Who? The Green Fairy (Annemie Maes)
Why? The title of the collage exhibition ‘All Aboard!’ refers to the desire of many to travel carefree again with/after all the travel restrictions because of the corona pandemic. The title also refers to the location of the expo, Gare Maritime, the former monumental railway freight station on the Tour & Taxis site in Brussels that has recently been renovated. Gare Maritime was around 1900 the largest railway freight station in Europe, with a direct train connection to the port of Antwerp, from where boats departed for distant destinations.
All Aboard! is a call to alert passengers to board a ship, train, plane or bus that is about to depart. The association with “get here fast or you’ll get left behind!” also reflects the feeling that it is “now or never” to get out and about this summer.
The circles that feature prominently in this expo refer to “pilOttOttOmaticO” a side project of The Green Fairy in which the collage artist collects “circles” in public spaces and has been publishing a “circle of the day” every day for almost 800 days, like pebbles on a mapped route to unknown destinations.
