Jimmy Kets, Sint-Gummarus 2

The latest edition of Breugel Land in Lier presents photographs by Jimmy Kets.

The year-long exhibition entitled Saint³ - Force of Habit 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 Lier (Stedelijke Musea Lier). Kets supplements this presentation with reportages of surviving traditions relating to saints. Like Pieter Bruegel, the photographer has a keen eye when it comes to reproducing everyday life.
