Fourth edition of this unique event for the little ones. For 2 weekends, babies aged 6 months to 2 are welcome to discover interactive works and a variety of activities centred on artistic and sensorial experimentation. A chance for parents to take some time off from their busy scedules and share a special moment with their kids...


Nathalie Arnold : Magical Balls (Education atelier)

On a paper tapestry covered in black line drawings, soft balls drenched in all kinds of colours are placed. Through the act of pushing, throwing and breaking, the colours escape the balls and sprinkle all over the paper, leaving stains and traces… Colour in between the lines or create anarchy of colour: everything is allowed.

Alice Maffi and Cie des Trois Points : BRIGHT (Eeckman Room)

A reflective gold floor, plastic elements, sound, light and fabric appear and evolve in interaction with the artists and the participants. All-surrounding music accompanies the experience whilst the screens give the space structure whilst simultaneously inviting you for a game of hide and seek.

Bright presents itself in two shapes for My Baby: on one hand through the performative time on set intervals, and on the other through free, explorative time where babies take charge in the experience.

Valeria Ciavarella & Julie Duquesne : coloured trees (Project Room)

The babies paint cardboard trees that will create a forest throughout the space.

Nid de sons/Klankennest (Exhibition Room)

An installation made out of fabric, especially made to touch and explore musically… With Liesbeth Bodyn (vocals), Jenka Van Hoecke (fabric creation) and Barbara Ardenois (accordion).

Isabelle Chabepever : the Snails (Exhibition room or Project Room)

Observing the movement of these weird creatures: it seems a little like time stands still. The artist proposes to the babies a really simple, contemplative experience. It is an ode to the slowness that lies at the roots of trees, which symbolize might and prosperity.
