Visiting the exhibition “Sea of Tranquillity” is like being in a dream. This installation conceived by visual artist Hans Op de Becak (Turnhout, Belgium, 1969) evokes, at first the melancholic and misty atmosphere of a museum which has not yet been opened or which is being dismantled: silence and a mysterious mood overcome the viewer, who approaches a room recalling the half-light of old-fashioned museums and inviting the visitors an amazing tour of around watercolours, models, sculptures and showcases filled with smaller pieces.
