Since 2013, TLmag and Atomium have been partners telling all kind of interesting stories about this unique design object which is over the human scale and appears as an ovni in the Belgian cityscape. Let’s look at it from inside out and discover the potential creative exhibitions which can emerge out from those magic balls which should have been dismantled after the Universal Exhibition of 1958. WOW ! The progress is now... As a real life experience, Atomium is great and reveals its facets, not only by looking at the panorama but by discovering yourself in the reflection of the aluminum panels which are covering this crazy invention of the 1950s. But let’s speak about contemporary art and design, the interactive dimension of lighting up the spaces within these spheres. It’s just another way of looking at things which is revealed to the public. Soon there will be a major work of art which will come to life next to the Atomium and will bring even more dialogue with the millions of visitors that the Atomium welcomes each year. Surely the most visited ‘monument’ in the small land, Belgium!

In this extensive conversation between Christian Larsen and photographer Vincent Fournier, we learn about the aesthetics and interests behind ‘Brasília, A Time Capsule’, a series which investigates the architecture, landscape, and people of Brasília (Brazil).

Collaborator of our sister gallery Spazio Nobile, Matthias Kohn, developed a project about home, nature, and hospitality. In essence, the concept is based on the idea of placing furniture, most often used in private interior settings, thus adapted for this type of use, and suggesting comfort, in exterior settings, where the impact of the piece on the respective surroundings is allowed to develop fully.

If her concept for building an island bridge out of salt in the middle of the Dead Sea becomes a reality, artist Sigalit Landau will have created a symbol for connection and hope in the Middle East
