EQUINOX Sun/Moon 1992

Perron I, Delden
publication: artist’s notebook

Evening, sunset, half an hour prior to the rising of the moon. In the former waiting room of Delden railway station a fire is lit in a dish. A man squats next to it and feeds the fire. For this purpose he uses twigs placed around the room in the form of a half-circle. Outside, a speaker stationed on the street relates a story about light, and alongside the tracks another story is told about fire. Meanwhile, inside the room, the smoke gets heavier.
The next day, through the window, one can see a circular form of piled bricks which functions as a sun dial. It is a small monument to time and place.
