“The Dutchman Jeroen Doorenweerd enriched the Museum’s garden with, as it seemed at first glance, a sculpture resembling an imposing table or footbridge which, as a palisade, offers an imaginary platform from which to view the activities of the Museum. This garden sculpture evolved, however, from a rational analysis of the Museum’s architecture. Doorenweerd projected the floor-height and the length of the exhibition hall’s great squares in the simple form of a detached wooden sculpture. This factual and verifiable work of art is drenched in minimalism: it bisects the garden and acts indirectly in the tradition of someone like Carl Andre, as a “place” in the space.” (Luk Lambrecht: accenten verschuiven, Catalogue 'Accenten van een Verzameling', Part II , Dhondt Dhaenens Museum, Deurle, 1996) Collection museum D'Hondt-Dhaenens.
