Australian’s God’s Eye View
"And while the artists tried to be as geographically accurate as possible, they admitted that parts of the Garden Eden are from Belgium."
Potential Estate presented at the 1st Brussels Biennial, from October 19th 2008 till January 4th 2009. "The biennial represents a first step in a larger project designed as a trans-national endeavour that will unfold in two steps until 2010."

CABINET ANCIAUX was named after Marie-Adèle Anciaux (1887-1983) also known as Mary Smiles. Anciaux was a libertarian who participated at early pedagogical experiments along with her husband Stephen Mac Say (1883-1972) teacher, beekeeper, stallholder and author. In 1928, Mac Say published From Fourier to Godin the first complete survey on Godin’s Familistère, the only successful and long lasting utopian community based on Fourier’s communalist theories. The Familistère located in Northern France was a philosophical, social and architectural utopia that lasted a century. Fourier’s writings about turning work into play influenced the young Karl Marx, a former Brussels resident.
