A duo of young Belgian artists, Erika Schillebeeckx and Justine de Moriamé, presents their contemporary tapestries in the medieval setting of the Adornes estate. On the borderline between figurative and abstract, the works submerge you into the heart of a world in perpetual transformation, between structure and chaos, luxuriance and horror, emotion and materialism. Traditional techniques are being updated and enhanced with new and entirely "green" technologies. This new exhibition forms part of the entry-paying access to the domain and runs from the 4th of May until the 31st of August. Open Mondays through to Saturdays, 10 am to 5 pm. Closed on Sundays and on public holidays.

A brand new book about the Adornes Domain

THE ADORNES DOMAIN AND THE JERUSALEM CHAPEL IN BRUGES, A UNIQUE HERITAGE OF THE MIDDLE AGES, by Dr Véronique Lambert. The title of the book confirms that this historical site is not only an exceptional monument but also a heritage which encompasses the history of the Adornes lineage. And it was high time to extend the vision of the domain. This book does not just outline the Adornes period of the 15th and 16th century, but it also goes beyond with a timeline incorporating the de Draeck and the de Limburg Stirum lineage to this day. The history of the buildings, the renovation project and the successive re-affectations are also recounted with an additional focus on the principal artworks still present at the domain. It also includes a suggested “walking route” to discover the different places in the Bruges which relate to the Adornes family. Author and History professor Véronique Lambert is graced with the art of combining academic rigour with a lively and dynamic writing style which, together with attractive images, has produced a book which is a delight to read. From the passionate story of historical figures presented “warts and all”, the reader will discover a family legend, a Flemish town and a panoply of international power struggles that marked the 15th century. English, Dutch and English versions available. 112 pages, 22 x17 cm, soft cover with flaps. Edited by AUP (Amsterdam University Press). Available at the price of €17,50 at the Adornes Domain shop and now in bookshops. Order a copy now at
