The Butterfly Effect hosts art exhibition: I Love You So Much by Breedlijn

Things are buzzing at The Butterfly Effect! Our brand new space nearly just opened and has already welcomed its first guests, wildly taking over the space. Meet Breedlijn!

The Antwerp based art collective Breedlijn took over the entire building to showcase some of its finest artwork. We’re proud to host the venue of the 4th edition ‘I love you so much’ and open our doors of The Butterfly Effect to the art-loving community of Antwerp and beyond.

During 3 weeks you can discover the work of 9 international and upcoming artists showcasing their work in dialogue with their unique location: Marcel Sommer, Besmir Latifi, Emma Bellengé, Sytze Apers, NielsVaes, Joke Van den Hof, An Claes, Juliettede Graaf, Ines Thora, S.C.R.O.T.A., Felicitas Butt. Here’s why you’ll love it. Breedlijn founder Frederik Schnieder says that the ”I Love You So Much“ art festival presents his heart and that of the artists. Together they ignite a love experience in real life by celebrating art, inspire people and connecting ceramics, textiles and drawing to build a strong love community.

You can visit the exhibition for the last time this weekend (21 tot 22 October) and enjoy some live jazz, folk and balkan inspired acoustic music while getting some ink on your skin. Yes, that’s right! Six artsy tattoo artists will be present to introduce their universe to you (if you’re not already).

To summarize it in Frederik’s words: I want to thank Cocom very much for this opportunity and hope that with the show of Breedlijn we can really show what we do. We are still an unsubsidized association, but if we bring many (good) hands together, we can really create ‘magic’. We couldn’t think of a better match! Thanks Breedlijn for sharing your universe and connecting communities with us!
