Weekend at Charlie's brought together seven ensembles of artworks from the collection of the late Belgian architect Charles Vandenhove, as well as other private and public sources. The interconnecting ensembles allowed for multiple readings and unexpected juxtapositions, reflecting the unique and surprising composition of the Vandenhove collection.

A complementary publication was designed by me, existing of a gathering of separate a5-cards, showing the seven ensembles. Each ensemble was accompagnied by a curatorial text, written by the participants of Curatorial Studies 2018/2019.

Weekend at Charlie's was developed within the seminar "Making things public", taught by Wouter Davidts as part of Curatorial Studies, a partnership between KASK-School of Arts, Ghent University and S.M.A.K.
