Tower of Bruxelles

La Tour de Bruxelles, 2008

How cool is this? Thinking how fun it would be to visit this building in Brussels, I tried to find out its location only to discover that it is a magical photo by photographer Eric DeVille. He created a series of three photographs, La Tour de Bruxelles, in which he reconstructed the city's building facades into a Tower of Babel, based on the 15th-century painting by Hieronymus Bosch

DeVille's photographs will be part of the exhibit opening on June 8th, BABEL at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille. The exhibition, “The Fantastic and the Fabulous in sixteenth-century Flemish landscape painting : Bosch, Bruegel, Bles and Bril” will reference the Tower of Babel in contemporary art, as addressed in paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations, films and original comic strips. It will close on January 14, 2013.
