Photographer's Note

This is a 2nd photo Noah's Ark by Romainian artist Virgil Scripcariu in Place du Musée, in the courtyard of the palace of Charles of Lorraine in central Brussels. It was part of the Europalia festival two years ago.

Europalia was established in Brussels 40 years ago, in 1969. Eurofalia is a cultural organisation that is organising festivals of art every second year. This year the the event will be dedicated to the culture of China. Two years ago it highlighted the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome that established the European Economic Community (EEC) All 27 Member States were represented. The main event then was Pathways of art in Europe that exhibited European art from the 5th century to the 18th century. Another and more exciting event was Agorafolly or Agorafolie (Agora means square in greek). Agorafolly was the “future” section of the Europalia festival. 27 young artists, one from each Member State, perhaps the great names of tomorrow, had been asked to create a European artwork of the future. Their works were exhibited in squares around Brussels
