references a historical building situated at the North end of Martelarenplein, Leuven. Above the ground floor window the name of a bar/café had been carved originally into the stone lintel: A la sirene in de Meermin. The temporary installation was a full-scale copy of the façade of this building turned by 90 degrees. Appearing like a physical manifestation of the building’s shadow, the architectural structure stretched out on Martelarenplein over a length of nearly 18 meter.
was realised by the artist in collaboration with R.Bau Ltd, South Tyneside and Newcastle College UK, and Wonen en Werken Leuven.
was a STUK Kunstencentrum Leuven project and part of the STUKSTART opening event.
