Closing of the PEZ project at Rekkem

[Translate to Anglais:] clôture-rekkem

From April to October 2014, artist Thierry Verbeke created his “Paradise Economic Zone” (P.E.Z.) on the car park of the former border checkpoint of Rekkem-Ferrain.  

 

 

From this site – a remarkable symbol of the French-Belgian cross-border rapprochement – the artist set out to meet local residents and explain his artistic project. 

 

On 3 October, on the occasion of the closing of his project, he contemplated his experience in the field during these past few months.  

 

The result of his residency at the site is an atypical journal full of anecdotes and photographic material.
