Photographie de couverture pour le roman de l’architecte Pierre Blondel :
It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite you to the exhibition :
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 tiles on the sides of the cube with the coloured windows
Cube Size: 180 cm x 180 x 180 cm – Tiles Size: 15 cm x 7,5 cm
850 tiles with photo printing, 480 white tiles, 7 windows (30 cm x 15 cm) and 3 coloured windows (30 cm x 90 cm) + 1 windows (30 cm x 30 cm) on the top of the cube.
Front Side View with the 3 windows
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.
