History

In 1995 the sculpture garden, located on an estate of about 25 hectares, was opened to the public. Various artists were invited to make a site-specific sculpture, like the British artist Antony Gormley and the Dutch artist Armando. Our goal is to emphasis the different aspects of the landscape, and to integrate the sculptures as much as possible in the surrounding landscape. The location of the artworks is often determined in dialogue with the artists. Throughout the years sculpture collection has been constantly growing. For example, Berlinde de Bruyckere realised her first outdoor sculpture as a commission of the collection.
