Ready to lose control

2013
Temporary installation on three levels of a WWII bunker ; 36 peeled logs and black ink

De Zeven Provincien are bunkers near former military airport Fliegerhorst Deelen, built by the Germans. They look like local farms to hide them from Allied Forces on the outside, but inside the walls are made of cast concrete and 50 cm thick. The window shutters are made of heavy cast iron in stead of wood. After WO-II, the bunkers were used by the Dutch army. The bunkers got abandoned after the Cold War and the windows were shut to avoid squatting.

After twenty-five years of darkness I opened the windows in order to create this installation.

After the festival the bunkers were sold to be transformed into family houses.
