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.
