De Vaartkapoen – Brussels, Belgium
De Vaartkapoen by Tom Franzen stands outside the Communauté Française in Molenbeek. It is an irreverent tribute to the anarchaic side of the Bruxeloise. The title is a slang term for people born in Molenbeek; “de vaart” means “the canal” and “kapoen” means cheeky. It shows a young rebel, the Vaartkapoen, reminiscent of a jack-in-the-box, toppling over a policeman, thus overthrowing his authority.
