The story behind the freshly painted mural in C11

Sep 16 2019

Those who danced in our second room C11 last weekend, might have noticed the change: a beautiful 4,5 x 2,2 meter fresco is now decorating the space. We invited painter Clara Duflos for the job and afterwards she was willing to share a few words with us.

You won’t believe it when you see the beautiful artwork Clara finished, but it’s the second time only she created such a huge painting. The universe she is currently creating has been in her head and paintings since about a year, as you can witness on her Instagram page. She opted for a painting with dynamics in it, to fully synchronize with the moving crowd of an electronic music club. Central in her work are woman pictured without a face or expression, anonymous, symbolizing the often tensed position of women in society. “They are fleeing from a place, away from something”, Clara explains. 

Clara is from Grenoble in France, but has been living in Brussels for more than 6 years now. Based on her drawings for C12, she has already been asked to renew the well-known mural in Ixelles restaurant ‘Les Super Filles Du Tram’ and more exciting new projects are lining up. 

Come and take a look at her work in our club.
