Colors of Shade - facade installation (2019)

Colors of Shade, April 2019, Brussels

Colors of Shade
shows 18 plexiglass plates with ferrite magnets on their back to attract enough metallic dust form the air over the next months to reveal their secret drawings.

They are installed at the entrance of the Nieuwland site (Marollen, Brussels) with many educational organisations and schools. The drawings were made by children of De Buiteling.

The artwork is the first of a series projects that I develop since some month at the Nieuwland site, a commission by the VGC (Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie).

In a couple of weeks the process of attracting metallic dust on the plates will start to be visible.

The work is a sibling of my work from 2012 "What people say", the blue letters at the outside of the Beursschouwburg, Brussels.

More info and pictures soon.

Thanks to Joanneke Jouwsma, Ludo De Vleesschauwer, Els de Greef, Jo van Bostraeten and the kids of @De Buiteling!
