Artists were inspired by the tragic and poetic power of water, personified by Ophelia, a character from Shakespeare's work. Jonas Vansteenkiste invited eleven artists to be inspired by this theme. The works touch different facets of Ophelia and enter into dialogue with each other in the historic building on the Leie.
