THE OPEN CUBE À LAVOISIER
As part of the 101% program, SLRB asked Luc Tillé, Patricia Sonville and Thierry Wieleman, the creation of a work of art on the Lavoisier site in Molenbeek.
Artists rely on the participation of tenants social, with whom they have already met extensively during workshops since March 2018.
Together, they want to discover the neighbourhood. The photos meetings are printed on the tiles that will make up the work. The artists organized an exhibition in an unoccupied apartment in order to familiarize the inhabitants of the district when they were created.
The work, an open steel cube of about 2 metres which surrounds a closed cube of tiles,
is not limited to its base. Indeed, the tiles are spread over the walls of corridors and access roads.
The work incorporates reworked elements of the old one tobacco factory.
Mobilcube, the model of the materials of the great work nature, is moved according to the activities.
Artists aspire to a dialogue between photography and sculpture, mixing images and impressions of the inhabitants, their memories and the future they will build with their neighboring countries.
This particularly participatory artistic project will be inaugurated in May 2019.
