This assemblage artwork by ANNA AGTMA is her phantasy of the Temple of Human Passions in Brussels. The pavilion in the form of a Greek temple was built by Victor Horta in 1896 in the Cinquantenaire Park. It was designed to serve as a permanent showcase for a large marble relief "Human Passions" by Jef Lambeaux, depicting inhibited nudes in any matter of carnal delight. It caused a scandal. That's why only three days after its first public presentation the open building was concealed from public view until these days.
The Anna AGTMA Pavilion of Passions shows nudes and a peeper, probably Magritte, hidden under his hat.
