De Tuin van Gistern* en Morgen

Blauwhaus is proud to present a new collaboration (commissioned by Stad Aalst -Tourism & Heritage) between Isabel Bouttens (illustrations) and Wim Wauman (texts and woodwork) decorating three monumental wooden walls installed in the Sint-Martins Church (Aalst) during the extensive restoration work.

Wim and Isabel drew their inspiration from the interior and history of the church, the iconography, symbols and art works on site. And from their imagination. The intervention (WxH: approx. 20 x 24 m) combines XXL printed (digital) drawings/paintings with fantastic details; hand veneered assemblages and artefacts; and a (Re)Creational Story: accumulation of linguistic play featuring a multitude of invented words (Dutch); a deviant vocabulary.
