‘Tiletunnels’ : Leeuwarden : 2014
Three tile-works in the city of Leeuwarden. They are situated in underpasses under the newly built motorways leading into the city centre. The narrow underpasses are for bicycles only. All three tile-works emphasise a characteristic that is present at each location. This way they are not a mere fantasy of an artist, but an acceleration of a natural phenomenon that one could see at that location anyway, if one would take notice. In this way, the works expand into the wider surroundings – not limited to the extent of the art-work itself – but reaching out to the visual domain at each location. Since road building is a slow process the construction stage was a long one (stretching from 2013 until 2016).
