InstallationPackage RHINE    



    Rhine  
   
The River Rhine symbolically reflects the quality of life in Europe. In what ways does this concept of 'life quality' express itself in the various practices that connect the people of Europe, i.e., those who live near the river?

 

Concept   When I was invited in 1989 to work three months in a studio in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, la Suisse Romande, I travelled from the Netherlands to Switzerland over land.
  In 1990 I decide to return to my native land by a river which divides Europe into countries, while connecting thirty centuries of history and thirty nations. The river is called according to the German etymology Rin: flow.
