2019 commemorates the 450 anniversary of the death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The city of Dilbeek celebrates this with an open-air exhibition with installations by several international artists and designers. The exhibition is a time warp and sets Bruegel against a 21st century... backdrop. We follow the gaze of the painter when he was composing his impressive landscape paintings. The chapel of Sint-Anna-Pede and the watermill of Sint-Gertrudis-Pede, two monuments painted by Bruegel, are the starting and ending point for a walk along fifteen installations. Fifteen artists, designers and architects designed a trail through the landscape that inspired Bruegel five centuries ago. They construct pavilions, make structures, design imaginative landscapes and tell stories that interact with places, play with the perception of the space, create new unexpected environments, work disorienting or help to focus attention. Featuring artworks by Rotor, Filip Dujardin, Koen van den Broek, Erik Dhont, KGDVS & Bas Pincen, Bas Smets, Lois Weinberger, Landinzicht, Guillaume Bijl, Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, Futurefarmers, Georges Rousse and Josse De Pauw. Curator of 'De Blik van Bruegel' is Stefan Devoldere, professor and dean of the Faculty of Architecture and Art at Hasselt University. Text in English and Dutch.
