On Friday the 22nd of March, the exhibition Marie-Jo Lafontaine. Troubled Waters ! will exceptionally be closed.

 

The renowned photographer Marie-Jo Lafontaine fills the Horta Hall with her contemporary and personal response to the altarpieces by Bernard van Orley. The three gigantic photographs of Troubled Waters! show the female body in a floating state of weightlessness. Secret, intimate and subjective connections are woven between the world of Marie-Jo Lafontaine and that of the Renaissance painter. What can be gleamed from a portrait, and what stays hidden? Beyond the centuries, common motives appear.
