Three years ago David Altmejd (°1974, Montreal) finished a series of monumental mirror sculptures. These six giants were first exhibited at the opening of the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art. They were designed as classically-inspired colossi. Later on they became part of the Vanhaerents Art Collection in Brussels. In 2009, the giants traveled to Le Magasin in Grenoble and Les Abattoirs in Toulouse.

The first collection presentation Disorder in the House contained some 70 pieces from 30 different international artists, that Walter Vanhaerents himself selected. This first exhibition mainly drew on works ranging from the late 90s until the present day. It focused on young artists who have carried on with the legacy of pop art. The exhibition was set up so that the positioning of the works allowed visitors to construct multiple cross-over interpretations.

A giant star of fluorescent lights. A big traffic sign collapsed. A green lamppost leaning in shaky balance over a beam. A red candle flickering in a phone booth. The intervention of British artist Mark Handforth (1969, Hong Kong) in the first project room exhibition of the Vanhaerents Art Collection gathered four of his recent works: Stardust (2005), Silver Sign (2004), Green (2005) and Red (2005).
