The exhibition Standing Still / Still Standing runs from 1 October to 31 January at Destelheide and offers a complete experience of photographs by Johan van Steen, poems by Kristin Verellen and testimonies by participants of the Circle Rites. This will be done in conjunction with the work of Brussels youngsters from Centrum West who, in the summer of 2019, under the guidance of artist Katrien Oosterlinck and supported in Circles of We have the choice, started to work creatively on the Circle theme.
Through various approaches, the exhibition Standing Still / Standing Standing allows visitors to experience how pausing at a situation contributes to connection with yourself and others, and ultimately to new resilience. Because no matter what happens to you, you can always choose how you deal with it. We have the choice.
The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 24 October at 7 pm with a musical and poetic animated interview with Kristin Verellen and Katrien Oosterlinck. Sigrid Bousset, director of the Herman Teirlinckhuis and Bryce Bettens, an engaged young talent from Beersel, will provide a lively conversation. Afterwards, you can discover the exhibition during a festive reception, and get a signed book to support the non-profit cause of We have the choice. At 20h30 you will have the opportunity to experience a Circle yourself, guided by We have the choice, in the beautiful setting of the exhibition. Paul J. Simon, a talented musician from the region, puts us in the mood with some of his new songs. Registration is necessary.
