Low-relief in tin alloy (1982)

42 panels of 1 m2 cover the circular wall of a pillar in the station hall. Frans Minnaert has consciously used the cylindrical shape of the station’s architecture because it expresses infinity. The work suggests the awakening of life and the continuity of creation. The changing effects of the natural light (lines, points, slots, scratches, grooves, stains, etc.) give the relief a dynamic character that fits with the continual nature of creation and appeal to the imagination. The light which extends over the raised surface comes from two sources: the station dome, which is built in a circular shape and from one side, from the windows which look out on to the street.
