Brexit ( a portmanteau of “British” and “exit”) is the withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU). Following a referendum held on 23 June 2016 in which 51.9 percent of those voting supported leaving the EU, the Government invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, starting a two-year process which was due to conclude with the UK’s exit on 29 March 2019. That deadline has since been extended to 31 October 2019.

Hans Vandekerckhove (Kortrijk, 12 October 1957) is a Flemish visual artist living in Ghent.

He focuses on motifs with deep-rooted tradition from Western visual arts: the Rückenfigur, the gardener, the garden and the horticulture, greenhouses, bridges and related architectural motifs, the Hieronymus motif, the girl figure, the romantic landscape, the totem animal, the sacra conversation and announcement motive. He is a romantic and individualist who in his work evolved from a neo-expressionist style (early 1980s) to an almost abstract image inspired by alchemical motifs (1990s) and then, from 1998, to return to the figurative and substantive themes, namely. of the pictorial relationship between motif and background and people and environment. Vandekerckhove’s paintings are contemplative, ascetic works that cause a certain unrest and at the same time are attractive, without falling into the alienation of surrealism. As a person and as an artist, he has a strong relationship with nature and tries to tell a story about it as a visual poet.
In June 2007 the first book with paintings from the period 1998-2006 was published by publishing house Ludion (ISBN 978 90 5544 666 7). The author is Dieter Roelstraete, art philosopher and curator at the MuHka.

The book is titled My head is my only home, an indirect reference to a song by Captain Beefheart.

Picture Palace will be published by Lannoo Publishers in 2009 (ISBN 978 90 209 8362 3). The authors are artist Pjeroo Roobjee and Paul Depondt.

The experimental film and video filmmaker Svend Thomsen, founder of Artcinema OFFOFF, turns Picture Palace into a documentary.

A greenhouse (also called a glasshouse, or, if with sufficient heating, a hothouse) is a structure with walls and roof made chiefly of transparent material, such as glass, in which plants requiring regulated climatic conditions are grown.[ These structures range in size from small sheds to industrial-sized buildings. A miniature greenhouse is known as a cold frame. The interior of a greenhouse exposed to sunlight becomes significantly warmer than the external ambient temperature, protecting its contents in cold weather.

Many commercial glass greenhouses or hothouses are high tech production facilities for vegetables or flowers. The glass greenhouses are filled with equipment including screening installations, heating, cooling, lighting, and may be controlled by a computer to optimize conditions for plant growth. Different techniques are then used to evaluate optimality-degrees and comfort ratio of greenhouse micro-climate (i.e., air temperature, relative humidity and vapor pressure deficit) in order to reduce production risk prior to cultivation of a specific crop.
