RUUP Wooden Megaphones are to be installed in Tournay Solvay Regional Park, the hidden pearl of Brussels, as part of the official Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU cultural programme. For a couple of years now, three gigantic wooden megaphones have been standing deep in the forest on the edge of Estonia, scattered between dark-barked fir trees. This is RUUP, designed by young Estonian architect Birgit Õigus and built by students from Estonian Academy of Arts, which is looking for a way to help us all notice and listen to the sounds of the forests. RUUP offers a place to rest your feet, as well as your mind. Sit, sleep, think, and listen to the sounds of nature in the city. RUUP is an open library with just one book – nature with its endless assortment of audiobooks, that is always renewing itself. Since 1992, the Espace Européen pour la Sculpture has been providing visual artists from different EU countries more visibility in Brussels, at the heart of Europe. Every year, artists from the country holding the rotating presidency are invited to use the space in Tournay Solvay Park in Watermael-Boitsfort, and this year, Estonia will be given this opportunity. RUUPs will be installed in the park at the end of June 2017, as a hidden pearl for nature lovers in Brussels. 23.06-10.09.2017 Regional Tournay Solvay Park in Watermael-Boitsfort Brussels, Belgium Free admission www.ruup.ee www.eesculpture.blogspot.be
