Fimo is one of the nine winners of the call for projects “9 visions”. This call for projects, launched in 2018, brought together nine artists and focused on a specific topic. The 30-metre hoarding in the rue du Marché aux poulets, partly surrounding the future administrative centre of the City of Brussels, are the canvas on which the artists were able to express themselves on the theme of “BXL moves for you, with you and thanks to you”. The aim is to show that Brussels is a creative city, evolving and on the move: a city that is modernising.

Fimo has embellished a panel by using a graphic approach based on geometric shapes. Its composition can be interpreted as symbolic of the multiplicity of the key players involved in the development of Brussels. The many shapes and colours are there to evoke the emulation of the city, Brussels being the result of an association of a multitude of entities. It is a reflection that symbolises the “for, with and thanks to you”, translated into a graphic design. The composition works as a whole, with each piece helping the other to drive Brussels forward.
Warm colours encapsulate dynamism, green tones express creativity, white spaces point to the future and the city’s future horizon, and BXL lettering that steps out of its box in order to assert the importance of the city beyond its borders.
