Spreekgestoelte (Juweel Enamel series), 2017

This object has been created as a pilot-intervention for Kunstfort Kasus (link). By standing on the object, the user activates the lectern, just as a repurposing can activate heritage. The reflective material functions as a camouflage: it literally reflects the surroundings and becomes part of the artificial landscape. The historic brown lacquer paint used, like the Kunstfort, has now been made active and functional after being preserved for decades.
