Journal de Saint Gilles {Liège, 2015}

*Project made in collaboration with Priscilla Suarez Bock, with the support of Reciprocity. Printed with RISO at NNStudio.

Following on the project l’or noir, I was invited to lead a workshop in the exhibition ‘Welcome to_’, in the context of Reciprocity Design Biennial in Liège (October 2015). With Priscilla, we decided to organize a meeting with inhabitants of the neighborhood of Saint Gilles (Liège, Belgium) to co-create a ‘special’ edition of their journal / gazette. We did so, at the Cite Miroir (venue of the exhibition), the 3rd of October.

After a very fruitful -and at times heated- discussion between the three people who participated of the meeting (one shop-owner and two residents), we produced a poster / gazette. The piece hints at speculative futures for the neighborhood, while acknowledging its historical value.
