Looking for Lodging? It’s Alimentary!

If you’re ever in Belgium and money is such that you need to um… pinch pennies — then try the lodgings at CasAnus.

This is one of those indescribable properties that leaves people stunned when you say that you slept in a giant model of a human intestine. From the initial Why? to the usual How and Where, and of course eventually, What was it like??

It’s an Art Sculpture – created by Joep Van Lieshout and there’s a normal double bed inside. There is an electric point, heater, as well as a shower and toilet at the other end of the room, with hot water.

When UHOTW visited the curtains weren’t fitted, but even so, we slept ok. Breakfast was taken in the nearby main building.

“Our exhibition space does not aim to be an oasis. Our presentation is unfinished, in motion, unpolished, contradictory, untidy, complex, inharmonious, living and unmonumental, like the world outside of the museum walls. You will find no flamboyant sensational buildings here, but rather, a refreshing, unpretentious place to look at art and a subtle criticism of the art world”.
