ROGER DUDANT - LA VILLE

SOME CULTURE...

Artwork

This nine metre long mosaic was created in one of the Parc metro station corridors. For observers, the work evokes construction and building sites. The colours of the marble and the fragments of mosaic are refined and well matched in black, grey, off-white, yellow, red brown and ochre. The slight irregularities in shape and size, as well as the intentionally rough surface of certain types of stones reinforce the references to construction materials and the constructions themselves. In the linear balance of the vertical and horizontal, the sloping parts bring slight contrasting movements. Roger Dudant has commented on the marble and stone used in the work: “These materials have resisted the ravages of time and they now bring a touch of poetry to the underground world of Brussels.”
