There are still three months remaining of Mons’ stint as “European Capital of Culture” and the city will try to live up to its title during the next few weeks with a series of specific cultural and artistic activities coming from all corners of the world. This will include an installation by the Belgian artist Arne Quinze called The Passenger, which is making a comeback after some technical difficulties! This conceptual artist is known for his monumental artworks and is not afraid to take risks, which is why he is currently successfully exhibiting dozens of projects across the globe.
In his quest for a better world, Arne Quinze has currently settled in the city of Mons, where he is installing a construction of 86 m in length that symbolises the influx of inhabitants and their cultural evolutions since the 13th century. Constructed from wooden boards, The Passenger is a real urban forest that exercises a magnetic pull on the eyes and will be transforming the appearance of the city for the next 5 years.
This gives you enough time to discover the house of your dreams in the area, so you yourself can dwell at the heart of this urban forest!
