‘Position’ IV in Heythuysen is a sculptural installation made of red clothing that will be shown in various stages during the three-month exhibition period. This specific group of sculptures refers in composition to Christian sculpture and painting, but can be viewed from different cultural perspectives. It comes in a series of installations that I have been developing in various locations since 2012. The use of materials for discarded red clothing refers to various underlying social aspects, such as exploitation, disposable culture and destruction of nature, but each of the works has its own meaning. Visitors can follow different stages during three months: for example, something may have changed or been added during each visit and the visitor can not only see the moments, but also follow a course, as in a film. Only the moments are longer visible. Each phase has its own expressiveness. With this I defy the normally static fact of sculpture, which fits within the line of my work and fits in with the fact that everything is in motion and changeable, including experience and interpretation.
The chapel is closed with a glass wall so anybody can come and see whenever they like. I consider it a public space art project and an intervention because it’s relationship with the space. This way of working is a kind of sculptural graffiti.
