Les Marcel - Collection R. Patt

Marcel Mariën, Marcel Duchamp, Marcel Broodthaers, Marcel Vandeweyer... there is always a Marcel waiting in the wings! An engraving here, an object there or a painting elsewhere: Marcel rhymes with carousel. After constantly stumbling upon this name in their collection, Chantal and Serge R. Patt decided to turn it into a game. Using a combination of love and humour, they decided to celebrate this much-loved moniker. This is how their collection was given its biggest playground at Le Botanique, where all their historical pieces will be shown in a spontaneous, emotional and playful dialogue with some of their more contemporary pieces. Marcel is on fire! Come out and play: the more Marcel, the merrier.
