A physical and mental creative space that grows organically and moves to the rhythm of its neighbourhood.
A former stable located in a wasteland at the Dam area in the north of Antwerp is being transformed into a temporary workspace by and for twenty artists, artisans and freebooters led by Rooftoptiger. We are sharing the responsibility for building the infrastructure from recycled materials and choose to create a workshop without partitions using everybody’s artistic input. Every year the artists engage in a local community arts project.
The Archipel artists are: Atelier Recup, Bad van Marie, Carl Cappelle, Compagnie Brulschaap/De Bovenkamer, Compagnie Frieda, Davey Waxx Verhaeghe, Dirk Van Dyck, Inge Kerfs, James Lethbridge, Jasper Derkinderen, Jesse Frans, KunstZ, Marthe Van Dessel, Martijn Megens, Pieter Bostoen, Rooftoptiger, Sabbo Verleye, Senne Suls, Tim Vanhentenryk.
