Befimmo, a company committed to the revitalisation and ongoing development of the Northern District, notably by the UP4NORTH association, is the driving force behind this artistic project, coordinated by STUDIO GONDO.

As part of its Quatuor building construction project, Befimmo is giving four artists from a variety of disciplines carte blanche to create an artistic work on the hoardings surrounding the building site.

On site for a period of two years, the hoardings, which run for over 120 metres along the Baudouin road, offer an exceptional opportunity to get a positive dialogue going with the neighbourhood through artistic projects. Céleste Gangolphe’s work follows on from artist Arnaud Kool’s creations and will be made available to the city for a period of six months (March > September 2019), before making way for a proposal from a new artist.

During this period, the artist will offer a colourful, poetic and symbolic vision of the neighbourhood’s future. “I wanted to highlight the importance of people living in harmony with their environment in the city”, explains Céleste Gangolphe. “I am inviting passers-by on a journey to the boundary between dreams and reality in the company of inspiring giants who will inhabit the hoarding”.
The artist plans to gradually introduce several installations around the construction site. These notably include several frescoes painted on the sections of the hoarding located on Avenue Albert II, Chaussée d’Anvers and Boulevard Baudouin.
