Art festival TRACK: a contemporary city conversation brought together artists and their creative works in the city of Ghent, Belgium. Benjamin Verdonck (writer, visual artist and theater director) envisioned an interesting looking tree house entitled vogelenzangpark 17bis, a small replica or a symbolic addition to a building already located in the park, a typical piece of architecture from the fifties. The organizers of the event explain: “In the context of TRACK Verdonck continues his research into the strength and function of theatricality in the public space. He appears in Vogelenzang Park, a hidden piece of Ghent on the Blaisantvest, with some social housing and a clubhouse where local senior citizens come together to play cards or shuffleboard. The replica is too small to be accessed as a tree house, but does fill the spectator with a desire to withdraw to a place where he or she feels free and can reflect.” What hidden meanings can you detach from this original art installation?
