Artist Talk
Sophie Nys in conversation with Caroline Dumalin

Zuweilen, zuzeiten, immer is a garland of white metal flags installed in a field between Welkenraedt and Eupen. Hung half-mast, the 42 flags remember the people who lost their lives in the floods that recently ravaged the southeast of Belgium.

Artist Sophie Nys will be in conversation with curator Caroline Dumalin about her work Zuweilen, zuzeiten, immer and the process behind it. After the talk, there will be a walking visit to the sculpture.

In conjunction with the art trail Endless Express, which is spread over different destinations along the railway line between Ostend and Eupen, the talk is organised by EUROPALIA Arts Festival in collaboration with IKOB.

About the artist
Working with a variety of media and materials, Sophie Nys (b. 1974, Belgium) takes conceptual and minimalistic artistic strategies to their logical and formal limits, while maintaining the poetic eloquence of subjects derived from the everyday. Her art’s sparseness produces an ambiguous atmosphere, in which meaning emerges slowly but surely. Sophie Nys lives and works in Brussels.
