The Golden Calf

Groningen, commission, September 2005

The assignment given by 3plex in Groningen was to create out of a very diverse set of materials a functioning Bar. Altar and the Bar are mainly seen as opponents, yet their existence is totally intertwined. Once their where one and the same thing devided by God’s word some 3500 years ago. The disgn of ‘The golden Calf’ represents the common denominator of bar and altar. It gives a preview to a time of unified festivity; it brings together what is separated since almost 3500 years.
