Hugo de Groot plein, Dordrecht, The Netherlands

Hugo de Grootplein, Dordrecht, 1994

Commission in accordance with the project 'Dordrecht, Cultural City'.
The escape of the historical character Hugo de Groot from the Castle of Loevestein (Gorinchem, The Netherlands) in a book chest inspired me to create this object.

'If the book chest is gone, the books are left behind.' It consists of a stack of ceramic 'books' with titles of the writings of Hugo de Groot and Spinoza, placed on a base made of asphalt and shaped after the floor plan of the Loevestein castle.
