Located at twenty minutes at southern of Brussels, in the lovely Solvay Park, the farm of the La Hulpe Castle houses the Folon Foundation. Designed and created by Jean-Michel Folon, it represents more than 40 years of creative work in a lively and original scenography, designed by the Belgian artist himself. He opens his life book for us .. Through the chapters the visitor discovers the multiple facets of his art and his world; an exhibition of more than 500 works with watercolours, silkscreen-prints, etchings, posters, objects, stained glass, sculptures, Music, movies, optical effects, animated an interactive tour: one penetrates into an giant book, enters into the head of the blue man, loses oneself in mirror games, finds endless posters, discovers the secrets of the artist's studio and ends the tour under a myriad of stars. After your visit dawdle through the 220 hectares of the green Solvay estate, with its varied landscapes enriched by quite lakes and amazing flora and fauna. The Folon Foundation also invites you to organise your conferences, seminars, receptions and other meetings in an area with real charm on the first floor of the farm. You can also make arrangements for evening events and visit the museum with experienced guides, in the language of your choice.
For refreshments and snacks, we propose flexible menus and the creative touch of Caterer "Vandevelde", who supplies a large choice of bio products and original suggestions, together with classic arrangements.
