Oud Huis / laatste dag Gilding The Lily - Les Monseigneurs

Pay what you can

Open Monumentendag 2020:
15e eeuwse muurschildering en hedendaagse wandtapijten

Tijdens de Open Monumentendag 2020 kunt u de 15e eeuwse muurschildering in het Oud Huis van Kunsthal Gent bezoeken. Het is ook de laatste dag van de tentoonstelling Gilding the Lily, met wandtapijten van Les Monseigneurs (Gent.)

15e eeuwse muurschildering
Bij de ontmanteling van een muur in het Oud Huis zijn tijdens de renovatie van het Caermersklooster in de jaren negentig tot ieders verrassing onder het behang niet één maar twee muurschilderingen gevonden. Het eerste en meest recente werk dat gevonden werd, was een grote 19de-eeuwse muurschildering in neorenaissancestijl. Onder die muurschildering bleek nog een oudere wandschildering te zitten: een zeer beschadigde calvariegroep uit de 15de eeuw met Christus aan het kruis, geflankeerd door Maria en de apostel Johannes. De schildering is van de hand van een onbekende meester en is hardhandig bewerkt met een bijl of hakmes. In afwachting van verdere renovatie toont de wand in het Oud Huis met zijn verschillende lagen van muurschilderingen en behangpapier de sporen van de geschiedenis, van de 15e eeuw tot vandaag. De muurschildering is een complex kunstwerk dat op zijn geheel eigen manier aansluit bij de tentoonstellingen in Kunsthal Gent.

Les Monseigneurs - Gilding The Lily - laatste kans!
Het Oud Huis van Kunsthal Gent biedt een refuge aan een triptiek van wandtapijten door de Gentse Les Monseigneurs. Het werk werd speciaal gemaakt voor de San Celso Basiliek in Milaan ter gelegenheid van de jaarlijkse designbeurs Salone del Mobile 2020, maar kon daar niet getoond worden ten gevolge van Covid-19. De drie impressionante wandtapijten zijn nu tijdens de zomermaanden in Gent te zien.

1,70 m x 3,5 m (per stuk); katoen, papier, linnen, 2020.
Geweven in samenwerking met TextielMuseum Tilburg
