Situated a block away from rue Raymond Losserand, just behind the Square Losserand-Suisses, the somewhat obsure Atelier Adzak is a showcase for the works of British sculptor, photographer, and painter Wright Royston Adzak (1927-1987), as well as a living and working space for artists from around the world. The proprietor is Margaret Crowther.

Adzak, who is best known for his plant and animal "dehydrations" and for the Anthropometric man(1) series, built the studio with his own hands in the 1980s, along with the permanent sculpture garden. There are frequent temporary exhibitions of painting, drawing and sculpture by associated artists.

"Good art is not what it looks like, but what it does to us.."

Roy Adzak,
"Contemporary Artists," 1977.

During the recent past, artists-in-residence and exhibitors at the Musée Atelier Adzak have included Dilys Bryon, Richard Campbell, Matthew Chase-Daniel, Franck K. Lundangi, Lluís Martí, Jean Money, Didier de Nayer, Gerda Schütte, and Werner Stadler. The place also hosts poetry readings from time to time, as an accompaniment to special exhibits.
