‘Tent’ : Goes : 1986
A sculpture in the huge cathedral of the city of Goes. I decided to first make a manageable model of the church: a tent, it’s roof a scale model of the church’s. Having a roof within a roof was an oddity expressed by a ‘leak’ in the tent. Each morning the minder of the church would fill the top rod of the tent with water that would drip trough a nozzle creating a puddle in the tent. The reflex of putting a bucket under a leak was executed in the scale of the cathedral: two big basins were placed outside the tent, and guided the gaze of the visitor back upwards to the roof of the cathedral. A visual scale circulation thus manifested itself: from roof to tent to droplet to bucket back to the roof.
