It is the plants themselves that play the leading role and, aided by time, write their own history. For Matsuda, a work of art is therefore not an object but rather a snapshot in a process. Ryusaku Matsuda does not want to make art for eternity, but hopes that his works will age and decay with him. As this remarkable publication proves, Matsuda’s art is not only intriguing and philosophical, but also visually stunning.
From 5 May to 16 September 2018, Bruges will form the backdrop to the second edition of the Triennial, an art trail in the heart of the historic city. With the theme Liquid City, the Triennial aims to investigate the role of a city like Bruges in a globalised and changing world. With their artistic and architectural installations, the participants in Triennial Bruges 2018 | Liquid City create welcoming public spaces in the city centre. These temporary interventions at less well-known and iconic places in the historic cityscape offer opportunities for wonder, encounter and dialogue.
