BUILDING WALLS, 2020 - 2022

The Building Walls project is an art installation in public space.
By copying / recontextualizing materials and objects from the municipality, it is possible to place something in public space.
I, therefore, posed as a project leader to place a "wall" in public space. If something is newly built or renovated in the city, it will be closed off with a wooden wall.

It is 'allowed' to graffiti on the wooden plates surrounding the construction site, often done immediately after placement. After construction, everything will get removed, including the graffiti which is autonomously applied by the artist.

By defining an area, as construction does, will this art installation influence public space without realizing that it has any influence. In this way, the municipality thinks it "belongs" and I provide a wall where autonomous art can be applied without the artist knowing that it is an art installation I created.

Wall is placed on 16 5 2020. Bergselaan, Rotterdam.

On September 8, 2021 the graffiti removal/the municipality cleaned the public space where the object is located and removed all graffiti.

After cleaning, they have put the object back in a creative way.
