In the darkest days of the year, De Mijlpaal Knokke reflects on the longing for the dark, the sublime experience of infinite blackness. Absorbing everything, but equally healing, calming and poetic. As an achromatic phenomenon, it reflects no light or other colour but is equally generous as an inspiration to so many artists. De Mijlpaal brings together a timeless and extraordinary selection in these dark days, each with their own story and wonder.
