The exhibition project Middle Gate II – The Story of Dymphna is a collaboration between M HKA (Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp) and the cultural centre de Werft in Geel. Middle Gate II is the follow up to the exhibition Middle Gate, curated by Jan Hoet in Geel in 2013. The exhibition concept is closely tied to the legend of the holy Dymphna, saint of the possessed, the mentally ill and patroness against epilepsy and insanity. The legend of Dymphna shares a strong connection to the identity of Geel, "the charitable city".

Vadim Fishkin explores the relationship between art and science with photographs, drawings, installations and sculptures. Many of Fishkin's works mimic physical phenomena, attempting to make natural processes, which transcend ordinary perception, measurable and capable of representation, in this way transforming them into something that can be controlled or managed. With cutting, theatrical and at the same time light-hearted humour, Fishkin alludes to technology's futility as metaphor for the absurdity of human desire and ambition.
