Enamelled wall tiles (1976)

Over its 120 metres, “Rythme bruxellois” is an energetic alternation of colours and shapes. Within the three dimensions of the architectural space, the wall is covered in living contrasts of shapes and colours. Each part of this composition takes part in the whole but retains its own individuality. With this work of art, Jo Delahaut underlines simplicity and rejects - in one movement - complicated and unusual constructions. The brightly coloured parts alternate with compositions in black and white, whereas yellow, purple, blue, red and green of different widths repeat successively in horizontal, vertical or curved strips. The work of art is made of solid materials that are resistant to temperature variations and humidity, and can easily be washed so that dust and dirt can be removed.
