Sart-Tilman open-air museum opened on thè edge of Liege in 1977. There are no walls or wardens. The collection now comprises 110 pieces, pro-viding a perfect overview of open-air sculpture over thè past forty years. One sculpture by Emile Desmedt ("1956) from thè "Imago" series (2006) looks fantastic here, demonstrating how Desmedt shaped naturai forms in bronze, steel and ceramic.

The sculpture garden of UCL's medicai faculty in Brussels has been home to "Autoportrait" by Gérald Dederen ("1957) since 1993. This piece of exotic wood generates its energy from thè earth, symbolically stacking geological forms like pages from history. Dederen works thè space where his works of art are displayed as a poet of thè material. As you stroll through this open-air museum, each sculpture tells you its own story.
