Doors of Perception is a mural installation by the Ghent artist duo Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert in two parts. On the wall next to the entrance of SLAC (Dirk Boutslaan 60-62) you can find the Winter intervention. At Abdij van Park, near the vegetable garden, the Summer version is installed. Two line-drawn figures with triangle heads, abstract versions of Robbert&Frank, open a door to a summer and winter landscape with bisons. The bison or American buffalo symbolizes abundance, and the merging power between the spiritual and earthly. In the mural at the Abbey, the trial-headed figures are accompanied by a dancing gang gathered to celebrate the solstice.

Doors of Perception are part of the exhibition project As You Think So Shall You Become @ STUK Leuven (BE). Also part of that same project is the installation Go Away Sorrow of the World, presented in Sluispark until June 22, 2022.

Curator: Karen Verschooren / With the support of City of Leuven, SLAC, Abdij van Park
