Because we are attached to what we experience in the present, we are experiencing the loss of what we know as something bad or terrible. We soon lose sight of the other processes that take place. But when the old one is about to perish, a new situation is created. And vice versa, if we only focus on the future, we forget the beauty of what is going on now.
These new, natural situations, where no human influence has yet been exercised, are characterized by a serenity of tranquility and an irrepressible beauty.
This project focuses on a disaster area where the decline occurs at high speed and with a lot of tragedy: the earthquakes in Groningen.
Egbert's work at Open Stal wants to show us to avoid forgetting the foundation of the new world in the Groningen earthquake area and that there is beauty in the tragedy of an earthquake, the fire of those involved and the process.
