Jimmy Kets, Sint Gummarus 2


From 3 April 2015 to 6 March 2016 at Stedelijk Museum Lier.


The year-long exhibition entitled Saint³. Force of Habit. Jimmy Kets in Bruegel Land looks at religious traditions such as processions, kermises and pilgrimages in works from the collections of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA) and the Municipal Museums.

Photographer Jimmy Kets supplements this presentation with reportages of surviving traditions relating to saints.

However ancient and pious the theme, what we essentially see in the photographs in Saint³ is ourselves and how we relate to the past today. What Kets captures is that second in human nature that normally passes us by unnoticed.

A new edition of the Rubensbulletin is available online.

The Rubensbulletin is a web-based journal with scientific contributions on the oeuvre of Peter Paul Rubens and his assistants. The three contributions are by restorer Eva Van Zuien and researchers Paul Vandenbroeck and Koen Bulckens.

Van Zuien describes the restoration of and the preliminary research on Rubens’ Holy Family with the Parrot. Vandenbroeck focuses on the Solomonic column in Rubens’ oeuvre and puts it in a wider anthropological context and Bulckens focuses on the way Rubens’ and Rembandt’s works are being catalogued by the Corpus Rubenianum and the Rembrandt Research Project.
