Kairos Castle

The art of the moment

Dani Karavan, Evi Keller, Susumu Shingu, Nicolas de Staël, Antonella Zazzera

Gaasbeek Castle, Belgium

” Kairos Castle ” is a contemporary art exhibition on ” the opportune moment “, with Dutch philosopher and author Joke Hermsen as curator. Kairos is the god of ” the opportune moment “, who provides unexpected insights and offers new opportunites. He interrupts measurable time and represents all those inspired moments of beauty and vigour that make life intense. Kairos is the time that we are.

With this exhibition, Joke Hermsen shows Gaasbeek Castle as a place where time is ” stacked “, where this other time is experienced. Together with a team of artists she sets out in search of traces of the inspiring ” Kairos time “. With word and image, sound and colour she is seeking for muted time, for reflection, inspiration and movement.
