For the “De Unie Hasselt-Genk” exhibition , Felice Varini realised a painting on the roofs and facades of 99 buildings in the city centre of Hasselt: ‘Trois ellipses ouvertes en désordre’. The composition can only be seen in its entirety from one particular vantage point. Following the route of De Unie across town, however, visitors will be confronted with a number of fragments of Varini’s work. Every fragment is an attraction in itself.
Swiss artist Felice Varini always sets out to create interventions in the existing architecture of the urban and industrial landscape. The open space is the canvas upon which the artist applies his geometric colour planes. From a carefully chosen position, Varini ‘projects’ his perspectival figures across the sprawling city.
