During the ‘Verborgen Tuinen’ 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!

The first idea for this work came to me already a few years ago, but was never executed. Being asked for this event it came back to my mind and it formed a perfect opportunity to make the work.
