Scultpure by Tadashi Kawamata ready for opening in Borgloon

For two weeks the Japanse artist Tadashi Kawamata worked with thirty-some architect, interior architect and visual arts students in the centre of Borgloon. Around the Burchtheuvel - a historically important location in Borgloon - a gigantic sculpture now is standing. 

Today at 2pm the sculpture will be officially introduced to the public and the press. Afterwards we all walk (15 min.) to the church Reading between the Lines of Gijs Van Vaerenbergh. This art work was finished a couple of weeks ago, but now also will be officially be presented to the public. Full program opening event.

Both works are part of the project pit: art in open space in Borgloon, part of Z-OUT by Z33.

The students and also photographer Kristof Vrancken took a lot of pictures during the workshop / construction. Looking at these photos you can experience the whole building process of the sculpture.

Many thanks to the artist, the students, their teachers and even some visitors for their cooporation and hard work. Thanks to the city of Borgloon for helping us making this happen.
