Description

32 x 25 x 3 cm

40,000 m² of a building destined for destruction, a street artist and 150 sketchbooks - these are the ingredients behind the incredible "Remember souvenir" project.

When artist Denis Meyers learned that the Solvay company headquarters in Ixelles was to be demolished, he managed to obtain permission from the owners to move in. Over the course of days, weeks and months, he regularly visited this immense abandoned space to cover the walls, floors, ceilings and windows with words and faces taken from a sketchbook he had kept for 20 years. No less than 1,500 black bombs have enabled the artist to unload these memories in this immense playground, forming a monumental and ephemeral work of art.

This art book preserves the trace of this crazy project, from its conception to the destruction of the place through numerous photographs of the building.
