Tadashi Kawamata - Project Burchtheuvel

Tadashi Kawamata (JP) builds large wooden sculptures in the open space. As he lets the local community help build his sculptures, they can be labelled as social constructions. September 2011, the Japanese artist worked together with twenty visual art, architecture and interior design students for two weeks in Borgloon. They built a wooden sculpture around and on top of the Burchtheuvel, a historically significant place in Borgloon. They researched how the Burchtheuvel could once again play a fully-fledged role in the city centre. When you ascend the artwork, you get a magnificent view of the spacious surroundings of Borgloon.

Location: Burchtheuvel (behind the city library), Speelhof 15, Borgloon.

Access: parking facilities nearby at Speelhof (Pa).
