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 colour alphabet is an ode to synaesthesia and designed in a similar way as the azart-line alphabet, without intersections. Every first letter of the name of the colour is the same as the saturation of the letter. ‘I’ is indigo, ‘A’ is aquamarine and so on.
