Cécile Pitois

Requiem for a Star


In an open-air passageway on Rue Demanet, we are invited to share the worldview of Flor Van der Vinnen, a well-known o beat character from the neighbourhood’s past. The text and the ri- tual in which the artist invites us to take part complement those of The Refuge of Dreams, but they stem from a di erent thought process: here, the dreams that we are invited to recall are to be addressed to someone other than ourselves. Echoing this, a shining star ickers as if expres- sing the time we have allowed ourselves to spend before leaving our contribution for all to enjoy.
