The Feast of Trimalchio, 2009, 3-channel HD video installation will be presented at the lille3000 Festival in France as part of Au bout de mes rêves, an exhibition of the Vanhaerents Art Collection.
Since 2007, lille3000 has presented a number of high-profile contemporary art exhibitions in an exceptional cultural venue: the Tripostal in Lille.
The Vanhaerents Art Collection is one of Belgium’s largest private collections of contemporary art. For Walter Vanhaerents, “J’irai au bout de mes rêves” (I will follow my dreams to the end), inspired by the eponymous song release by Jean-Jacques Goldman in 1982, is about accepting risk and ongoing commitment.
Reflecting this collection, Au bout de mes rêves, showcased over the three floors of the Tripostal, is intentionally strong and socially aware, while still conveying a sense of light and wonder during these sombre times.
Where dreams exist, there is hope for change or a new beginning. Here the dream of a collection compiled with passion over the last 50 years has been achieved.
