Passage (2013) by Jeroen van Bergen

As commissioned by Van Eyck, visual artist Jeroen van Bergen has realised the artwork Passage at the archway. The idea behind the work is to make an inviting gesture and establish a bridge between the street and the Van Eyck gardens.  Van Bergen was asked to use the existing ‘vernacular’ architecture, a hodgepodge of cubby-holes, lean-tos and compartments. The result is a playful work that blends local and international elements, that conjures up the feel of bazaars and mazes and alleyways and gates and kiosks.
