It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite you to the exhibition :

« The Open Cube » – Development

A trip to some of Molenbeek’s neighbourhoods, and to the history and memories of the people who live there.
An exhibition that, in the form of photographic mosaics, highlights the results of participatory workshops with the inhabitants of the Lavoisier site and surrounding neighbourhoods.
The model and plans of the sculpture as well as the work of the sculptor Patricia Sonville will also be visible.

The images chosen are, the « souvenir » objects of the inhabitants of Lavoisier and Molenbeek, the prints of the hands of the inhabitants of Lavoisier, the hands painted with henna, the clothes and fabrics, found in Molenbeek and children’s drawings made on the theme of memory. (workshop of Danièle Aron professor of drawing at the Molenbeek Academy).
The objects and hands painted with henna were photographed on different coloured backgrounds and the harmony is achieved by 2/3 of tiles with photos and 1/3 of white tiles.
No tile color touches another tile of the same or similar color. No pattern in the composition which allows to give a chaotic aspect to the harmony of the composition.
