I am lying at the Seadeer at Maasvlakte 2 Rotterdam 2010

Measurements: 15 m x 8 m x 8 m


Hi…., where do I see you on the Maasvlakte? ….. ‘I am lying with the Seadeer’


I want to take you along in my search for the designs I made. If you want to come along, close your eyes and lay down on your towel in the warm sand. The sun is shining bright and it’s a beautiful day. A gentle breeze provides cooling, and the seawater is clear. You have your cooler and a good book next to you and your children are happy and excited. 


‘You land – on the beach

I have a collecting tick, I collect stories….Stories about Maasvlakte 2, Stories about Rotterdam, Stories about the sea, and long gone history, Stories that are made up, stories of people.


I collect shapes, objects, drawings and collections, 

Collections that seemingly have nothing to do with each other, 

I make connections that an outsider is not yet able to see. 


I am an archeologist, I dig, deeper and deeper, I dig up connections, the images and the stories, that are all hidden in the cubic meters of sprayed sand from the Maasvlakte 2. I dig in musea, in the meaning of La dame à la Licorne, I dig in the role of the senses of desire, I dig to the beauty of paradise, the Hortus Conclusus.


I am an artist, From my own being I imagine my own desire to create paradisiacal places with art. 

Especially for visitors to Maasvlakte 2, to play with ideas, backgrounds and meanings.

Images that stimulate fantasy in an elegant way. Recognizable and rich.

Here stands my sculpture.
