This object measures the Jan van Eyck academy in Maastricht, by attaching an 18 metre high aluminum pole to the building. The sculpture was made at the time when I was researching Lafayette Anticipations in Paris, a renovation project by OMA. At the same time, that institute reached out to the Jan van Eyck academy to learn about their programme and shape theirs accordingly. I was intrigued by the idea of two art institutions imitating each other and wanted to leave a physical trace of this comparison. The sculpture remained against the building for several months, until it was struck by lightning.
