Hatch

 

During the ‘Verborgen Tuinen 2013’ event, I created a closed hatch at the garden of a housing block in Charlois, Rotterdam. This hatch could be a way to pass to another space,  basement, tunnel or whatever. But in the meantime it is also an exit from such a space to the garden. What it really is we will not know, because the hatch appears to be locked tight!

For the ‘Grensloos Kunstverkennen’ art-route at Ijhorst/De Wijk I created the work ‘This is it’. In the garden of a beautiful old farm I used a dead tree-trunk to create a work that fitted the exhibition and its surroundings. The tree was overgrown with ivy, which made it look like a sort of ancient greek pillar.  The ‘gallery’ built around the tree was made of wood contributed by a farmer from the area and was completely white from the inside.
