The Enchanted Garden 10th anniversary

Organisation:

Eligibility:

'The Enchanted Garden 2023' is an international art exhibition in a structured, natural landscape garden full of water and contrasts. It is located on the language border, between Jodoigne, Hoegaarden and Tienen, halfway between Brussels, Liège and Namur and on the 'RAVEL' cycle route connecting Tienen, Hoegaarden with Jodoigne and Namur.

In 2023 we're organising it for the tenth time! Many celebrations are planned.

The 2023 (work in process) theme 'Movements' express all type of (e)motions, e.g. physical as in wind, water and animated sculptures, (e)motions suggested in artworks as sculptures of moving humans, animals. Sculptures that combine different materials are highly recommended, e.g. glass combined with metal, bronze combined with ceramics, ... 

All sculptures must be weatherproof during the summer (rain, wind,...). During winter, protection is allowed.

At least half of the visitors come for the garden with its many facets, such as ponds, brooks, meadows, woods, the 'Secret Garden', labyrinth, terraces, rose hedges and the numerous benches to relax with a view on the countryside of Haspengouw. There are no exotic plants, no 'cultivars', but a rich variety of indigenous, spontaneously grown wild plants (wild orchid in abundance).
It is not for nothing that it is called a structured, natural, water-rich landscape garden full of contrasts.

Artworks with a relationship to nature are our favourites.
