Painting on polyester concrete panels and stainless steel frieze (1985)

This piece was created for this station through a successful collaboration between two very different artistic personalities. Here we find ourselves in front of a dynamic evolution derived from a 35 mm film. On one wall are fifteen “photogrammes” which analyse a young woman’s jump. On the other side, seven triptychs represent another cinematic interpretation. Underneath the two series of paintings runs a metallic frieze which suggests the optical soundtrack of a feature film. The work of art is not only impressive due to the sheer size of the fifteen 9 m2 panels, but also due to its rich metaphorical theme, where techniques and qualities of film and painting are coordinated and linked to a social and humanitarian message in a thoughtful way.The aim was for the work to have a link to the nearby Brugmann hospital.
