We are excited to announce the new campaign image that artist Koen Vanmechelen created for the 2023 season of LABIOMISTA. The artwork re-opens again on April 1st under the theme Movement.
In the photo, a ballerina dancer embraces two white swans. Subdued, the trio awaits the pooling of their energy. The image refers to this year’s central theme Movement. At the same time, it also hints at the swans living at the back of the park, on the pond of Protected Paradise.
Two wild swans
Entwined around a dancing figure
Their movement spread out in
Patterns of beauty and purity
Unity in diversity in duality
Energy to take off
Its only evolutionary option: moving towards change
Where will they take it
Which place and time
For a mysterious renaissance
Illuminating the darkness in all its dimensions
This is the fifth season of LABIOMISTA, as the park opened in 2019. The ever-evolving artwork takes you into the unique vision of artist Koen Vanmechelen and his life's work on identity, fertility & biocultural diversity.
Opening 2nd April 2023

The photo was created at Studio Leyssen Photograph
The swans died a natural death
