French artist Simon Boudvin (1979) brought a narrative but also political depth to the architectural project of building the new museum of folklore in Mouscron. His work consisted in inserting bricks that were recovered from the demolition sites of several small heritages in Mouscron. The bricks inserted in the facade contribute to the story of the preservation of tradition and minor architecture under threat. As part of the work, the book Un Nouveau Musée consists of a text by the artist, in which he extensively describes the museum, without showing it.
