This solo exhibition showcases the acclaimed conceptual artist Koen Vanmechelen. His cross disciplinary research focuses on glass as the material of the future, degradable and buildable. It requires the fusion of a creative vision with high craftsmanship. Fire is needed to enable its transformations into different states. In our times, Nature is burning, things are changing: this is visualised through the clash of materials – stone, bronze, glass, flesh – in a dance of natural elements, which also refers to the clash of Nature and Culture. The burning mouth of the furnace is the centre of the arena.
