The Rubens room recreated

FC Bergman is recreating the majestic Rubens room at the Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Since its opening in 1890, the museum has been home to the works of one of the greatest artists in history: Peter Paul Rubens. The central room was specifically designed for his canvases. In 2015, the room is being renovated – and the entire museum will be closed to the public until 2018.

For the company, who went to look at the stripped-down hall, it was a strange experience to see the Rubens room dismantled. It is as though the holes in the wall have pierced a hole in the reservoir of stories, which therefore feels as though it is slowly emptying out. For, as well as the artworks, the museum has been storing something else in its huge rooms all this time: a collection of human presences. An invisible archive of tranquil glances, musings and meditations. For over a century, people have been searching for repose and comfort in amongst these canvases. For an equally long time, time has stood still between these walls. And now, just as in 1944, when the first V-1 flying bomb fell on Antwerp, in the street adjacent to the museum, these walls have been opened up, and with them this exceptional, stilled time.

FC Bergman is recreating the Rubens room on location, and makes a careful attempt to staunch the wound. Het land Nod is both comical and melancholy, a sequence of powerful images inspired by the French cinema. From Jacques Tati to Jean-Luc Godard.’
