From Above, It Seems Like A Normal Church. Look At It From Eye-Level, And You’ll Be Shocked

Art Museum Z33 in Haspengouw, Belgium, wanted to bring art outside of its museum walls and into its landscape space. The resulting trajectory, “Pit,” part of larger exhibit “Z-OUT,” displays public artworks by 10 artists. Each piece stands alone, unclustered, each requiring its own trip to see and appreciate it.

One of the most riveting pieces was “Reading Between The Lines” by collective Gijs Van Vaerenbergh.

It’s a church constructed with 30 tons of steel ribs placed in such a way that it’s transparent on each side.

The grounds of Z33 are on the former site of Hasselt Béguinage, a community of monastic women.
