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".

The work of Edith Dekyndt is neither political, nor activist. In a simple and minimal way, more so out of respect and fascination for materials than as a conceptual statement, she incites a deeper awareness for the unseen exchange of natural forces all around us, and our place in this exchange.
