Lode Geens is opening Corridor Gallery on Friday evening with an exhibition by Werner Mannaers. The gallery is located at Leopoldstraat, where Next Door Gallery use to be. Lode by now worked in every department of the arts, he studied art and i think made a few artworks, he was a currator, published artist editions, works at a museum, was an assistent for various visual artists.. And unrelated he has also ran a huge fair, some sort of horror fair or something.. Curious for his new adventure!

Every year i seem to see less and less at Kraak Festival, partly because a healthy meal and lots of unhealthy drinks seem to take over my last braincells. Gaute Granly was grand! Recovering is always pathetic.
