Villers : extra-muros exhibition “Folon. Sculptures” at the Abbey


Extension until March 21

As part of the 20th anniversary of the Folon Foundation, the Abbey – in collaboration with another cultural centre of Walloon Brabant, the Folon Foundation – is delighted to organize an exhibition of twenty monumental and original sculptures by the internationally renowned Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon. The exhibition echoes the publication of a beautiful art book devoted to the sculptures of the artist (Mercator Fund).

A prestigious architectural monument

The Abbey’s proposal to host some 20 sculptures among the most evocative of the artist, is part of the tradition dear to Folon of confronting his works with the beauty of a monumental, historical and architectural place and seeing how they respond to the light and the seasons. Here, the sculptures are confronted with the spirituality contained in the old stones of the Cistercian site, as well as with the colours of autumn and winter.
