Voici des Fleurs is an exhibition contaminated with the artistic legacy of Akarova (1904-1999), a celebrated Bruxelloise of the interwar years who devoted her life entirely to music, dance, choreography, painting and sculpture. La Loge invites contemporary artists to exhibit along Akarova's work and to freely relate to her ideas and production dynamics.  Voici des Fleurs looks at art and life as a set of relations, exploring the production dynamics at play in contemporary practices, the principle of gesamtkunst as opposed to artistic purity and medium specificity, and the networks of relationships that produce and are produced by an oeuvre.

Through a diverse constellation of interdisciplinary bodies of work comprising film, voice, painting and performance, the exhibition considers ideas of self-affirmation, feminism, autonomy, and artistic integrity, at times taking recourse to the historical avant-garde, traditional crafts and the synthesis of the arts.
