Discover Galila's P.O.C. adventorous private collection. It resembles a contemporary curiosity cabinet. 20 odd themes such as eyes, books, chairs, or recycling concepts reveal the personal fascinations of the collector.
WIELS shows an overview of 40 years of work of the reknowned sculptor Didier Vermeiren (1951, Brussels). Repetition, reversal, doubling and inversion are recurrent artistic strategies in his practice.

About Galila’s P.O.C
Galila’s P.O.C, a contemporary art collection of Galila Barzilaï, opened its doors in Brussels in 2020. The public has the chance to discover a collection organized around a multitude of heterogeneous themes and presented in the form of a cabinet of curiosities bearing countless objects of a seemingly disharmonious nature. However, the abundance of crafts in all genres has organized themes evoking motley accumulation and classifications one can find in Renaissance curiosity cabinets.
About Didier Vermeiren Double Exposition at WIELS
Repetition, reversal, doubling and inversion are recurrent artistic strategies in the practice of Didier Vermeiren (1951, Brussels), one of the most important sculptors in Europe. Double Exposition presents sculptures and photographs made recently or during the last four decades.
