Gijs Van Vaerenbergh (Pieterjan Gijs & Arnout Van Vaerenbergh) - The Upside Dome (St Michiel Church , Leuven; 2010)
The installation casts light on the architecture of one of the most prestigious baroque churches of the Low Countries from a contemporary perspective. Using the design technique of the catenary, a new structure emerges in the church. The Upside Dome is a real size scale model, comprised of hundreds of meters of chain, which is literally and figuratively the counterpart of the unfinished dome.
