The image of the knight has had a strong appeal to our imagination since childhood. Romantics dream of a knight riding a beautiful white horse. What does this archetypal symbol stand for? Do the knightly values of self-restraint and loyalty still have any meaning today? Curator Joanna De Vos is off on an exploratory quest, creating an international group exhibition in Gaasbeek Castle cenring on the tribute paid by contemporary artists to the idealistic interpretation of the knight. The works of art, comprising drawings and paintings as well as sculptures, installations and films, accompany the visitor to an imaginary world that evokes the spirit of chivalry. The work will include themes such as the self-portrait of the artist as knight, the female knight, the knight's suit of amour and decoration, his or her character, the castle as a place of residence and the jousting game.
