Un chat dans les nuages
About this work
In 2012, invited by the Museum of Contemporary Arts – MAC’s, Grand-Hornu to create an original work for the exhibition “Le grand Atelier” (designed specifically for children), Guy Rombouts presented this photograph of a cat behind the transparent wall of a window. The curious shape created by the outline of the image is determined by the translation of the title of the work: “A Cat in the Clouds”, written on the basis of the Azart alphabet created by the artist with his wife Monika Droste who died in 1998.

Guy Rombouts (1949) is een Belgische kunstenaar die in Antwerpen woont en werkt (BE).
The MAC’s is housed within the former Grand-Hornu colliery, a monument of European industrial heritage that was designated as UNESCO world heritage in 2012. Since the museum opened in 2002, it has welcomed over a million visitors, produced more than 85 exhibitions and promoted numerous artists from the region. Thanks to such major international artists as Anish Kapoor, Christian Boltanski, Guiseppe Penone and Tony Oursler, who presented their first major Belgian exhibitions here, the reputation of the MAC’s now extends well beyond Belgium’s borders. Drawing inspiration from the unique architecture and history of the Grand-Hornu site, its collection explores themes that have caught the attention of numerous contemporary artists, including memory, technology and community. Every day, the MAC’s offers free guided visits to its exhibitions. The entry ticket also provides access to the historic site of the former colliery and the design exhibitions organized by the CID, the Centre for Innovation and Design.
