through art we care - Oracle


Oracle (Michel Yang, Caroline Daish, Justine Maxelon) is participating in the exhibition 'through art we care', as part of their long term residency from the IN/FINITY project at the TOPAZ supportive an palliative day care center.

Over the past three years the “IN/FINITY” project has invited artists across disciplines to come work as resident artists at the TOPAZ palliative and supportive hospice of the Brussels University Hospital.  This project was both a research as to how artists can create a dialogue with a healthcare contexts (the facility, the staff, the patients,…) as a way to artistically explore what is possible in such a context and how it affects both the artists, patients and staff.  Over these 3 years a total of 8 artists have completed a trajectory at TOPAZ and many more have briefly visited or come along with the residents.  The exhibition shows not only the work created by the artists during these 3 years but also documents our/their approach and experiences in working within a healthcare facility.  It addresses the questions that arose while working, the recurring themes that almost all of the artists started to explore, the ways art became a catalyst to dialogue, inspiration and creativity at the hospice.
With: Christian Bakalov, Jorge Leon, Naomi Kerkhove, Emi Kodama, Rudi Meulemans, ORACLE (Michel Yang, Caroline Daish, Justine Maxelon), Michael Schmid, Vera Tussing,…
