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".

This series of fragile (textual) collages are a special digression in Evgeny Granilshikov's oeuvre and form part of his efforts to create total installations in which film fragments, interior elements and various artistic forms are capable of being merged. Like his films, they look for meaning at the margins of communication.
