I sprinkled the 100-square-meter ‘cathedral’ at Atelier FAAR with brightly colored pigment — diluted with wheat flour, the offspring of the field.

Writer Lotte Dodion invites Antwerp women for a special posing session in the large studio of ‘Het Rubenshuis’ in Antwerp, a place where many women posed for the artist.

Every thursday evening in December 2022, 3 women, a poet and a female artist (Nel Maertens, Myriam Voet, Shamisa Debroey, Juliane Noll and Betül Sefika) take up the challenge. 
It is an exciting but gentle project where voyeurism, feminism and live performance meet. Based on the posing sessions, Lotte will write a new poem that she will present on thursday 5/01/22 at the Rubens House.

Images inspired by Rubens’ ‘Het Pelsken’.
Oil pastel and soft pastel on paper and cardboard.
Le Rêve en Boîte 
Antwerp based jewellery brand Wouters & Hendrix’ infinite fascination with creativity and craftsmanship led them to three female artists who each in their own way push the boundaries of their craft. Given carte blanche, video artists Annie Van Noortwijk & Marije Seijn, visual artist and designer Nel Maertens and papier mâché sculptor Elsa Dray-Farges introduced ‘Le Rêve en Boîte’ into their own creative universes. The result is a series of three unique visual interpretations of what a memory container can convey.

‘Le Rêve en Boîte’ is a limited edition of jewellery boxes by Wouters & Hendrix, hand painted by artist Céline Felga.
