Miniature works

Léonore Frenois

© Veerle Vercauteren

Have you ever climbed to the top of scaffolding? Have you ever seen trees ... upside down? Have you ever seen a wood fire in… neon lights? Have you ever seen objects that become what you want them to be? And that then become your own work of art? If, as is the case with John M Armleder, art is a game to you, let's go discover his works together as we wander through the vast expanses of the KANAL museum: supine, vertical, upside down, dancing, meditating, in the dark, in the light, etc. Over the 5 floors dedicated to John Armleder and his many friends, we will observe, question, play, distort and appropriate the objects gathered and assembled by this truly astonishing artist! We'll even create a truly miniature work of art, no bigger than a postage stamp. And with good cause, as it has to be sent in an envelope to… John M Armleder himself! A workshop for those who like to observe, play, assemble, transform, move, among disco balls or tyres, in the showroom of the former Citroën garage.
