writing and art beyond walls, beyond borders

Art of the Box

Landkoperskapel, Merkplas Kolonie
10-26 October 2014

Expo with literature and art from inmates

Between May 2013 and May 2014 inmates collaborated with teachers and artists in the prisons of Hoogstraten, Wortel (department of Tilburg), Oudenaarde and Dendermonde.

Art boxes contained different pieces of art and provoked an exchange between inmates across borders.

During the exposition ART OF THE BOX, literature and visual arts from the inmates were presented in a unique environment, the Landloperskapel ('Vagrant Chapel') in Merksplas.

On the varnishing day on October 10th, inmates discussed the collaboration with PAROL!. They were also involved in the logistic part of the exposition.
