PORTAM CIVITATIS

PORTAM CIVITATIS

PETER SNIJDER

BELGIUM

This blue and purple illuminated pavilion with its pointy towers and arches might remind you of the many Gothic churches that were constructed all over Europe between 1140 and 1500. But there is an important distinction: the materials (textures) used by Belgian artist Peter Snijder are nothing like the heavy stones and enormous windows from which those colossal structures were erected. PORTAM CIVITATIS is a simple construction of fragile threads that light up like drawn lines. Exhibited either on land or on water, this installation is like a spatial blueprint, Snijder’s own design for a fantasised architectural structure.
