April 2017 - Belgian studio Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, an artistic collaboration between architects Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh, created the “Labyrinth” structure. Measuring 37.5 square meters, the piece focuses on the experience of space.

Installed at the C-mine arts centre—a former coal mine in the industrial city of Genk, Belgium—the architects used 186 tons of 5-millimeter-thick by 5-meter-tall steel plates that engulf the installation’s visitors.

Various geometric cut-out frames confront the viewer with forms that balance the sense of both barrier and space.

Visitors can view the maze from a much simpler perspective by ascending the hoist tower above the former coal mine’s elevator shaft.
