Centre for Contemporary Art, Vijfhuizen
The task was to re-fit an ammunitions storage shed belonging to a fort so as to fulfill it's new role as a centre for contemporary art. As with all 'restoration' jobs, finding a balance between meeting the needs of the new use whilst respecting the integrity of the older structure is not always an easy one.
Introduced into the body of the shed are five 'fittings out' that run along rails and that can be slid, rolled or hinged in relation to the older structure. Their movements are seen as forming both a continuity with and comparison to the trajectories of projectiles that were once employed to defend the fort and to the lines of movement made by cyclist, motorist, artist and curator in their day to day goings on in and around the fort.
