With The Olfactory he realized 33 (one-day) exhibitions in 7 weeks in a container to research and promote olfactory art. The Smell of War will be his first bigger exhibition with 'The Olfactory'. Peter de Cupere is an olfactory artist. He is a researcher at the PXL Mad where he does a phd-research about the use of scent as a medium in artworks.
