Varini’s work will be on an exibit at the Unie Hasselt-Genk in Belgium. De Unie Hasselt-Genk is a new and suprising art project that is currently being realised between the two characteristic Belgian Limburg centre cities of Hasselt and Genk. Artists, socio-cultural organisations and residents bring attention to the wide diversity of this twin area through a unique range of events, projects and artworks, presented throughout the summer. As of 5 October, De Unie Hasselt-Genk will become part of the surroundings of the area in the form of a permanent art route. As of 21 June, you can visit De Unie Hasselt-Genk, an art route that literally connects the two cities together. Follow the route and discover the artworks of national and international artists in the public space of Hasselt and Genk. At more than 20 locations on the route this summer, you can also experience exhibitions and other activities. For this summer programme, various cultural institutions in the two cities worked together. A dozen national and international artists translate the unique urban environment, the specific landscape and the strong cultural history of the two characteristic Belgian Limburg centre cities of Hasselt and Genk into new and (semi-) permanent works of art, set in special locations within the open space.
For De Unie Hasselt-Genk, Felice Varini realises a painting on the roofs and facades of 99 buildings in the city centre of Hasselt: ‘Trois ellipses ouvertes en désordre’. The composition can only be seen in its entirety from one particular vantage point, the Sky Lounge of the Radisson Blu Hotel. Following the route of De Unie across town, however, visitors will be confronted with a number of fragments of Varini’s work. Every fragment is an attraction in itself. Visits possible from 21st June to 5th October 2014.
