Ghent, Belgium

When Piet Van went to the art academy in Ghent at the age of 14, he was completely mesmerized when discovering the towers of Rabot. He developed the idea of styling these conical towers, saw them as abstract and wanted to interfere with the landscape by stretching a tight canvas over them. The result was 2 green cylinders with 2 green cones with which he hid the towers and on which he painted what was lying behind them. To promote the restoration of the Rabot in 1985, Piet Van was commissioned 20 years later by the city and the organization 'Round Table Ghent 68' to realize an art project around it, enabling him to realize his artwork.
