ROOBJEE & TONDAT - LES COULEURS DE LA SOLIDARITÉ

SOME CULTURE...

Low-relief mosaic (2004)

This piece was created by Gino Tondat, based on a project by Pjeeroo Robjee and presented to the Brussels-Capital Region by “Welzijnszorg” and the Flemish Christian workers’ movement, in order to make the public aware of the problems linked to poverty. This work of art is therefore the crowning achievement of an extensive campaign organised under the slogan “Donnez de la couleur à la solidarité” (Give colour to solidarity). The participation of the public took the form of a petition signed by 270,000 people, who each brought a little piece of mosaic in order to symbolise the action. It is a low-relief mosaic which brightens up the Rogier station ticket office area, on the tram 25 and 55 terminus side.
