Marie-Françoise Plissart's Brussels

Marie-Françoise Plissart's Brussels

Through her recent works, most of which have never been shown, Marie-Françoise Plissart is proposing to the Maison Autrique a very powerful and original vision of Brussels, in a series of very large format colour prints.

This event will have the same importance as her last personal exhibitions: Kinshasa, the imaginary city, Golden Lion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in September 2004; Bozar, June to September 2005; Johannesburg, June 2006, and Bruxelles Horizon Vertical, UCB Brussels, January 1999; Galerie du Botanique, April 2000.

Her long collaboration with Benoît Peeters and François Schuiten is yet another of the multiple facets of a talent that the Maison Autrique is delighted to host during the next three months.
