Clouds… This natural phenomena is the subject of daily scientific and popular interest under the meteorological prism, but they also have a very broad status as “poetic objects”. Clouds fascinate, invite contemplation and day-dreaming. Countless poets, writers and artists are inspired by them and enhance their many characteristics: transience, lightness, ascent, metamorphosis, movement, evanescence, transparency, opacity, gentleness, threat…

Their range of colour, shape and light is infinite – expressions of the divine, signs of something beyond, decorative subjects or sources of aesthetic inspiration – clouds have been a prominent feature of artistic representations for centuries. Even today, while climate and environmental issues are at the heart of societal issues, they are a prolific topic with many potentialities.

Presenting a selection of artists who are mostly active on the Belgian contemporary art scene and are addressing the theme of the cloud in a recurring or occasional way, the exhibition is above all an invitation to dream, to escape and to take flight.
