the big adventure - little church of persingen - 1989

All paintings on bitumen paper Bart Drost has made until 1987 are represented in the church of Persingen. Of each work three fragments have been chosen; these five hundred sections are applied to hand-moulded and -painted tiles. Together with two thousand sunflower yellow glazed tiles they make up a floor that has been perfectly constructed in loose sand. After the exhibition period of three weeks the floor was removed and the tiles were then used in various houses in The Netherlands, England and Germany.
