The exhibition :
“Monumentality – Fragility means the same thing, the same sky everywhere, although different.” Kadri Mälk
Monumentality – Fragility are the two words of inspiration proposed by the WCC • BF to inaugurate the thematic edition of the European Prize for Applied Arts. Delicate robustness, provocative innocence, abundance and vulnerability, … Artists take the word almost antithesis or divert it by establishing a contrast sometimes plastic, sometimes aesthetic, social, environmental, … Indifferent spokespersons, they combine the aesthetic sensitivity of our contemporary society the respect of secular know-how to respond to this theme raising the existential question of self, others and the World.
For this 4th edition of the European Prize for Applied Arts, the WCC • BF shines the best names of established artists and young talents from Belgium. 77 artists from 19 European countries bring their notes, skilfully orchestrated by Evelyne Gilmont in this historic site of the Anciens Abattoirs de Mons.
