The exhibitions' titles relate to themes in the Vervoordt Foundation's art collection, but in a larger sense, how the company looks at art. For example, the exhibition, Artempo, arose from a belief in the spirit of natural materials. To live surrounded by objects from all time periods is to share this connection. A desire to share knowledge and explore evolving ways of looking at art became the start of ten thrilling years of exhibitions at Palazzo Fortuny.
Hundreds of works of art were installed in each exhibition by dozens of artists, and the number of visitors numbered in the tens of thousands. Significant partnerships were made with contemporary artists, foundations, museums, galleries, and curators to benefit the public at-large.
In , the company moved to new home known as Kanaal, located in Wijnegem, twenty minutes east of Antwerp. Originally built in , the vast site was a former distillery and malting complex. The existing architecture included brick warehouses and concrete grain silos situated along the banks of the Albert Canal. A plan was conceived to make Kanaal a cultural and residential center, a process that began in the early s.

In , construction was officially completed. The Kanaal is home to nearly private apartments with public spaces, including a restaurant, surrounding courtyards, and gardens. Sharing the environment with residents, businesses, and visitors, the company added workshops, studios, an auditorium, as well as permanent art installations and temporary exhibition spaces for the Axel Vervoordt Gallery.
Boris created the Axel Vervoordt Gallery in Boris chose to open the gallery in the same exact place where his father had mounted exhibitions for Uecker and Jef Verheyen in the s. This continued a path of more than 40 years of working closely with artists. The gallery expanded to Asia in with a space in central Hong Kong in the Entertainment Building.
In , the Antwerp gallery moved to a new space at Kanaal, opening with a monumental retrospective of Kazuo Shiraga. Most notably, the foundation was responsible for producing a series of exhibitions at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice from Through his work as a curator and the foundation's president, Axel's goal is to share his views on the transformative qualities of art. The family strongly believes in art's inherent power to change lives and enhance perspectives on the past, present, and future.
Built over a period of four decades, the foundation's art collection includes over works and ranges from ancient archaeology to contemporary art. In , Axel co-founded Inspiratum with renowned conductor Koen Kessels. Inspiratum is a not-for-profit membership group that seeks to share a passion for music with other admirers.
They started the group to share an enthusiasm for experiencing the highest quality live music in intimate settings to bring an appreciation for the beauty of musical excellence and artistic talent to a personal, human scale. Inspiratum produces monthly concerts throughout the year, in addition to organising annual membership trips throughout the world to attend performances, visit museums, private art collections, and engage with architecture.
Inspiratum also fosters artistic patronage and charity work. Members generously support young musicians in a variety of ways to boost their careers and provide them with a platform for their talent. Funds raised help to support promising musicians through scholarships, the organisation of masterclasses, and by providing performance opportunities. Inspiratum also writes out commissions, provides CD funding, and other necessary productional support.
The group is guided by a committee of key figures in the classical and contemporary music world. In the physical centre of the Kanaal site is a large building with a circular room that was historically used as a storage space for grain that arrived to the neighboring canal by boat.
To live with art is to allow art to live with you. The work is an immense dome lined with an intense, deep red pigment. As visitors stand underneath the dome and look at the shape and colour overhead, one has the sensation that you cannot feel or see the beginning or end of the space.
It feels limitless — like a glimpse of infinity. Initially inspired by a desire to live more alongside nature, the move also helped to solve necessary logistical challenges for the company. The growth in the early s made it necessary to have more space for the constantly-expanding inventory of art, furniture, and objects. Following an extensive two-year renovation, the family and company relocated to the castle's grounds and side buildings, which are located twenty-five minutes east of Antwerp.
The rooms reflect many periods and styles, and yet there is continuity as the atmosphere flows from one room to the next. Each room has its own character, purpose, and conveys distinct personality. Over the years, the family has hosted thousands of guests as a way of showing the emotion inherent in their work, which, as Axel often specifies, is difficult to describe in words. Close friends like Jef Verheyen and Professor Bernard Lietaer initially gave Axel books and lessons on the subjects and this knowledge was put to valuable use during the renovation process.
Axel was able to give body to his evolving ideas regarding proportion in the series exhibitions at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice as well, particularly with Proportio in The company participated in the influential Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris for the first time in This offered an important platform to share the Vervoordt aesthetic approach to art and design with an international audience.
