Garden Lucien Wercollier

neimënster has entrusted the design of the cloister garden - a place of prayer and meditation at the time when the abbey was inhabited by monks - to the French artist and landscape designer Agnès Daval to create a contemporary work. Stone benches, which refer to the garden benches of the sixteenth century, oppose in a ballet of strength and softness to the rounded arches of the abbey's windows. The benches rise from the ground to different heights offering, with the lines traced on the ground or carved in the stone, a subtle play of perspectives. The garden offers the visitor a space sheltered from view and a parenthesis out of time.
