THE VILLAGE

‚Äč

The village was a temporary sculpture based on the parish house and the church of Gotem, the native village of Gert Robijns. The sculpture was a white, 75% scale-model of the original buildings and Robijns placed it in an open space 10 km away, at the head of the runway of a military airfield in Sint- Truiden. It consisted of a steel skeleton structure anchored to the runway, on which the wooden silhouette of the village was erected. In the second phase, the entire structure was painted white, due to which the scale model clearly emerged as a sculpture in the landscape.
