STALACTICA unfolds in the building of the former Quincaillerie Vander Eycken in Brussels. The 1878 building becomes a surreal garden containing a universe of objects, sculptures and paintings. STALACTICA is curated by the fictive curator Sven Jorgensen inspired by a character from the Zucker Abrahams and Zucker directed movie Top Secret (1984). 
The fictive curator leads the visitor alongside a labyrinth of several chapters in a cave-like installation of stalactites and plants made from paper: archeologic perspectives, utopian visions, mental escape sceneries, pessimistic expressions, fragility and destruction aswell a pseudo-logical concepts.
