The exhibition Four Rooms for Five Thoughts shows a selection of recent works of Herman van Ingelgem and Chloé Op de Beeck. Their cooperation which started in 2015 arose from an intense correspondence. Since then they have been researching how this dialogue and the sharing of experiences can be a method of working. By means of different media (drawings, installations, videos, sculptures, …) they question in an authentic manner how language and memory work in relationship to their surrounding architecture and art history.
