Brussels and its surroundings in the footsteps of Marine S

My tables

Al Jannah
“The best Lebanese mezze restaurant and grill in the city! His name means “paradise”. All products are fresh and homemade dishes. My guilty pleasure ? Chawarma spicy, falafel and desserts with cream of milk. The atmosphere is friendly, and you can even have lunch outside. “

Moeder Lambic Original
“I lived right in front of this bar, which offers a wide selection of local and craft beers. I have a preference for the blonde but there are delicious ones to the casks. A nice place and open late at night. “

My markets

The flea market of the place of the ball game
“Every morning, the flea market settles on this place, and sellers have their goods on large white sheets on the floor. Objects out of the attic, furniture mottled or recovered … we find everything! Half of my wardrobe comes from there, and I also bought a sofa and a table at a ridiculous price. This is the place to do upcycling ( recover materials to turn them into quality products or superior utility, Ed ).

The lunch market
“Every Sunday, Brussels residents find themselves in this food market to stock up on quality fruits and vegetables, as well as low-priced plants. I kept some of them while moving to Paris. “
Avenue Fonsny, Brussels.

Marine Serre’s favorite spots in Belgium

My outings

The Wiels Museum
“We admire the most beautiful exhibitions of contemporary art. Located in the former Wielemans brewery, this museum is home to national and international artists, and the rooftop offers breathtaking views of the city. The exhibition that marked me the most? Work / Work / Arbeid performance, designed in 2015 by dancer and choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. “

Old Belgium
“A temple of pop and rock, this theater hosts both established and emerging artists. I attended the BRMC (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and the Danish duo Laid Back concerts, which I loved. “

Brüxsel Garden
“Organized by a group of friends, these outdoor evenings bring together, in summer, nice people, good beer and great electro music. I go there quite often. “
Poelaert Square, Brussels.

My must-haves

National School of Visual Arts of La Cambre
“I studied in this school of art and design for five years and I have great memories. We worked a lot, but we inspired each other, it was really rewarding. And the place itself is magical with its large garden and 13th century abbey. “
427, Avenue Louise and 21, Abbey of La Cambre. lacambre.be .

The ponds of Ixelles
“During our school years, we often had picnics here between noon and two or in the evening after working hard, because the ponds are located right next to La Cambre, and the place is very relaxing . “
3, rue Guillaume-Stocq, Ixelles.

My escapades

Ostend
“Accessible by train in less than two hours, this beach is the closest to Brussels and stretches for several kilometers. As soon as I had a free moment, I came to relax here and ride a bike because the place is rather flat. My friends and I came to picnic, we basked in the sun on the white sand, and we even happened to bathe. The water was cold enough, we still stay in Belgium! “

Cooling tower Charleroi
“Near Brussels, Charleroi is an old industrial city where more people live, but this old abandoned cooling tower is sublime. The huge tunnel creates a rather exceptional light beam, and that’s why I did one of my first shootings there with photographer Pierre Debusschere. It was wonderful ! The place has always inspired me, because the tower has a very futuristic aesthetic. “
Monceau-sur-Sambre, Charleroi.
