Showcased at the Galerie Sofie Lachaert, the Money's Worth exhibition explores the changed value of currency with eclectic pieces by inventive artists.

According to Galerie Sofie Lachaert, "Money, coins as well as bank notes, are nomadic objects, reflections of a nation, of its style and tradition, its past and present." Currency, as an everyday object is a symbolic object of value that often plays a large role in society.

The Money's Worth exhibition utilizes physical coins and bills from a variety of countries to create artful representations that allow visitors to think of capital in a new way. One of the most striking pieces is the Dollar Koi origami by Won Park, as it stuns with its intricacy. It is the transformation of ordinary objects into art that is highly captivating.
