The Sequence in front of the Flemish Parliament in Brussels

A lot of controversy in this morning papers. An article by Brussels based correspondent of the French paper Libération, bearing the title: "Bruxelles pas Belle", was asking for it... Not much more is needed to get the ball rolling ...  Belgium's Le Soir came with: "Bruxelles, ma belle, je te rejoins bientôt". Brussels' politicians are reacting on Facebook and I feel like saying "here we go again"....
Perfect timing to show the structure by  Belgian artist Arne Quinze signs  who signs for:  “THE SEQUENCE",  meant to "bridges the communication gap between people and generates movement in the city. I want to reconnect people and let them interact with each other like they did in the past on squares. At least people talked to each other then.” Therefore concrete elements serve as the basis for the sculpture. It gives people a moment to reset their minds and think about what’s going on in those two buildings. The physical connection between neighbors, the Flemish Parliament and the House of Flemish Representatives reflects the possible connection between all neighbors in Brussels. Cross-culture connections, a connection with Europe, its diversity and entity".

  6. Hallo Anni,
    Eerst Oostende, nu Brussel...
    Ik spreek me niet uit over de kustwaarde van deze montages maar...
    Zijn er dan geen andere artiesten in Vlaanderen???
    Of gaat het om vriedjespolitiek?

  14. Anche se non sono un amante dell'arte moderna, devo dire che quest'opera mi attira. Stai a vedere che un giorno o l'altro vado ad una mostra per capire questo tipo di arte. Buona domenica, Anni.
