The Frison Horta Foundation is an organic, living bridge between East and West. The revival of heritage, culture and traditional craftsmanship through restoration, preservation and sharing is central to the Foundation’s philosophy. Open to the public for the first time since 1894, visitors can now discover the hidden gem that is the fully restored Horta winter garden. The completion of this restoration project is historic, a renaissance of this magnificent site replete with original furniture and decorative art.

For this very first in-house curatorial project Japanese artist Keisuke Matsuura (°1970, Kyoto) was given carte blanche to imagine a conversation between his own works and works by Leblanc selected from the Foundation's collection on the theme of natural energy fields. An immersive installation has been created to mark the occasion and can be experienced in the Foundation’s garden.
Keisuke Matsuura (Kyoto 1970) studied at Tama Art University in Tokyo and then studied with Christian Megert and Daniel Buren at the Düsseldorf Academy. During a trip to Europe, he discovered the artists of the ZERO movement whose spirit would mark him and influence his future research. Inspired also by Walter Leblanc, his work lends itself particularly to this dialogue between two generations.
A fully illustrated exhibition catalogue will be available at the Foundation.
Opening hours: from Monday until Saturday > 10:00 - 17:00
