Full Description

Sleeping Beauties is more than just another predictable collection of attractive sleepyheads. With a selection of contemporary artworks explicitly inspired by the world of dream and sleep, the exposition Sleeping Beauties allows its visitors to take a peek into the dream world down the rabbit hole. In accordance with the philosophy of the Kasteel van Gaasbeek the works of acclaimed artists (Michael Borremans, Spencer Tunick, Bill Viola et al) as well as newcomers and outsiders is shown, and given the chance to interact with the romantic interiors of the castle. During the trip into the wonderland of sleep we meet daydreamers, blissful sleepers, mysterious phantoms and fearsome creatures of the night. Visitors are submerged in a hidden world, an illusory atmosphere, inspired by the blue hour. One steps into an intermediary world, floating between day and night, between snoozing and being wide awake. Text in English & Dutch.
