I first visited this lovely gallery during their opening exhibition. They were showing work from the polaroid collection of Bruno Bisang. The owner, Benny, immediately came over to introduce himself. A charming guy and clearly very passionate about photography. Even though he probably explained the work of Bisang a hundred times the day before and had plenty champagne during opening night, it felt as if we were the first two people walking through the door.
On the top floor of the building, they installed a lounge, where we were introduced to Jane, Benny’s wife who started this project with him. Their kids were serving wine and bubbles which we got for free. It all added up to the friendly atmosphere of the art center. The lounge is very cozy, with a lot of art books and magazines to browse.
During the exhibition, there was also a workshop ‘make-up’ going on. Since then, they regularly organize workshops on different topics, which I think is nice, it gives a very dynamic impression to the center.
