Façades – Be Part Waregem
2 steps aside:
For this work, I made a journey from Texel (the Netherlands) to Bialowieza (Poland), a journey from a cultural landscape, the Dutch polders recently reclaimed from the sea, to the only remaining piece of primeval forest in Europe. In the middle of that journey (geographically and mentally), I visited a landscape park in Branitz (Germany). In this park, designed by Fürst Pückler Muscau, nature was composed for the first time in function of a visitor on foot. Previously, avenues were created in landscape parks so that people could move from one spectacular view to another by carriage. In Branitz, new views are constantly emerging. I made three pairs of photos in which I took two steps sideways in between the images. I converted these images into three times two drawings that were presented with the same spacing as in which the photos were taken (2 steps).
This photo was taken at Be-Part, the expo room there is round so I brought the left and right sides forward a bit to position both works in a straight line next to each other.
Façades was an expo with Hans Demeulenaere, Wesley Meuris, Honoré d’O & Stijn Cole
