Printing on transparent self-adhesive vinyl, stuck to the glass (2018)
Thierry Verbeeck first produced work in the station as part of “PARTcours 2016”, a biennial open-air contemporary art event linking Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, Woluwe- Saint-Lambert and Auderghem. Following this first participation, STIB suggested that the artist take over all of the external glass panels, on the occasion of “PARTcours 2018”. Thierry Verbeeck’s work addresses the notion of identity in the digital age. When entering the station, the left side of the glass panels are covered with various gloved hands choosing from among several standardised fingerprints, while the right side also has gloved hands, drawing their own fingerprints in a “creative anarchy”, refusing the proposed identity schemes.
