About duality and infinity
GALERIJ 8, located on the Belgian coast in Knokke-Heist is an art gallery with a special touch of inspiration by Kristel Van den Eynden.
Galerij 8 symbolises the lemniscatic way of thinking and acting, the duality of the finite and the infinite. The inspiration of art often transcends this duality.

Joris Gaymans, ‘Met Geheven Hand’, Bronze, 47x34x6 (cm)
Joris Gaymans is a Dutch sculptor, artist and philosopher. Joris creates a near-death experience from the pure essence of being. This process means that his sculptures reflect silence and serenity. The smooth finish of his sculptures, his use of patinas and his personal style in general serve to emphasise the beauty and purity of the essence that is present in silence.
He tries to hold back his own thoughts, feelings and wishes as much as possible, so that he does not interpret the intuition but, instead it fills him.
Joris: “Art and living in the present are inseparably connected. Art can only arise in this living, present moment.”
