excerpt from the Clouds catalogue
I became intrigued when my friend Chris mentioned how much she enjoyed the exhibit "Clouds" in Mons. I did not have the opportunity to visit it yet but found the catalogue to be very inviting. The exhibit runs until October 18 at the occasion of Mons, the European Capital of Culture 2015.
Uniting opposites and extremes, luxuriant, inexhaustible and ever-changing, they are an ideal metaphor for living creatures. In the prestigious and historic setting of the castle of the Princes of Croÿ at Roeulx, the Croÿ-Roeulx Foundation presents a major artistic event, an exhibition on the most human of celestial bodies as seen by modern and contemporary artists. In this fresh approach to the subject, a kind of ‘cloud horticulture’ is practised, in keeping with the spirit of the place – the Castle, Orangery and gardens.Some thirty artists – from Jean Arp to René Magritte, from Man Ray to Jaume Plensa, from Robert Therrien to Michel François – using photographs, paintings, videos, sculptures and installations, will feature in this discovery walk at Château du Roeulx, which will be open especially for this event".

Thank you, Dominique Viaene, for sharing your photos with TiB!
"Each summer the Art Festival Watou sets up camp in the art village Watou, near the French border. Poets and visual artists, upcoming talent and established values, works of art from Belgium and abroad all find their place on our exceptional art trail. The village is the setting and this offers about ten characteristic locations as exposition rooms: a former monastery, an old farm or the cellar of a brewery. The interaction between these surprising, nostalgic rooms and the contemporary art and poetry each time creates a unique experience"http://www.kunstenfestivalwatou.be/nl/pagina/924-936/in-the-lee-of-the-in-between.html
