Douglas Eynon & Erwan Mahéo at La Verrière

Novelty Ltd.

A large embroidery piece redefines the topography of La Verrière, dividing it into two distinct spaces. The seemingly opposing worlds of Douglas Eynon, on the one side, and Erwan Mahéo, on the other, come together as a global installation and a metaphor for the future of the city of Brussels, under the auspices of the exhibition’s eponymous, mysterious company.
