‘Transformer’ : Kaatsheuvel : 2016
A sculpture for the city of Kaatsheuvel. It was a funny affair. Right next to the brand new city hall a common transformer kiosk was sited. This was an accident. It was not planned, the developers of the place forgot to install the transformers inside the new building. Now it’s an eye-sore, a typical transformer-building straight from the catalogue. The brief for the artwork was basically to make that thing ‘go away’. For safety-reasons the artwork was not allowed to touch the transformer-kiosk, and it needed to remain accessible at all times. Besides that, a seating element needed to be part of the design. A bit of a gordian knot to start with, it resulted in a deluxe stainless steel tripple shell of dazzling graffiti-esque lines.
