Beaufort Location: Bridge 3 Pierre Vandamme Lock, Zeebrugge

Johan Muyle

°1956, Charleroi, Belgium 

The work by Johan Muyle comprises paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations and assemblages. The artist expresses his fascination for the kitsch of the Indian ‘Bollywood’ by means of colourful panels with realistic figures, enlarged self-portraits and portraits of friends. These panels are completed with text fragments and slogans. Muyle’s gigantic billboard (50 metres by 10) was affixed underneath the bridge so that the picture became visible every time the bridge opened.
