The city of Oostende chose for the production of a 200 images exhibition concerning the Ostend singer Arno.
A complete production including Prints, Mounting on Dibond, Suspension Systems, as well as hanging on site in the Venetian galleries.
Arno “The show of life” was born.

Photographer/ Curator Danny Willems and close friend of Arno, photographed him for 50 years, from 1972 until Arno's death in 2022. The exhibition is a series of images of various dimensions between 30 x 40 cm and 200 x 300 cm. All printed on our White Baryta paper, mounted on Dibond and provided with our unique concealed Aluframe on the back. This aluframe greatly facilitates installation and guarantees that the images hang perfectly horizontally. You can slide the images a little to the left or right. All images were hung in 2 working days in the presence of Danny Willems. Thanks to sophisticated preparation and skills.
