"Park Project"

Park "Hof van Leysen", Antwerp, Belgium

(2011)

 

In this site-specific installation, concieved as a night project in a citypark, a large welded cageform is placed on a dense shrub. From the inside of the shrub you hear the sharp chirping of dozens of tiny birds (a soundrecording) in shrill contrast with the quiet of the night. The cage, lit from the inside, seems to contain, - imprison or preserve(?) - a small but intensly alive section of the park.
