‘Façade 2017’, Middelburg (NL)


July 14 will see the opening of Façade 2017, where you can see Cage (2017) by Atelier Van Lieshout. Huis presents the audience with a deconstructed, distorted cage; a disfigured prison that symbolizes the human longing for freedom.

In addition, Atelier van Lieshout captured the deconstructive process of Huis in collaboration with filmmaker Sonia Herman Dolz. The straight-edged cage was pushed apart with the use of heavy, self-made machines – i.e. a large drop hammer and hydraulic press with pressure. This film will be on display at CBK Zeeland, Middelburg.

Façade 2017 will run from July 14th until November 5th 2017
