Circle of Life

Circle of Life is the final part of Lieve Blancquaert’s global quest for humankind and its rituals, traditions, and customs. Her exceptional projects Birth Day, Wedding Day, and Last Day, about how the world welcomes its children, how and why we wed, and the way in which we depart this world, were a huge success.’

Circle of Life has become a gripping multimedia story which covers these three major life stories in a surprising manner. 

Photographs and moving images from the past decade make this exhibition an unforgettable world tour seen through the amazing gaze of a special traveller.

An audioguide, voiced by Lieve herself, takes you through the expo. (available in nl, fr, en)
