Patrice Niset

Brussels Pixels exhibition at the Jazz Station

From 23/11/2023 Opening Friday 24/11 at 19:00

The collective of photographers "Brussels PixelsThis exhibition, featuring six resident artists, shows Brussels in a non-conformist light.

The photographers take an offbeat look at the city, whether they're natives or not. Whether they are natives of the capital or have arrived here by chance, the important thing is that the magic happens! Yes, this much-maligned city has its faults, but it also has its great qualities, its particular beauty, its secrets and mysteries, its little corners of paradise, its little-known districts, its colourful inhabitants and characters...


At the Jazz Station, come and discover Les Eraillures de la Ville by Patrice Niset.

"Cars follow roads, trains follow rails, aeroplanes and rockets never reach infinity. We always bump into somewhere. Régis JAUFFRET - French novelist (Born 1955) ".
For six months, photographer Patrice Niset grappled with the limits imposed by the passage of trains through the city of Brussels. The idea seems simple enough. To explore all the points of connection between the city and the railways. The figures: 100km of track, 34 active stations, 3 level crossings, hundreds of bridges and tunnels, thousands of public and private gardens.
A perpetual game of hide and seek...
The railways are three times denser in the Brussels region than anywhere else in the country. The railways cut a swathe through the city, carving out a passageway that is often hidden, regularly inaccessible, but which imposes itself with force. A space from which most people are excluded, and where a few outcasts regularly find refuge. Les Eraillures de la Ville are the superficial abrasions of the metropolis. We rub shoulders with them every day without really knowing them.
The figures: 100km of track, 34 active stations, 3 level crossings, hundreds of bridges and tunnels, thousands of public and private gardens. A perpetual game of hide-and-seek.

Or the art of taking us to the heart of the gesture.
The photographer's favourite subject Patrice Niset is the work of man, the mark he can leave on his time and on History. A mark made by gestures repeated and refined a thousand times over the centuries. The photographer's interest in the world of work was first expressed by taking pictures of disused industrial sites. Already a trace of human activity, albeit bygone, captured by the lens. Since then, he has set out to meet the workers, to enter their world, to get as close as possible to what they do and the objects they work on. It's a world that's different every time, and one that's influenced by the way people work in the workshop. In doing so, the photographer establishes a snapshot of today's world of manual labour, in which those involved are at one with their passion. Patrice Niset has been fascinated by the Arts and Crafts for ten years, and this is the behind-the-scenes look at the workshops that he illustrates on its site. There he meets the best craftsmen. For several years now, with the Bruxelles Pixels collective, the photographer has been focusing on the workings of the city: the Gens du Canal, Piss& Love, Sphéricity, Six Feed Under and of course the Eraillures de la Vill
