This new work of art ‘Embrace’ was inaugurated today – Friday, October 26 – in Ganshoren , Brussels , Belgium. At the foot of the Basilica Koekelberg, at the beginning of the Van Overbekelaan, the corten steel sculpture was placed last monday and filmed in this panoramic view from the Basilica. This work is a translation of the remarkable friendship between artist Koenraad Tinel and lawyer Simon Gronowski, who both carry a heavy war history with them.
Embrace is a realization of the De Zeyp community center on the occasion of the 40th anniversary, and is part of the Grundtvig project ‘2WARdS-Europe’
