Marin Kasimir

Marin Kasimir, born in 1957 in Munich, is a contemporary German artist, working in Brussels, a large part of whose work is articulated on the photographic panorama, which he declines in public installations, or also in the form of three-dimensional objects and in publications. In May 2007, as part of the “101%” operation initiated by the Brussels-Capital Region (an operation that dates from the end of the 90s and which aims to decorate public places with various works of art), the artist Marin Kasimir realized a long fresco of 200 meters on a height of 50 cm in the courtyard of social housing “Le Marbotin”. This “fresco in bloom”, illuminated at night, represents the cherry trees of Japan, one of the symbols of the town, as well as a succession of panoramic images of Schaerbeek.
