Gijs Van Vaerenbergh – Reading Between the Lines

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Reading between the Lines is part of ‘pit’, an artistic trajectory with works by  ten artists in the region of Borgloon-Heers, Holland. ‘Pit’ will be the first part of the exhibition project Z-OUT, an initiative in which Z33, the contemporary art museum of the city of Hasselt, presents art in public space.

On September 24th, Gijs Van Vaerenbergh revealed a construction in the rural landscape based on the design of the local church which consists of 30 tons of steel and 2000 columns, and is built on a fundament of armed concrete. Through the use of horizontal plates, the concept of the traditional church is transformed into a transparent object of art.
