The work of the artist duo Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil harnesses concepts of theatricality to establish a lively dialogue with its surroundings. In keeping with the ideal of a democratic community that underpins their approach, Feipel and Bechameil aim to create work that can be appropriated by its users.
At first sight, the arrangement of synthetic volumes forming the monumental sculpture Moon in the Tree is evocative of a fallen tree. Its trunk and branches are represented by polished white cylinders, while its foliage is a more colourful congregation of geometric forms. The crescent shape of the tree forms an open-air lounge where visitors are invited to sit down: the vernacular of abstraction art takes on a convivial turn.

Martine Feipel was born in 1975 in Luxembourg. She lives and works in Brussels.
Jean Bechameil was born in 1964 in Paris. He lives and works in Brussels.
The two artists have been collaborating as a duo since 2008.
