Happy Evere After (if bricks could talk)

Happy Evere After (if bricks could talk)

“Happy Evere After” will shine a light on the Platon neighbourhood, situated in upper Evere, and its social housing complex, which is managed by the Everecity cooperative rental company. This complex, now freshly renovated, was one of the Modernist projects that drove the development of Brussels in the 1950s and early 1960s. To make the bricks talk, L’Entrela’, in collaboration with Everecity, invited the artist Chad Keveny to spend six months in residence in the neighbourhood. Installed in a studio made entirely of glass, Chad remained there until the end of the summer, painting, drawing and meeting the local inhabitants. He collected the stories of long-term residents, as well as those of people who had recently arrived in the neighbourhood. During the weekend of 15 and 16 September, his ephemeral works (comprising large India ink drawings on Kraft paper, old photos and clips of interviews) will be exhibited on the walls of certain buildings. These will enable visitors to discover not only the neighbourhood’s architecture, but also the precious personal accounts of its residents.

A partnership between L’Entrela’, the Evere Cultural Centre, Everecityand Chad Keveny, a visual artist.
