And all the untilled air between is the second exhibition in the series, Vestibulum. This title refers to the place where the exhibitions take place: the former entrance to the museum in the building designed by architect Henry van de Velde and opened in 1938. Every six months, the museum invites an artist to create a presentation for this now rather undefined space, which in some way relates to the place, the history of the museum or the collection.
Lucas Lenglet took the title of his installation, And all the untilled air between, from the poem Prologue: The birth of architecture by W.H. Auden. The poem is about personal space, its demarcation and the feeling of discomfort when someone oversteps that boundary, as well as it’s about the ways in which houses offer protection to those who are inside while at the same time excluding those who are not inside.
