Inspired by the gigantic model The Grand Maket Rossiya in St. Petersburg, I made a model of my neighborhood: the Seefhoek in Antwerp-North. It is a place that inspires me every day and invites me to make new performances, videos and installations. I didn't create a realistic model of the Seefhoek, but rather a model as a theater set annex film studio where all my future artistic plans and dreams for this neighborhood have found a place.
