During the 12 week exhibition at the sculpture garden "Achter de Westduinen" in Ouddorp in the summer of 2020, the work "the beauty of today is no guarantee for the future" was shown. This work consisted of 12 plastic bags filled with damp dune sand from Schouws. Schouws sand on Goerees soil. Every week, during opening hours, the plastic was removed from one bag. For these actions 12 people were invited and asked to rag on the title of the work.
Where the plastic was removed, the shape changed under the influence of sun, wind and rain. This gave us the opportunity to look at then, now and later.










The beauty of today is no guarantee for the future,
in the Bunder summer 2018

Under very different circumstances, I did a similar project at the Bunder in s'-Heerarendskerke in 2018. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 16 August and 16 September. Here they lay undisturbed in the full sun on sheets of glass surrounded by grass.
