Antwerp cruise terminal gets a second life as a work of art in Verbeke Foundation

The old aisle that stood on the Scheldt quays at the level of the Zuiderterras was dismantled between Christmas and New Year and has now been rebuilt in the Verbeke Foundation open-air museum in Kemzeke. Thousands of tourists came ashore through the aisle every year. Now the construction of 15 meters high stands between the trees near the E34.

Artist Koen Deprez uses the aisle as a skeleton for a new construction. “We are going to assemble all kinds of discarded industrial constructions on it,” he says. “That could be anything. At the moment we have wind turbines ready and a five-ton silo. There will also be ski lifts on the aisle.”
