Middle Gate Geel ’13 is an exposition which focuses on three major categories: myth, psychiatry and art. It looks into the interaction and the mutual influence between mythical and more religious art, outsider’s and insider’s art.

Curator: Jan Hoet

In the solo-exhibition Grand Vin d’Anvers at the Tim Van Laere Gallery (Antwerp 2002), Peter De Cupere at that time showed besides his big wine installation also a few concept drawings of still to realise works with wine. For the exhibition Middle Gate in Geel he further realises the work ‘Wine Table’ (2002) and the performance ‘Drunken’.

drunken45In the performance ’Drunken’ one sees the artist as a loner sitting at a table. After drinking the red wine, he opens two drawers of the table. The latter are positioned opposite one another and as such create the shape of a ‘cross’ together with the table. By opening the drawers one sees that a part of the surface of the table also opens up and a space filled with red wine becomes visible. He fills his glass again from this sea of red wine, drinks and crawls into the table, laying himself down in the wine. Waiting on a state of complete drunkenness, not just orally, but physically sucking up the red alcohol into his body. Afterwards he crawls back out of the table and lets his behaviour and stature be determined by the influence of his being drunk. The artist finishes back at the table where he started.

 For several years, researchers and industrialists were interested in sensorial effects of their breakthroughs and products on the human-being. New markets were created, in the field of touch, hearing, taste and vision, with more innovative products. But how about the sense of smell and its digitization?  Digital Olfaction Society World Congress 2013 will be held in Berlin in April 11-12, 2013 and will aim to open up toward a subject with large scientific and industrial potential, called the olfaction digital science.

Museum to scale 1/7 is an initiative by Ronny Van de Velde which has been developed by the artist Wesley Meuris. In accordance with a firmly established postmodern tradition, the museum is at once subject and object of an intervention that operates as a mise en abîme – that is, the representation of an object using the object itself as a frame of reference. Museum to scale features more than a hundred miniature exhibition rooms at a scale of 1:7 that are devoted to Belgian artists and Belgian artistic movements.

  Museum to Scale 1/7 is a project initiated by renowned Belgian art collector and scholar Ronny Van de Velde and organized by The Baker Museum. Consisting of a collection of close to 70 diorama museum galleries devoted to Belgian artists and art movements, the installation recalls the 17th, 18th and 19th century Wunderkammern, the cabinets of curiosities/wonder, and is also conceived as homage to Marcel Duchamp and his boîte-en-valise and to Grandville’s illustrations for Gulliver’s Travels.

The process of repurposing materials has immeasurable benefits. There are instinctive, economic, esthetic, philosophical, and even political reasons to recycle, and visual artists are a very big part of this process. In an attempt to bring together compelling examples of this trend, D. Dominick Lombardi asked a number of artists from various parts of the world to answer four questions with the hopes of clarifying this ever-increasing phenomenon of repurposing with a purpose.
