
The Enchanted Garden will again open its’ gates and invite the visitor on a journey of mysteries and wonders, transformations and metamorphosis. Wander through an avenue of cherry trees and winding trails, and find deep ponds and secret forest rooms, chapels and a labyrinth, and listen, see, and hear…
This large and natural garden, situated just near the ‘border’ between the French and the Flemish part of Belgium, hosts a most special International art exhibition: It is eclectic, with a multitude of expressions in spirit and form; amazing and beautiful, fun and burlesque, poetic, thoughtful, meditative...
That is:  Art Inspired by, and in Dialogue With, Nature.
Thirty-one artists from Belgium, France, Indonesia, Netherlands, Norway, and United Kingdom, are represented with works in glass, stone, metal, wood, textiles, and ceramics, land art and street art, sound installations and music.
To mention a few of the aspects of the exhibition: This year Art Sanctuary Welcomes many NEW artists:
 
ü  Beautifully haunting ‘Nature Spirits’ appear in the dappled light of the forest; the works of Toni Kanwa (Indonesia) in wood in both macro and micro is simply astounding!
ü  ‘Street art’ in a garden? ‘Land art’ combined with Graffiti? This is what landscape architect Jean de la Kethulle (B) in collaboration with graffiti artist Axel have done. The ‘InTERREaction’ installation has undergone a most unexpected metamorphosis to a butterfly!
ü  Friedy Evers Duijsters (NL), Tina Lintvelt (NL),  Loes Knoben van Herwaarden(NL), Else Ringnalda (NL), and artists and poet Lebuïn d’Haese (B)  show an amazing range of new bronze works !
 
 ü Glass has also this year a special focus: Four artists work with glass in all different styles and techniques; Trijnie Mohlmann (NL),  Irene van der Does de Bye (NL), join returning Marcel Haccuria (B), and Marie Biesmans (B).
 
ü  Jan Verschueren’s ‘Schrootbeelden’ (B) are fantastic, humorous, and sort of sad…truly human. 
 
ü  Humor is also a key word in the works of ceramicist Marianne Ouwendijk (NL) and Marc Henrotin (B), who works shows works in metal and beton.


 ü We are also very proud to present new sculptures in stone by Pierre Bertrand (B), and Lieve (Bluefingers) Jacob (B) with beautiful textiles. And Serge Bastin (B)is represented with land art/installation. 
 
ü  Finally, on a special note; the music of award winning composer Barbara Hills (UK), adds a very special dimension, experienced as sound installations in different parts of the garden/exhibition.

 
We are also very happy to welcome returning artists:
 
ü  Often inspired by classical art, Roos Mannaerts’ (NL); her sculptures have found many admirers among our visitors. We are very pleased to announce her return to the garden!
ü  Michel Vranckx (B); Satirical, humorous, his ceramic are always very touching and a favourite.
ü  Metal sculptor Romeo Sr. Vangoethemd (B) has always an unexpected ‘creature’ to add to the garden.
As does Roland Menten (B) who works in composite.
ü  We are happy to welcome back from Norway: Anne Hesvik, who is a true master of old decorative painting.
ü  And we are very curious when the amazing paper architecture of Ingrid Siliakus (NL) is transformed into a lamp!
ü  And we are anticipating Luk Luts (B), and sculptor/musician Fabrice Bellery (B), who will both return with their new works in blue stone!
ü  Will Schropp (NL), returns also this year, with his beautiful sculptures in wood.
ü  As will playful hanging mobiles by Luc Leroy (B).
ü  And Laura Frennet (B/F)’s special fondness for trees will this year be manifested in a very special group of ‘tree people’!
ü  Tone Aanderaa (N/B), who is also the organiser and curator of the exhibition, shows her new paintings.
