For years the residents of the Stationsstraat have pursued action to safeguard the historical mansions in their street. Now they want to temporarily unlock these pieces of urban heritage for artists and visitors. During three weekends they present “the chambers”, the most beautiful rooms of the houses, open to the public and at the same time placing Ninove on the map as a place for contemporary art in the (semi-) public space. Fourteen artists create new works or integrate existing works in these otherwise private rooms.
Thanks to the residents, the artists, Erik Neven, Ben Schokkaert, Paul Lagring, Koninklijke fanfare De Verbroedering, Heidi Pollier and the Locomotief staff.
