In accordance with the philosophy of Gaasbeek Castle, the works of great names and up-and-coming talents enter into dialogue with the romantic castle interiors. We meet sleeping figures and poetic daydreamers, but also mysterious shadows and oppressive nightmares. Visitors are immersed in an unreal atmosphere inspired by the blue hour. You find yourself in an intermediate world, floating between day and night, between waking and sleeping.
Sleeping Beauties wants to be much more than a predictable collection of sleeping beauties. This exhibition in Gaasbeek Castle (9 Sept. to 13 Nov. 2011) takes the visitor to a dream world down the rabbit hole. The exhibition presents a selection of works of contemporary art from the last thirty years that were specifically inspired by sleep and dream.

Despite some field research, our knowledge of the sacred among the Mumuye is very limited. In all these non-hierarchical groups, which are dichotomous and antinomian in composition, the va-complex predominates, which has a rich semantic meaning, with certain emphases prevailing depending on the circumstances. Religious power resides in sacred objects watched over by the elders.
