In Dialogue

Ter Elst, BE


The artwork consists of two separate entities forming a homogeneous work. It combines natural materials and bronze. Its is located at a youth care centre near Antwerp.

This natural living art sculpture will in time grow into a monument. The work has been partly built with the interaction of the youth at the centre, hereby giving them a podium of achievement.

The first part shows intrinsically how a tree grows. Using segments of trees, and linking them together, the growth processes can be seen in a different context.

In the centre of the second part of the installtion is a planted lime tree.  

Bronze sculptures have been integrated into the installtion.

Working as a visual artist, Will Beckers searches for several layers   within his projects. The participation of the youth at the centre helped develop a platform for an "outdoor" exhibition space.
