Ghent installation and video artist Honoré d'O draws inspiration from the towel in the annunciation scene on one of the outer panels of the Ghent Altarpiece. Themes hidden in the detail of the towel include care, preparation, intimacy, silence, purity and cleanliness.

Honoré d'O uses these themes to make a Van Eyck installation and immerse visitors in the story of the annunciation. His installation highlights the characteristics of church architecture to evoke these feelings with the visitor. Contemporary media such as photographs, sculptures and videos are in turn intended to focus attention. It will be a unique exhibition tailored to St James' Church. Classical concerts by various musicians and ensembles will liven up the installation and enhance it musically on a regular basis.
