In 2014 I was approached by Elke Scholiers and Io Cooman to produce an audiovisual work based on the oral history recordings curated by BNA BBOT (bna-bbot.be).

Through listening to this collection, 5 conversations on the creation of the North South railway link the "Jonction" in the first half of the 20th century stood out.

I placed extracts of these recordings alongside 50 photographs from a study on the Jonction which I was commissioned to carry out 2012.

Some conversations are factual, some emotive, and some simply give a sense of this period in time. The intention is that the viewer may come to their own conclusions on this oft-discussed element of Brussels' urban fabric.

The video was exhibited in May 2014 at the BNA BBOT gallery in the centre of Brussels.
