Pieces of Mind
New housing estate Westeraam
Elst, municipality of Overbetuwe, 2006
In 50 corner houses in the Lingebuurt area a niche was built into the corner.
For these “domains” I modelled a hundred figurines that were baked and glazed. The rich and old culture of the area formed a source of inspiration for the modelling work which is of an archaic nature.
The then future residents of the corner houses were then given the choice to pick a figurine for their own niche.
This way every street (corner) got their own identity.
