    Floating mountaintop castle on a giant ballon by Ahmed Ögüt in Ghent, (recalling the surreal image of the painting 'la chateau des pyrenees' by rene magritte)

  • Suzy Beal

    The Kurdish/Turkish artist Ahmet Ogüt has made this incredible installation for the Belgian art festival, TRACK taking place in Ghent. The work consists of a floating mountaintop castle perched on top of a helium balloon. Most online sources aren't crediting what is probably the image source, Magritte's "Le Château des Pyrénées" (1959). See http://french.chass.utoronto.ca/fcs195/surrealism.html for more info.

    castle of vooruit by ahmet oeguet. From afar it looks like a castle on a mountain, but it's actually an outdoor installation of a massive helium-filled balloon. Kurdish-Turkish artist Ahmet Ögüt created this sculpture for the a Belgian art festival entitled 'TRACK.' The balloon is at a height of 11 meters with a diameter of 8 meters. The building that sits on top is a replicate of the city's historic public arts center.
