SMAK Ghent opens tonight with the latest solo exhibition by Rinus Van de Velde in which the artist shows a series of nine new, monumental drawings on canvas, based on the 1920’s screenplay ‘Donogoo Tonka, ou Les miracles de la science’ by French writer Jules Romains.

 The museum space is transformed into a giant décor with the story of the geographer who actually ends up building the phantom city he claims to have discovered visualised through a nine-sequence storyboard of image and text in which the artist himself portrays the protagonist of the story he aims to tell the visitors.
