Built in 1959, the Rietveld Pavilion in Amersfoort is one of architect Gerrit Rietvelds most important later works, recognised as a leading example of functional, objectivist building in the post-Second World War period. With its spare, almost Spartan features, the Rietveld Pavilion is spatially unlike any other building in the world.

I was intrigued by this building with its clear brick stone walls. I wanted to use one of the corners, to create a small installation with tubes, that seemed to come from the space behind the wall and entangled in the exhibition space,  landscape elements were flowing on top of these tubes, grown from the same material: every element in this work is made of copper.
