(…) very often nature has to make way for humankind and its constructions. Another level can be added as well: after all, nature and its elements can also be seen as spatial disruptions for humans. Subsequently, questions arise: What does the relation between nature and humankind look like? What or who is a spatial disruption? Do the polystyrene blocks inherently form a contrast to the serene landscape, or are they more closely connected than one would initially assume?

“I see it [the journey of the van] as a dance,” Luuk says while he gazes at the path in front of us: “a dance between nature and humankind.”
The above text is an excerpt from a text written by Floor van den Heuvel, who has maintained a dialogue with the artist over the duration of the residency. Spatial Disruptions was organised by SIGN Projectspace, Groningen and funded by Gemeente Groningen, Mondriaan Fonds.
