Zuurstof voor de Zenne
These animals are all local to the Zenne - an anciently old river that has been flowing through the center of Belgium since the beginning of time. This 150km long river has often been neglected, trashed, dumped in and has been a host to many more obscure activities, but in the latest years this has changed. A nationwide project called Oxygen for the Zenne (Zuurstof voor de Zenne) will recalibrate the function and activities of cities along this rivervalley. Many areas will be revamped, renovated, or even completely reconstructed and redestined. One of these projects is the painting of two electricity cabins near future entrances of the waterside.
These cabins are often an eyesore, but together with our artists and the permission of the city + Proximus, Fluvius and Telenet (local utility companies) we brought some new life into a boring environment.
