Located in a small Belgian town, "The Plate" by Lucile Soufflet and Bernard Gigounon, is a collaborative public art project that addresses themes of fragility, impermanence and the passage of time. Speaking about the project Bernard says, "As soons a plate is broken, an entire mechanism comes into play, with the broken plate being replaced by another one. This is subsequently also broken and replaced, etc.etc. And the dance begins, thereby giving life to the plate. As a direct reference to the town's ceramics manufactoring heritage, the huge broken plate can be seen as both an archeological artefact -an expression of the industry's decline-, and as an incongruous surreal object."
