Architectural installation for the open-air exhibition COMPOSTE in the rural Steenhuize. Between budding grasses and crops, in the shade of a weeping willow, along paths and hills, in chapels and in a church, wonderful sculptures and objects rise from the ground.
Along one of the paths are two stacked triangles that form a rest and shelter for passers-by. The installation looks recognizable because of its materials, but strange because of its appearance. A fascinating field of tension arises between the austere geometric stacked forms and the weathered materials from which the forms are effectively constructed.
The entire installation was built with recycled materials. A dam pattern was made with the roof tiles, something you often see in old farms, by mixing polluted and less sheltered ones. Wooden beams from the demolition of a carport in Bruges were used for the structure.
