"Halte"

We made a site specific installation for “VZW Kompas”, an orientation- and observation center that welcome kids who find themselves in a problematic life situation.

 

Everything that Kompas does is for the wellbeing of their residents. Therefore we wanted to do the same for those kids with our installation. We created a place where they can relax and unwind, a place where they can connect with each other and have fun outside.

To translate the work vzw Kompas does into an installation, we made a wooden shelter for their garden that is permanently set in scaffolding. Translating the idea that they give the kids a temporary home and at the same time they are constantly working on creating a better future for them.

 

A red tube oriented to the north, runs straight through the tight grid of tubes. This refers to their name “kompas” (Dutch word for Compass) and the orientation work they do.
