Seating area artists: Arnaud Eubelen, Bram Vanderbeke, Léo Baqué

The village of Doel has many nooks and crannies, empty parcels in between abandoned houses still standing, unused space which is left with no function. The festival grounds can be divided into two parts, each part housing two stages and with one path connecting the two large sections. Right next to that path, on such an empty parcel, we decided to create a dedicated seating area, a place in the lands between, where you can take a break, have conversations and do some people watching, as literally everyone will have to tread this road.

We invited three visual artists, Arnaud Eubelen, Bram Vanderbeke and Léo Baqué, whose work connects with Doel in terms of matter and shape, to install functional art pieces for you to sit on and be engaged with. The rough nature of Arnaud’s and Bram’s pieces, the near deteriorated look and the use of recycled materials make for the perfect fit in this environment. As if these pieces were always there. Additionally Baqué’s 3D printed spiralling light sculptures offer a psychedelic break.

Arnaud Eubelen originates from Liege and his work entails the use of build materials and found objects, repurposed and ingeniously crafted together, to form his almost always functional artworks.

Bram Vanderbeke, based in Ghent, sees shape where it has not yet manifested, pouring concrete into benches and reforming interiors into abstract cities.

Léo Bacué’s creations capture attention, surprise through sensation, and question the viewer’s relationship to the world. His work is characterized by a cross-disciplinary approach, mixing mediums, using space, real time, light and moving matter to shape intriguing sensory experiences.
