A healer and the patron saint of the municipality, Saint Guy brought fame to Anderlecht for hundreds of years. The collegiate church still contains his relics, once the focus of great devotion, as well as numerous religious works of art connected with his worship. The most important of these include reliquaries, a large altarpiece created by the painter Gaspar de Crayer, and the imposing Neoclassical pulpit. Through a selection of representative works, the public will be able to gain a better understanding of the historical and religious importance of the Anderlecht saint and the devotion he inspired in former times. In the polychromy workshop at the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten, the focus will be on a particularly important and precious wooden polychrome statue of Saint Guy that is currently undergoing restoration. This statue was sculpted in wood from a miraculous oak tree cut down in 1633 and which, according to legend, had been planted by Guy himself. Using a stereoscopic microscope it will be possible to examine the polychrome details on the statue, which has been painted over numerous times through the centuries, with the result that Guy has been literally dressed in “new clothes” several times. Tours of the collegiate church will be complemented by an educational exhibition entitled “Saint Guy of Anderlecht: between legend and history”.
