is an exhibition space founded in 2019 by Sandra Meilunaite & Dilum Coppens. After opening up their studio and adjoining space for an exhibition under the name "BETWEEN (STAGE)", they decided to keep the ball rolling, renovate the room and use it as an artist-run exhibition space for young and emerging artist. By hosting regular exhibitions for artists trying to do what they love, they hope to show Brussels the fresh young faces of promising creators, and broaden both the artists’ as their own network.
Our open call for "beauty / ?" has ended, but expect more to come soon.

NEW DATES! WELCOME BACK TO K.L.8.!
For their first exhibition at their new exhibition space K.L.8, Sandra Meilunaite and Dilum Coppens chose 23 artists to show work around the theme of “beauty”.
With the severe cultural budget cuts made in Flanders, they made the decision to open up their own artist-run exhibition space for young and beginning artists. And what better way to start everything off with a comment made by MP Peter De Roover, who reacted against the reaction of the cultural sector. De Roover claims that “we used to have artists who had a better eye for beauty”. Sandra and Dilum, however, do not believe so and went out looking for artists to show a very diverse vision on contemporary beauty.
And they sure did find it. From trashy to luxury, vague to direct, subtle to in-your-face, humane to mechanical, the show will be filled with as much aesthetics and visions as possible.
Ranging from figurative painting to experimental video and installation, 23 artists from Belgium and abroad were selected and will show work at the exhibition “beauty / ?”.
Beauty is when there is an investigation into the inner interest. The interest in everything our eyes can see or what our bodies can feel. The research materializes itself into an image, through the hands and minds of the various identities that are scattered throughout the world. When they come together, we understand that everyone's perspective is different - if you stand on one side of a box, you won't see the other side. The beauty comes into play when multiple sides are exposed, and there are no more boundaries.
We hope you’ll be part of all this beauty.
And be sure to keep an eye out on the event and our page, because we will be posting sneak peaks of the artists and their art.
