Messages of all kind in neon are a typical and familiar urban feature. They are by nature very visible, but at he same time they can almost disappear in the surrounding cityscapes. The pure material structure is transparant.
The iconography is also straightforward and very familiar. Two geometric human figures in permanent action. They fight or maybe dance or are in constant confrontation… Minimal but playful. This installation can function as a strong landmark. For the neighbors of Netwerk, the visitors, the people living and working across the river and also the people passing by on the trains between Gent and Brussels.
