Levende Linies (Living Frontiers)
Artwork in public space
5 photographic panels, appr. 550 x 400 cm each

Commissioned by the Province of Utrecht, in collaboration with QKunst, I have worked on a public artwork at four large tunnel flanks for a tunnel underneath the A12 high-road.

Levende Linies is an artwork that tries to grasp the architectural traces in the direct surroundings of the tunnel, at the point where the historical borders of the Roman Empire and the Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie intersect. These structures that lie hidden and overgrown in the flat Dutch landscape are forming silent witnesses of these former military borders.

In the artwork, I am playing with scale, proportion, sculptural quality and the memory of these structures. The work was revealed in October 2019.

Levende Linies was commissioned by the Province of Utrecht, and realized under the artistic guidance of  QKunst.
