Au bout de mes rêves
AU BOUT DE MES RÊVES
Since 2007, lille3000 has presented a number of high-profile contemporary art exhibitions in an exceptional cultural venue: the Tripostal in Lille.
Extending regular invitations to major collections, lille3000 will host the Vanhaerents Art Collection, based in Belgium, for autumn 2023. The exhibition follows in the footsteps of collaborations with the Collection Pinault in 2007 (Passage du Temps), the Saatchi Gallery (La Route de la Soie) in 2009, with the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (Collector) in 2011, gallery-owner Emmanuel Perrotin’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2013 (Happy Birthday, Galerie Perrotin 25 ans), a 2014 exhibition featuring 18 Flemish collectors (Passions Secrètes, Collections privées flamandes), in 2017, on the 40th anniverary of the Centre Pompidou (Performance !), in 2021 with the Design museum Gent (Colors, etc.) and most recently with the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (Les Vivants) as part of 2022’s Utopia. These exhibitions have brought together some of the biggest names on the international scene alongside emerging artists. They tell us about the guest collectors’ stories and passions, offering an insight into the questions and contestations that the world inspires in them.
The Vanhaerents Art Collection is one of Belgium’s largest private collections of contemporary art. For Walter Vanhaerents, “J’irai au bout de mes rêves” (I will follow my dreams to the end), inspired by the eponymous song release by Jean-Jacques Goldman in 1982, is about accepting risk and ongoing commitment.
Reflecting this collection, Au bout de mes rêves*, showcased over the three floors of the Tripostal, is intentionally strong and socially aware, while still conveying a sense of light and wonder during these sombre times.
Where dreams exist, there is hope for change or a new beginning. Here the dream of a collection compiled with passion over the last 50 years has been achieved.
