Jaume Plensa - Something sacred
From 1st July to 8 October 2023
For the very first time in the history of Mons, there will be a museum-like exhibition of monumental sculptures in the heart of the Doudou City: from the Grand-Place to the Saint Waltrude Collegiate Church by way of the Mayor’s Garden and St. George’s hall - a deconsecrated chapel - very recently renovated and reopened for this unique exhibition. This district demarcates the sacred historical centre of Mons as the city has developed between religious and civil power over the centuries; it’s a strong symbolic axis of the City. Jaume Plensa’s sculptures have the particularity of releasing spiritual energy that the artist cultivates outside any religious framework. This veritable face-to-face encounter between the Catalan sculptor and the exceptional heritage aims to bring out this district’s sacred part, which constitutes the original essence of Mons.
