Following the destruction of their abbey in Drongen in the 16th century, the Norbertines converted this chapel in late-Gothic style – which had up to that point served as a shelter – into a temporary abbey, where they stayed until the late 17th century. Under the French regime, the chapel became a warehouse.

The 'Drongenhofkapel' project brings together works of art from three Ghent artists (Dirk Braeckman, Berlinde De Bruyckere and Wim Delvoye) and will also bring other art forms together in this sacred space. The purity and simplicity of the chapel have an inspiring effect. The project wants to invite other art forms to a dialogue, which can touch the visitor in an intense way.
