Erasmus – Festina Lente

Metro Erasmus 

Erasmus metro station is named after the Dutch philosopher and theologian Desiderius Erasmus, who lived in Brussels during the early 16th century.

The station’s interior is characterized by a series of curving walls and ceilings that create a sense of movement and flow while providing visual interest and variety for passengers. Its design is notable for its use of natural light and its integration with the surrounding environment.

In addition to the images and photo compositions, it also contains aphorisms of Erasmus, translated into several European languages. “Festina Lente,” which means “Hurry slowly,” thus naturally presented itself as the title for this piece of artwork.

Festina Lente

Michel Mouff, a Belgian artist based in Brussels, created the artwork “Festina Lente.” The piece’s title, which means “Hurry slowly” in Latin, embodies its philosophical concept.

It encourages reflection and contemplation, reminding viewers to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the world around them.

Michel Mouffe’s artworks are designed to create a sense of movement and dynamism within the static environment of the subway system, adding color, vibrancy, and a sense of artistry to the city’s public spaces.

Overall, the Erasmus station is considered one of the most visually striking and innovative in the Brussels metro system.
