Heaven and Hell. From magic carpets to drones.



Exhibition, Villa Empain, Brussels, Belgium, until 6 September.

The exhibition broaches the theme of flying machines and flying carpets from different angles: the symbolism of old carpets and the symbolism of the geometry of the gardens inspiring them, the age-old dream of flying and imaginary flying objects, the world seen from the sky, the occupation of space by satellites, and the worldwide development of drones and their consequences. Many artists have been invited to take part in this show, or to be represented in it.
