For the first occurrence of Muse exhibition program, Nathalie Guiot, a former journalist and publisher, who is also producing Experienz, a new performance platform at Brussels' Wiels contemporary art centre, has invited curator Emmanuel Lambion to organise an exhibition in her house, built in 2002 by Marc Corbiau. The exhibition combines a selection of works from her own collection with others specifically chosen (or produced) to integrate the very special space of this landmark of contemporary architecture: a concrete bunker facing the Verrewinkel wood, in Uccle, on the outskirts of the Brussels region. Beyond the generic theme of the exhibition, which will be developed herewith, specific directions such as the dialectical tension between nature and artefact, between art and architecture, together with reflections on the creative process and the value of a work of art are all possible entries to apprehend this exhibition, which is dense and eclectic, mixing videos, drawings, paintings and sculptures.
