Upcoming designer Damien Gernay currently shows a selection of his most recent work at Brussels’ Mazel Galerie. His fascinating creations are quite experimental and successfully intertwine art and design. We especially love his faux bois painting series which you can check out here.

Summer special: Yoga in the Park at Cinquantenaire

Thursday, 27 August, 18h30 Brussels

If you are not particularly a fan of doing your yoga exercises in a stuffy, sweaty room, this initiative is a great alternative. This Thursday MYoga’s Malin Hagman offers an outdoor class in the lovely Parc Cinquantenaire, giving total beginners and everyone else the chance to get some exercise under the open sky. By the way, there’s no set fee; but you’re encouraged to make a little donation.

From 28 to 30 August Thuin

Ever seen a concert on a floating stage? We neither. But this weekend you can finally do so at Scene sur Sambre, a three-day music bash near the little Wallonian town Thuin in a truly magical setting. The location not only boasts a stage swimming on water, but also the gorgeous Abbaye d’Aulne and beautiful greenery. The varied line-up of this 5th edition is especially attractive on the quite Belgian and rock-heavy Friday, when Recorders, Mud Flow and Sharko take the stage.

Opening: Has the World Already Been Made? at Harlan Levey Projects

Saturday, 29 August, 14-19h00 Brussels

The summer break is slowly coming to end, and a little bit before the almost overwhelming opening spree in September a few galleries already open their doors again this week. Harlan Levey Projects is one of them, inviting viewers to “Has the World Already Been Made?”, an exhibition showcasing the work of collaborating artists Haseeb Ahmed and Daniel G. Baird. Exploring the concept of replication, they make use of architectural conservation techniques while building a sculptural inventory made up of molds from many different locations around the globe.
