Sleeping with an art couple…*

* sort of. There are many ways to experience art. You can go to an art museum, read a book about its history or its philosophy, or you can decide to go to art school. Sofie Lachaert and Luc Dhanis offer guests the possibility of literally stepping into a contextual work of art, of being enveloped in the fascinating world of the duo of artists. Join the dialogue between the mundane and the sublime, and experience the phenomenal inner workings of boundary breaking art objects in Tielrode, Belgium

Don't be afraid of White
Freedom of space
Art or daily life?

The working and living habitat of the duo of artists is embedded in a beautiful riverscape and situated on the site of a reinvigorated shipyard. Tracks of the industrial past were laboriously processed in the contemporary setting it is today. This crossbreeding of the here and now with the past makes for a transcendental atmosphere. It entails an open invitation to reflect on the perennial antipodes of the strangeness of the vibrantly esthetic and the soothing feeling of the familiar. In the accommodation you get inspired in its original etymological meaning, as a seemingly effortless symbiosis of art and artist, of craft and craftsman, of experience and environment. Be moved, step into the experience and “sleep with eyes wide open” in an oasis of tranquility. You will sleep and live in a setting of highly qualitative work of primarily Berlgian artists, designers and artisans, a special mélange of various art forms that makes for an unabridged experience. The ‘one and only suite’ offers a wonderful sleeping accommodation. A great, grand bed made up with the finest Belgian linen, the bathroom with a rainfall shower and Japanese bathtub and accompanying rooms add up to one big Wunderkammer, designed and arranged with a keen eye for even the smallest detail.

The workshop, a spacious breakfast space bathing in subtle northern light, a shelter with a view of the wide and semi-wild garden and an impressive loft space with high windows that give a view on the 17th century chapel of Tielrode: all these spaces are freely accessible to guests. In the hospitable atmosphere of the venue the couple can arrange for a specific experience that transcends the mundane. Their personalized approach delivers a service tailored to your needs, you will be regaled and pampered. On demand, they invent a specific scenography so you can be an active part of the art. Another option is to invite a party, your family and friends, to join the festive table: a perfect opportunity for celebrating something or someone special, enjoy time together at a leisurely pace and gain an unforgettable moment to cherish.
