The Croÿ-Roeulx Foundation presents a major artistic event
Clouds are fantastical dream machines – wondrous and magical, and in touch with infinity.
Uniting opposites and extremes, luxuriant, inexhaustible and ever-changing, they are an ideal metaphor for living creatures. In the prestigious and historic setting of the castle of the Princes of Croÿ at Roeulx, the Croÿ-Roeulx Foundation presents a major artistic event, an exhibition on the most human of celestial bodies as seen by modern and contemporary artists. In this fresh approach to the subject, a kind of ‘cloud horticulture’ is practised, in keeping with the spirit of the place – the Castle, Orangery and gardens.
Some thirty artists – from Jean Arp to René Magritte, from Man Ray to Jaume Plensa, from Robert Therrien to Michel François – using photographs, paintings, videos, sculptures and installations, will feature in this discovery walk at Château du Roeulx, which will be open especially for this event.
