Armelle Caron — Bruxelles rangée
In 2018, CIVA invited the French artist Armelle Caron to reorganize the urban morphology of the Brussels-Capital Region: its districts, its blocks, its islets. This patient and sensitive work of recomposition gave birth to Bruxelles rangée, a work which, while being of a great graphic richness, raises many questions on what constitutes the identity, the singularity of the city. This screenprint is part of her series of "tidy cities" (villes rangées), a work started by Armelle Caron in 2005 and still in progress. 14 cities have already been put in order (Paris, Berlin, Rennes, Istanbul, etc.), more are to come. The artist sees her work as a graphical anagram that lets you look at the shape of Brussels as a simple drawing. However, and in contrast, it is the social, political or historical aspects which re-emerge in this ordering, as they are absent from the initial representation.
