every Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, between 11am and 7pm
visitors entry: via Kaaistraat car park B-9140 Tielrode
The admission is free; but a small gift would be a grand gesture for the non-profit organisation artecetera in this bizarre period.

Around honey as the golden-yellow, tongue-caressing ‘sweetener’,
About apiculture and Anthophilia, freely translated into ‘flower worshipper’,
Along the miraculous, ingenious honeycomb, which is both nursery and storage; 
To the fragility of existence and the worrying bee mortality.
An expo full of wonder with fascinating artworks and groundbreaking objects and jewellery balancing between contemporary cross-over art and craft.

Een oud Duits spreekwoord: Wie gods wonderen wil gadeslaan, moet naar de bijen gaan.

De symbolische kracht van de honingbij is een constante in de geschiedenis van de mensheid.

De bij geeft aanleiding tot religieuze riten, bijgeloof en verhalen over wonderen.

Het wezen van de bij is raadselachtig.

De fascinatie voor het leven van de bijen blijft een poging de benauwende grenzen van de realiteit te doorbreken. De bijen bewegen zich vrij in de lucht, zijn toch gebonden aan de aarde, hun veelvuldigheid (de planten, bloemen) heeft een duidelijk doel (de korf, de honing).

Dit illustreert de vrijheid in gebondenheid: tegelijkertijd zichzelf zijn en een maatschappelijk wezen blijven.


In 2019, BeCraft joined the Cultural Council of the Michelangelo Foundation. As a member for three years, the association is actively working to identify and recommend Belgian master craftspeople to the Foundation. The Michelangelo Foundation and BeCraft share many objectives, the most fundamental of which is that of perpetuating skills and techniques through the transmission of knowledge and raising public awareness of the reality facing contemporary applied arts. Given the considerable challenge for artists and institutions that constituted the period of lockdown due to Covid-19, the opportunity to propose an exhibition with an international reach for the reopening seemed opportune. On this occasion BeCraft spotlights twelve artists, the first Belgian representatives of Homo Faber. Each offer a unique perspective on the technical mastery of their specific fields related to the applied arts. The collaboration with the Michelangelo Foundation on this exhibition opens up promising perspectives on the question of the sustainability of contemporary applied arts. It offers the public the possibility to discover a significant insight into the quality of the contemporary applied art professions in Belgium. It is also an opportunity for the artists to become acquainted with The Master’s Touch Evaluation Tool, the selection tool of the Michelangelo Foundation in order to be promoted internationally through its projects.

They’re all artists who know the pot by heart. They produced it, loved it and still love it. But rather than perpetuating a production of containers, they prefer to divert or rely on the vocabulary of the pottery tradition to express themselves differently, to enjoin this millennial history to be nourished by an original and much more contemporary reflection.
The results are both splendid and surprising. As you can see, fragments of pots are still hiding there, sometimes in a fragmentary way, but from any function relieved. They are sculptures enriched with a whole bunch of historical references that only reinforce their cultural relevance.

Ce sont tous des artistes connaissant le pot par cœur. Ils l’ont produit, l’ont aimé et l’aiment toujours. Mais plutôt que perpétuer une production de contenants, ils préfèrent détourner ou s’appuyer sur  le vocabulaire de la tradition potière pour s’exprimer autrement, pour enjoindre à cette histoire millénaire de se nourrir d’une réflexion originale et autrement plus contemporaine.
Les résultats sont à la fois splendides et surprenants. Comme vous le voyez, des bribes de pots s’y cachent toujours, parfois de façon fragmentaire, mais de toute fonction délestés. Ce sont des sculptures enrichies de tout un bouquet de références historiques qui ne font que renforcer leur pertinence culturelle.

MEMENTO MONS, cabinets de curiosités, BAM, Mons, Belgium 05/10/2019>26/01/2020

Memento Mons is an invitation to embark on a journey of discovery.
Cabinets with a curious collection of historical pieces in an entourage of contemporary objects balancing on the border between visual art, craft and design. A contemporary cabinet of curiosities, a tribute to the ‘Wunderkammer’, in which universal notions of ‘vanitas’ are deconstructed and underlined. The concept of ‘memento’ is just as relevant and current today as it was in the time of the Romans. “Look behind you! Remember that you are only human!” the slave whispered into the ear of the victorious general during Roman triumph. [Tertullian]
In essence, nothing has really changed …

REAR WINDOW curated by Brian Kennedy, Masons Yard London, UK 30/10>20/12/2019

This autumn Brian Kennedy presents a new series of curated exhibitions under the title REAR WINDOW in partnership with, Taste Contemporary – Geneva, Oliver Sears Gallery – Dublin and Ting-Ying – Hong Kong.

At a time when international art fairs, biennales and exhibitions continue to grow in scale, it seems timely to re-ignite our desire to connect with art in a more intimate way, to view work in a space that relates to our domestic environment, to prompt starting points for collections. 


Thematically connected and presented in a space that eliminates disciplinary hierarchies, curator Brian Kennedy now brings us REAR WINDOW; a series of four thoughtfully curated exhibitions that explore different attitudes to contemporary creativity. Over eight weeks from October to December 2019, REAR WINDOW presents separate, but linked shows that address concerns within contemporary art, craft and design.


Beau-laid introduces the notion of beauty within work that might, on the surface, be perceived as ugly; Parallax invites us to consider artists’ varying viewpoints; Florid presents us with old fashioned extravagances within contemporary art while Repeat investigates meanings around repetition within abstraction.


Through sensitive curation, REAR WINDOW invites both existing and new collectors to view art in a culturally relevant and exciting, yet intimate space that offers a fresh insight into a world made more interesting by things.
