Brussels South AirportKrinzinger Projekte, Vienne
After having invited curator Philippe Pirotte to show works by artists of the Flemish Community, Krizinger projekte launched the same invitation to the BPS22 for the Wallonia-Brussels Community. To avoid any global vision that would have associated the artists to a fictitious "community", the proposition of the BPS22 privileged individualities, underlining their diversity by focusing on their singularity.
The title of the show Brussels South Airport is a parody of the Charleroi airport in Brussels greater area, translating this will of associating the Wallonia-Brussels Community to the idea of a platform: a political entity formed by the people who inhabit it rather than by a geographic reality, circulating on the imperfectly defined "South of Brussels" territory, which is particularly restrained at European scale. The Community must therefore be considered as a place for encounters, a crossroad where countless different personalities meet, a space boasting both immigrants and immigrated.
